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...

    "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.

    "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.

    "Good story"

    I liked the story. It jumped back and forth between two men's lives, separately and connected. I did not like the reader. He sounds like a PBS documentary. He created no emotion for any of the caricatures. A shame.

    "A Must Read."

    I feel as if Jeffery Archer is a personal friend. I adore everything he writes and this story is worthy of his praises. The sign of a true master is the ability to write compelling stories to keep your fans coming back time after time. I read the Clifton Chronicles and was amazed with the depth of talent I had discovered . I tell everyone to listen to these stories because I know they will be as entertained as I. You will not be disappointed by this author or the performance in anyway.

    "The Best Book Yet!"

    This was the best book that I've listened to in the past two years. I highly recommend anyone listening to this book it captivated my attention from the very first sentence to the very last. I will listen to every book that this author has written he is just that good. If you're hesitating on this one don't you won't be sorry.

    "Another triumph for Jeffrey Archer"

    So throughly enjoyed listening to this book. I found myself getting so involved with the characters and the plot that I hated to see it end. I love historical fiction as the reader can see history unfold in the brilliant storyline by Jeffrey Archer.
