It seems lately that I just couldn't find an audiobook that grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Everything seemed "all the same". I was beginning to get quite frustrated. I decided to go back into my library and maybe listen to one of the hundreds of audios I've downloaded in the past 2 years. I came upon one my my favorite authors, Jeffrey Archer, so I clicked his name and it brought me to his list of books, most of which I've listened to. So glad I did! He once again, didnt fail to give me something I could sink my teeth into. It was COMPLETELY enjoyable to listen to. Somewhere right between "cant press stop" and "wow, what a great story......looking forward to the next chapter". Archer's tale is one of two men, born at the same time (early1920's) but worlds apart physically, emotionally, and financially. Yet, their differences were only one facet of this great story. The struggles they both experienced in life to reach their goals had one common thread. They both had grit and integrity. Their experiences somewhat mirrored each other yet so differently that it made for an extraordinary story line. So well written and so easy to listen to, yet, not one that puts you to sleep. The author did a fabulous job of entwining these men's lives in and out throughout the story, it gave it that "Oh my gosh......how ironic" feeling. Often it was like I was above, peeking down on them and watching their lives unfold. Please do yourself a favor and make time for this one. I expect you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Interesting how our perceptions change over the years. I first read Kand & Abel about 30 years ago and found it a fast moving narration of two powerful, competitive men. However, just havng finished it on audible, i find it a very sad story of two people neither accepting the opportunity to understand the other. Interesting how differently a novel can read to a 65 year old vs. a 35 year old.
