Publisher's Summary

William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski, one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other a penniless polish immigrant-born on the same day near the turn of the century on opposite sides of the world - are brought together by fate and the quest of a dream. Two men - ambitious, powerful, ruthless - are locked in a relentless struggle to build an empire, fueled by their all-consuming hatred. Over 60 years and three generations, through war, marriage, fortune, and disaster, Kane and Abel battle for the success and triumph that only one man can have...

    "A bit too predictable"

    Expected a bit more from how the story started, but ended up quite displeased at how predictable the story was.

    Story
    "There is a pattern ..."

    i really enjoy the writing style. multiple perspectives from the main characters creates depth. the story line is captivating with twists and turns.

    on the down side the author seems to take bits from his previous works.

    Story
    "A Tale That Goes On For Decades"
    What did you love best about Kane and Abel?

    This was a very good story and once it is over, you realize that sometimes you think you know the facts when you actually do not. I think it gave me something to think about.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I believe Kane would have been my favorite character. I won't say why, you will find out at the end of the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Epic Saga of Rags to Riches


    Any additional comments?

    This may be considered to be a SPOILER ALERT: I was a little let down at the end of this book because so much treachery had gone on between Kane and Abel for their entire lives ... seemed like such a waste of the time and talent of two very successful men ... money does not bring happiness ... at least it didn't here.

    "This is one good book"

    I'm 70years old. I cannot see to read. This is by far one of the very best books that I have read or listened to. What a great book!

    "Brilliant story. Brilliant narration."

    One of the best audio books I have listened to. Really good performance and the story has got a truly classic feel to it. Would definitely recommend it.

    Story
    "Loved the story. Narration, not so much."
    What did you love best about Kane and Abel?

    The story. A bit predictable for Archer, but I chose him because I like his story telling.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kate, Kane's wife. Accomplished, wise, steadfast, loving, respectful of her husband's wishes, but willing to circumvent them when he was clearly wrong.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Culp?

    Whoever read the Clifton Chronicles.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Success, family, love, happiness all succumb to hatred and desire for revenge.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Loved reading Kane and Able."

    Looking forward to reading the Prodigal Daughter. Jeffery Archer does not disappoint. Having also read his latest novels you can see his development as an outstanding writer over the years. Love how he develops characters.
