Very slow paced

No where near to Kane and Abel. Most of the time it was revision of previous book and rest of part was just elections and elections. Lack the flare and hype built up in first book

A Master Piece

An intricately woven tale, makes you fall in love with every character. Jeffery Archer is a maverick with words.
Nicely read.

Disappointing half book was a recap of Kain & Abel

I eagerly purchased this sequel to Kain and Abel. BUT the first 23 chapters (over half the book) was devoted to a condensed version of Kain and Abel, before it got onto the story of the prodigal daughter. So this story could've been told in the 6 hours that were left of the audio book.

OK, but not Kane and Abel

The follow up to Kane and Abel spends the first half of the book recapping that story through the eyes of Florentina, Abel's daughter and the heroine of this tale. Ultimately for me, that was more interesting than what followed. Fairly pedestrian in pace, unusually for Archer, and just not that much fun... Narration also very robotic. Overall, very average...

Easy Listening

Nothing stressful here! Just a good story, told well! If you want something challenging or deeper this is probably not for you, but for a great story, well written.. a relaxing read.

Disappointing

No where near as good as the first book cane and able very long with out much of an interesting storyline going on

A Tale of Two Halves

Enjoyable book. Having just finished Kane and Abel, I found the first half of The Prodigal Daughter was a recap of Kane and Abel. However second half of the book was brilliant

Good Story.

I enjoyed this story of love, loss and suspense. Maybe not just as exciting as Kane and Abel buy I wanted to know more about these two families. Looking forward to the next book to follow the next generation of Kanes!

No where near as good as Kane and Abel

This book was disappointing. If you have read Kane and Abel then you could skip the first half altogether. The second half was boring and predictable. Maybe the narrator is to blame she was very dull and monotone.

Not as good as Kane & Abel

So many political passages in here that lost my interest. Also the narrators voice was quite robotic and lacked warmth.
Story wrapped up quite well at the end

Energetic tale of a bold woman

Florentina is the female icon that every woman should learn to admire. Her persona is strong, passionate and filled with intellect.

Archer has delivered again with this wonderful sequel to Kane and Abel.

A Jeffrey Archer Classic

This next chapter in the Kane and Abel chronicle does not disappoint. I read this book over 20 years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it then and that sentiment has not altered in listening to its Audible rendition. Jeffrey Archer is the master story teller. In my opinion one of the best. Go on listen and see that I am not wrong.

Another great from Jeffrey Archer

Would have preferred a non American voice but I got used to it.

I always find it hard to stop listening to Jeffrey Archer. A really great read/audio.
