©2004 Jeffrey Archer; (P)2009 Macmillan Audio
This was a well-done book. I appreciated the character development. It would be suitable for more audiences if he didn't include sex details. That wasn't necessary for the story and made a good book into a cheap, trashy novel
If the characters were not so 2 dimensional
Just for this author
The characters are completely not believable as actual human beings. Abel is all knowing and has spies everywhere but is unable to tell who is benefactor was? Both Kane and Abel live for their children but are willing to stop talking to them? Why was the woman on the train in Siberia? Closed into a coal hold for an extended period when it was hard to breathe after the first few minutes? I would think he would die of Black Lung Disease before the end of the journey. Is George a fool or a great worker? Henry became a congressman????
I only got through it because I had 18 hours of driving to do. I tried to enjoy it, but realised a few hours in that the writing (and editing) aren't great.
The subject matter and the big picture theme were interesting, but the characters were single dimensional which left the entire book to be boring and predictable.
The best thing to come out of listening to this book is that I now know to avoid Jeffrey archer in the future.
The narration was good and is what kept me in there till the end.
I love to listen to books...
Way beyond awesome
All of it
I cant single out one favorite character...I loved them all
I read this book about 30 years ago and loved it. I just finished the audiobook and loved it again. Kane and Abel is a wonderful story that stands the test of time. If you're looking to be entertained, this audiobook should do the trick.
yes, because it was very interesting
All of the charaters were good. I especially enjoyed Abel because of his accent.
never listened to Jason Culp's performance before. Now I know he is great!
I enjoyed it throughout.
