Publisher's Summary

Kane & Abel for a new generation!!

They had only one thing in common - William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski, one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other a penniless Polish immigrant. Two men born on the same day on opposite sides of the world, their paths were destined to cross in the ruthless struggle to build a fortune.

The marvellous story, spanning 60 years, of two powerful men linked by an all-consuming hatred, brought together by fate to save - and finally destroy - each other.

    Loved this book when I read it many many moos ago
    And loved listening to it second time around
    I did like the narrator Jason Culp but sometimes found Williams voice quite weak.

    I would rank it as a tie for number one with Game of thrones!

    I can't say there is one memorable moments as this book is so fast paced that it is full with memorable moments!

    No, I can't say i have


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

    yes, definitely cry

    I have loved this book. It's one of those books that's just a story but makes you think as well. I feel it's worth a read, money well spent. 😊 Happy listening. 😊

    Story
    "Unputdownable!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kane and Abel?

    Thoroughly enjoyed the contrast of the two lives early in the book. The contrast of one privileged individual and the other fighting tooth and nail just to survive.


    What does Jason Culp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    At first I didn't think I would get on with the reader but after only a few minutes I was immersed in the story and never gave it a second thought.


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

    This book made me want to achieve more in my own life which I think is an incredible feeling to put over in a story.


    Any additional comments?

    Trying to work through the BBC's top 100 books to read, this so far is up there among the top 10% for me. Far better than many other supposed 'classics'.

    "An easy to listen to classic"

    The plot is well known and full of unlikely coincidences but it rips along so you really don't mind. A very enjoyable listen
