    "Wonderful"
    If you could sum up Kane and Abel in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, moving, enlightening


    What other book might you compare Kane and Abel to, and why?

    I could compare this book to Ken Follet - World at Winter, it follows the lives of more than 1 character and how their lives cross.


    Which character – as performed by Jason Culp – was your favourite?

    Abel


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    True to life


    Any additional comments?

    Would listen to again and to more of the same

    "As expected fantastic"

    Although I'd read, seen and knew the story it was still great to hear it.

    "Exactly what I expected"

    With Jeffrey Archer you get exactly what you expect. I enjoyed this book, but it was not amazing. Well written, good characters and a good story. Guessed the "twist in the tail" from the beginning, but that didn't spoil the read. Recommended.

    "Riveting Saga"

    Great story covering a whole generation. Geoffrey Archer is the master storyteller. Some of the obviously 'English' bits inserted for the USA market were irritating and didn't add to the tale. Similarly the obviously 'American' bits that were frankly condescending to my English ear and oh so unnecessary.

    "What a read! YES!"

    Kane and Abel is absolutely EXCELLENT! I agree with one of the other reviewers, don't plan anything before you start it, as you can't leave it alone.

    "Absolutely brilliant"

    Jeffrey Archer has to be one of my favourite authors, this audio book is brilliant. I had read the book many years ago and couldnt wait to listen to it on Audio - I certainly wasnt disappointed. I travel some distance to work each day & couldnt wait to get into my car to hear what happened next - a really good listen that held me spellbound from beginning to end.

    "Archer now trusted"

    Refused to read Archer books in my youth for silly reasons and what time I wasted. Third Archer book in as many months every one has been excellent. If you like stories that keep your attention and make you late for appointments (just five more minutes in the car) then Archers the man.

    "Kane and Abel again!"

    I read this book the first time it came out 30 years ago. It was brilliant then - and now after listening to the audio version ( the intervening years have not been kind lol ) I can tell you it's still brilliant. Even though I knew the ending I still had a great sadness that these two men, who could have been such good friends didn't find out the truth about each other before it was too late.
