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.

©2009 Jeffrey Archer; (P)2009 Macmillan Audio

    "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..

    "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.

    "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 .

    Any additional comments?

    This was a story I had wanted to listen to, since my sister read the book years ago and I wondered why as she found it so gripping.It did not disappoint me, I loved the ties with real historical events. It made it more believable. It was well researched and was a good story, well told. It is worth a credit!

    Story
    "WOW! This is a no brainer. Buy it now."
    If you could sum up Kane and Abel in three words, what would they be?

    Compelling / gripping / fascinating


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The book is based on two characters, both interesting, but Abel has to be favourite because of his terrible misfortune and his strength and determination to succeed despite all that is thrown at him.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I find I cannot single out any particular scene because I enjoyed every single minute of this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There was a great many moving moments but I was particularly moved when Abel witnessed his sister being raped by the soldiers and then dieing, and also when William died, having come so close to meeting his Grandchildren.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt that Jason Culp, the narrator, did a fantastic job of the different accents, mainly Polish and American, but also for the female characters. I am sure that this was vital and ensured the utmost best in listening enjoyment. I read the paperback version of this book many years ago and enjoyed it very much, but I can honestly say that the audible version was pure pleasure.
