    Story
    "Great second time around"
    Would you listen to Kane and Abel again? Why?

    It was a great listen really enjoyed the story and would listen again in the future.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kane and Abel?

    The end when they realise all the emotions felt over the years was pointless. (Trying not to give away the storyline)


    What about Jason Culp’s performance did you like?

    Very good enjoyed his narration.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not laugh or cry but did feel an emotional connection to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book when it was first published, really pleased I purchased and listened on Audible it was a great experience.

    Story
    "A totally excellent book to listen to.."

    I was told that Kane & Abel was an excellent book but never got around to purchasing a copy to read..

    Since obtaining a version this has been a most enjoyable story of two men from different backgrounds. Who ground out their differing life's & career's. In parts it is quite emotional reflecting on how life can take it's toll or even drive individuals to greater things...
    An excellent listen that made my journeys to work & back ever more enjoyable... no doubt I will listen to it again or purchase a hard copy..

    Story
    "Very good - thoroughly enjoyed"

    Very good - thoroughly enjoyed - the narrator was exceptional bar a few American mis-pronunciations. It's a long story so you need to pace yourself - hardly ever a dull moment and also quite inspiring.

    Story
    "Couldn't stop listening !"
    If you could sum up Kane and Abel in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant story for Jeffery Archer, didn't read it first time around. Sorry when it came to an end, have since purchased the follow up book ' The Prodigal Daughter' if it's half as good as Kane and Abel it will be well worth a listen !


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abel was my favorite character, he had such a hard start to life and kept on until he almost had it all !


    What about Jason Culp’s performance did you like?

    Good voice easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes !


    Any additional comments?

    Love Jeffery Archer's story's The Clifton Chronicles are also great .
