Jeffrey Archer is a consummate story teller and Kane and Able is a fantastic example of his skill. When I first read this book 20 years ago, it was only a single title and Archer was an up ‘n comer. Now, I’m able to read the series without waiting for the next volume to be written; a decided advantage. Archer constructs plots like the finest of architects would plan a gravity defying building.

Abel’s reputation as a hotelier was quickly spreading across America, and the press had taken to referring to him as ‘The Chicago Baron’. He no longer cared about the jokes behind his back. Wladek Koskiewicz had arrived and, more importantly, he was here to stay. Then the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Since that dreadful day of September 1, 1939, when the Nazis had marched into Poland, later to meet the Russians at Brest-Litovsk and once again divide his homeland between them, Abel had been sending large sums of money to the British Red Cross for the relief of his countrymen.

Born on the same day near the turn of the century on opposite sides of the world, both men are brought together by fate and the quest of a dream

Born on the same day near the turn of the century on opposite sides of the world, both men are brought together by fate and the quest of a dream. These two men - ambitious, powerful, ruthless - are locked in a relentless struggle to build an empire, fuelled by their all-consuming hatred. The first novel in the Kane and Abel series.

He moved stealthily towards the river, where the strange noise came from, darting from tree to tree, feeling the protection of the bark against his shoulder blades, something to touch. Never stay in the open, his father had taught him. When he reached the edge of the forest he had a clear line of vision all the way down the valley to the river, and even then it took him some time to realize that the strange cry emanated from no ordinary animal. He crept towards the whining, even though he was now out in the open.

I think Kane and Able is one of the best books that Jeffery Archer has written. I read it years ago when it first came out, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it for the second time. I live in a senior retirement community and have passed it around to friends here and they also really loved it. After reading it, I purchased the next 2 in the series, which I had never read, and enjoyed them very much. They are also being passed around. I have a kindle, but when a book like this is so great, I buy the book so my friends can have the pleasure of reading it. Then they are donated to our library.
This could have been the title of this book instead of one of the Clifton Chronicle books. This book of historical fiction compares two men born the same day on opposite sides of the world, of different social backgrounds. William Kane born out of wealth and a successful family, and Wladek Koskiewicz , changing his name to Abel Rosnovki, born to an unknown woman, and raised by a poor trapper's family, going through enormous hardships to stay alive in a Russian labor camp. Both men of exceptional ability had the same ambition to build an empire ,be successful and wealthy, but by a twist of fate became bitter enemies for life. Not unlike Cain and Abel of the bible, their main goal in life was to ruin the other one. It was this wish, that ultimately consumed and interfered with their goals, professions, family, and eventually health. This was their undoing. In life be careful what you wish for. It was an awesome book with many lessons about life and what is important.
I very much enjoyed this book. I was completely engrossed in the two boys lives and all the drama that went on. As they got older their feud was clearly pointless and unnecessary . That was frustrating . There is a bittersweet ending which saddened me, but I guess with a feud like that some sadness comes with it. Overall I really enjoyed the story!
"Kane & Abel" is an epic tale following the lives of William Kane and Abel Rosnovski. The two men are born on the same day in 1906 into drastically different situations - Kane into Bostonian wealth and Abel into Polish poverty. The reader is in for a real journey as they infants grow into young prodigies, they both face setbacks, and they both display a domineering will to succeed. The timeframe for this book includes two World Wars, the Great Depression, McCarthyism, and the election of John Kennedy. The author deftly tied these events into the story and uses them to bring the men together in what becomes a life-long battle between the two.

In the end, this is a moving tale of struggle, revenge, and pride. We see the terrible cost financially and emotionally that each man pays as they refuse to budge on their positions, and the impact this has on the men and their families. Neither man was a saint, and I found myself switching between the two as to which I liked the best. This was an entertaining read, and one that made me think about the choices we make and how hard it is to forgive.
The biblical story of Cain and Abel kept interfering with my ability to process the story, but I enjoyed every twist and turn of the plot line. At first I had a hard time deciding who was my hero. When I finally let go of trying to write the story myself, I enjoyed every word of Mr. Archer's.
I just recently discovered Jeffrey Archer and am glad I did. This was a very interesting book with well developed characters. There are two baby boys born on the same day, one into wealth in America and one into poverty in Poland. The book outlines the story of both men's lives until they converge and the story gets even more interesting. It ends leaving an opening for the next book. The only thing I didn't like were several short descriptions about different young men's first sexual experiences. This did not add to the story and was totally unnecessary. I wish authors would leave the descriptive stuff out. There was little violence or foul language.
Archer's detailed grasp of the times and the local color of the cities and countries of this saga carries you along in an improbable story of two driven men who are enemies for life, one a scrappy Russian immigrant and the other a strategic Boston Brahmin. Yet, ironically, they are really not, but their social roles and pride made them do it!
I absolutely love Jeffrey Archer's writing style. The Clifton Chronicles one of my favorite series. This was written equally well, I am just a happy ending reader. Knowing the synopsis given when deciding if to buy it, you can pretty much guess all things will not end up roses. Great book however
