    A compelling drama and a merciless scrutiny of a newly monied upper-middle-class family at the turn of the 20th century, The Forsyte Saga has a sumptuous range of characters. If you have enjoyed The Forsyte Saga on television in the past, you will be familiar with this engrossing story; if not, prepare to be completely captivated and engaged by one of the best tales ever told.

    Story

    I watched both PBS shows and they were great. The black and white being the most true to the books. However, the books, wow. So incredible. So amazing. I have now lived life from the 1880s to 1920s. I saw two wars. I lost a King and gained a King. I watched a woman flee from being a piece of property by a man, who really was indeed a good man, only he was brought up to believe that his way was the right way.

    The plot is too complicated to deal with here. However, it deals with a large family of wealth and consideration, and how that wealth colors their thinking and behavior. Believe me, it does do that in amazing ways; some for good, some for bad. Yet, you continue to read, you need to read to understand them better.

    These series of books, and there are many of them, I think 7 to 9, I have forgotten, but I read them all, are without doubt a MUST if one wants to understand the historical method of living in the past century. Also, it is a riveting read. The narration is positively wonderful. I cried when I was finished. I had lost my friends, indeed, almost my family; just as I did when War and Peace was finished. How dare they stop the book? I demand more. Please ... more.
