    1. This was a book my mother recommended to me. She read it several years ago and remembered how good it was. And oh how good it was. This is a great story that is told over about 60 years from Europe to America. Archer tells 2 parallel stories. One about Abel Rosnovki and one about William Kane. The story is so well told and so interesting that I felt torn between the two main characters and their stories. You feel pulled away from one story line when Archer takes you to the next. I enjoyed Archer [...]


    2. I don't think so one can ever read a better Fiction than this. What is it that this book didn't have? You can't set any particular genre for it. It had thrill, mystery, drama, contemporary, historical fiction and what not. Oh.! I forgot to mention one thing. It ended with a sense of moral thought. It showed the way people live their modern day lives. Everybody running in one direction, running after money. Money seems to be everything to all of us. But there's an old saying Money can't buy you h [...]


    3. Τα 5 αστέρια δεν είναι απλώς λίγα Δε μπορώ να βρω λέξεις για να περιγράψω αυτό το αριστούργημα. Πολλές φορές σκέφτηκα πως αυτή την πένα δεν την κράτησε ανθρώπινο χέρι.Σ'ευχαριστώ Ειρήνη που μου το πρότεινες! Δεν πρόκειται για ανάγνωση αλλά για πραγματική εμπειρία ζωής. Ήμουν [...]


    4. I read this book because my book club had picked it. Can that sound any more insulting? I think I'd read it before, when I was a lot younger. I know that it is on my mother's bookshelf, she was very excited when she heard that the book club had chosen it. Anyhoo, it is bad. And not in a way that "it is so bad it is good", it is just bad in a way that "pulling nostril hairs with a pair of pliers" is no fun at all.You get the feeling that Mr. Archer came up with the title during an evening's drink [...]


    5. Kane and Abel (Kane and Abel, #1), Jeffrey ArcherKane and Abel is a 1979 novel by British author Jeffrey Archer. Released in the United Kingdom in 1979 and in the United States in February 1980, the book was an international success. It reached No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list. The sequel to Kane and Abel is The Prodigal Daughter, in which Florentyna Kane is the protagonist. The book tells the stories of two men born worlds apart. They have nothing in common except the same date of b [...]


    6. One of the best books I've ever read. Two men from different backgrounds meet and impact on each others lives. One extremely rich and one a poor refugee from the world war travels to America to make a name for himself. Well written with interesting charaters and story. Well worth a read.


    7. With such a clear allusion to the dysfunctional brothers in Genesis, we were intrigued. Would the Able character in Jeffrey Archer’s novel suffer a cruel fate at the hands of his brother? Does the title even refer to a pair of brothers? Does the title even refer to people? Is Jeffery Archer even a real person? These questions plagued us for several months, until finally, we decided to pursue the sensible option and just read the book.William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski are not brothers. In [...]

    9. It was clear from the start that this wasn't great literature by any means--but for the first part of around 200 pages I found it gripping. One of those sagas where you enjoy a panorama of history and watching two powerful characters clashing. The story follows two men born on the same day in 1906. William Kane Lowell, a Boston Brahmin and Abel Rosnovski, the illegitimate son of a Polish baron. We follow their parallel but contrasting from boyhood. Both prove themselves at first both extraordina [...]


    10. This book was exactly what I needed at the time. Just a good story.I loved the parallel storylines of two boys born on the same day on opposite ends of the earth, and anticipating the convergence of them. These are usually my favorite types of novels.It's not the perfect read, though. As I was getting through the first 30 pages or so, I was struck by the feeling I was reading this extended prologue: you don't quite have that embedded feeling with the characters, you're just getting the lay of th [...]


    11. Archer's Criminal Trial for Perjury (from )"On 26 September 2000, Archer was charged with perjury and perverting the course of justice during the 1987 libel trial. The perjury trial began on 30 May 2001, a month after Monica Coghlan's death in a road traffic accident.On 19 July 2001, Archer was found guilty of perjury and perverting the course of justice at the 1987 trial. Prominent journalists admitted to having accepted Archer's 'hospitality' after he was convicted"


    12. I think this has to be the best book I have ever read. I keep recommending it to everyone so much so a friend of mine believes I have shares in the publishing world! I was completely surprised when I read this book. What I thought it would be like and what was delivered far exceeded my expectations. You end up liking both characters despite them conflicting with each other. The ending is remarkable. It is so engrossing that you can actually imagine and visualise what they experienced both physic [...]


    13. اذا أردتم ان تسألوني اي روايات جيفرى آرتشر هي الافضل فلن استطيع الاجابة باختصار كل رواية من روايته بحد ذاتها هي عالم ممتع و مثير و مسلي لأبعد حد !


    14. I guess many people would be ready to kill me if I say that I haven't read any of Jeffrey Archer's books yet! But hey, there was a day when I hadn't read any of Sidney Sheldon's and J.K. Rowling's.This day shall pass too. Thank you Krishna Prasanna for looming over me to get me read it soon.


    15. Một trong những cuốn tiểu thuyết mà mình phải dành 1 tiếng của một ngày bận rộn ra đọc và thậm chí dậy lúc nửa đêm để đọc cho hết chương đọc dang dở.Một cái kết bản thân mình không ngờ. Một cái kết hoàn toàn chiến thắng với tất cả những gì đã châm ngòi cho cuộc chiến giữa hai số phận.------Cốt truyện song song hai nhân vật, xen lẫn ngoại truyện một vài chương. Cảm giác khi [...]


    16. An intensely played out, high-powered drama. A story of two very different men belonging to two different social classes, driven by their aspirations of success, wealth, power and a life-long feud based on inaccurate assumptions and misunderstandings. A fitting ending to boot.


    17. i read it on my hubbys recommendation. its his favourite book out of the four books that he read in his life :p that is why i thought twice before reading itd i LOVED it!!!! enjoyed a lot :) it made me cryit made me laugh and it made me think.


    18. Story OverviewTwo men—William Lowell Kane and Abel Rosnovski—are born on the same day in 1906. However, their births could not be more different. Abel is a penniless orphan who is adopted by a poor Polish woodcutter's family after his mother is found dying by the road. Kane is born into a life of privilege—the only son of a powerful Boston banking millionaire.The book chronicles the parallel lives of the two men. Abel endures hardship, tragedy and oppression but manages to immigrate to Ame [...]


    19. Gold fever. We all know the phenomenon; an obsession, a never-ending fascination and a desperate need for more. As I read this book I experienced something similar; reading fever. When I first began reading this book, I simply couldn't stop. I wouldn't stop. It wasn't even possible. With an almost destructive greed I had to read on, to keep turning the thin pages - and when I finally reached the end, and there were no more pages to turn, I felt completely empty, saddened by the fact, that the bo [...]


    20. This book was amazing. If I had the regular time for reading, I would not have pulled this book down till I finished it. I can rate it among the top 5 books ever read. The lives of two different individuals from different backgrounds and different parts of the world are shown in an awesome way. The thing that matters most is that the storyline and pace are maintained throughout the book and this provides a great sense of enjoyment. Apart from this, the timing of most events breathes a new zeal i [...]

    23. دونالد ترامبليس مجرد شخص وأنما فكرة وفى هذه الرواية الكثير من دونالد ترامب بدءًبالمَن على المهاجرين باعطائهم فرصة وقد تناسى الكاتب أن أمريكا فى الأساس أمة مهاجرين أبادوا السكان الأصليين للبلاد وأستولوا على أرضيهم كما تناسى أيضاً أن أمريكا الأمة المسالمة التى كانت تحارب أل [...]


    24. This is the seventh Jeffrey Archer book I've read and, by far, I've realised that his stories are different combinations of the following constitutents-1. One/two young boy/s as protagonists.2. The boy/s being immensely intelligent and able to pursue what they are after with occasional hurdles.3. Drama of Stock market.4. Politics.This makes the books quite predictable to a point. I may have rated this book a 5 star if this was the first such book that I had read, but the similar pattern in all t [...]



    25. Jeffrey Archer is a wonderful story teller. This is one of his books I've had on my list for a long time. Listening to the audio was a great experience because of Jeff Harding's excellent interpretation. The book is a saga of two families covering sixty years. We know from the title that eventually William Lowell Kane, the son of a Boston millionaire, will meet Abel Rosnovski, a poor Polish immigrant. I enjoyed following their stories through the history of the times. Abel himself becomes a rich [...]


    26. As soon as I started reading, I thought I had read it before in paperback, but couldn't be positive. It wasn't until near the end, when Abel's daughter gets a job in a department store with a fictitous name that I was sure I had. Either way, it was fascinating.Contains some spoilers:This is a really well-written story of two men, born in 1906; one in Poland to a dead woman and raised in a trapper's family, and one in Boston to an "old money" banking family. The author goes back and forth, follow [...]


    27. The gentlemen in Archer's Kane and Able are incredibly frustrating! The lengthy battle for power that the two main characters engage in is drawn out and exhausting. You spend an exorbitant amount of time watching each man grow into his own fortune and power and then the rest of the time is spent watching them waste that same fortune and power, not to mention years of their lives, in a constant misplaced and unnecessary feud for revenge. Both men are annoying in their own right but I found Abel d [...]


    28. Νομίζω το κορυφαίο του βιβλίο. Μια καταπληκτική ιστορία που σε καθηλώνει ώρες επί ωρών για να το διαβάσεις. Κι έχω κάνει μια βλακεία. Εχω χάσει το βιβλίο επειδή το δάνεισαΚαι θάθελα να το ξαναδιαβάσω!Το (ξανα) διάβασα και πλέον το έχω στην βιβλιοθήκη μου! Ενοιωσα την ίδια συγ [...]


    29. قراءة أولى لـ جيفري آرتشر؛ ٧٦٠ صفحة من المبالغة!تقاطع حياة "وودك" المهاجر البولندي و "ويليام" المصرفي الأمريكي بهذه الكثرة أفسدت الرواية.
