    "Epic storyline"

    This story is vast in it's scope, and a true rages to riches tale laced with twists and turns.

    This story is just waiting for a director and producer with some vision to make an awesome series of movies.

    "Another GREAT book by Jeffrey Archer"
    What did you love best about Kane and Abel?

    For some reason I did not see the end coming in this one! Many twist that kept me in sitting on the driveway listening to see what was going to happen next!

    "well written, unnecessary sex"

    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

    "A Classic"

    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.
