    Story
    "I wish Soames's story could go on forever"

    It took me a good hour to get used to the narrator's British accent (the pace may have been a factor), but he has really brought to life Soames, who is now one of my favorite fiction characters. I was pleasantly surprised to see the narrator try a Southern (SC) accent to great effect.

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    Story
    "the least enjoyable of the forsyte collection"

    i loved the forsyte saga. this is the second book in the sequel. i liked this one least, as it seemed a bit self conscious and not as timeless as the installments that came before. john galsworthy's writing and wit, however, remains impeccable.

    "Good story "

    The story dragged on at times and I felt as though I wouldn't be able to finish it. It lacked a certain charm of the previous Forsyte books. I found the secondary characters boring and didn't care for their stories. It was only toward the middle to end that it became any good and humorous. The narrator did a really good job and was able to add life to otherwise dull characters .

    "Difficult to understand"

    Found the reading voice and the material read to be a bit to hard to understand clearly. Reading (or hearing) should be relaxing and this one makes you work to hard to keep up.

    Story
    "Society life in the 1920s"

    Gives a very good feel of life at the time, and the story grips you.
