There are some books that you come across in life that are the truly special, the ones you remember for years later, recalling fondly the moments you spent reading it. The books you keep in pride of place on your bookshelf, picking them up from time to time just to stare at the cover or flip through the pages.
For me Kane & Able is one of those books.
I read it over a week, one summer and the memories of it have stayed with me ever since.
This is one of those books that you totally immerse yourself in - and the moments when you're not reading it seem like a dream, you find yourself tingling with anticipation, wanting to steal away so you can disappear once again into its pages.
It's a fantastic read covering the lifes of two great characters.
Quite simply, if you love great stories, go out and get your hands on a copy of this book - don't hesitate - read it. ( )

These two men -- ambitious, powerful, ruthless -- are locked in a relentless struggle to build an empire, fuelled by their all-consuming hatred. Over 60 years and three generations, through war, marriage, fortune, and disaster, Kane and Abel battle for the success and triumph that only one man can have.

Angus and Robertson Top 100 (2006 - 2008) Book #88.
Kane and Abel was an interesting book. Possibly a little depressing at times, but still an enjoyable book to read. It would be a book that I recommend, but possibly down the list from other books. ( )
