Family matters: don't miss our other titles in The Forsyte Chronicles.

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.

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.
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 .
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.
"Society life in the 1920s"
Gives a very good feel of life at the time, and the story grips you.
