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. ( )

I only read this because of the hype at the time of publication, and the fact that everyone at work kept raving about it. Wish I hadn't wasted my time, Pure pot-boiling drivel. ( )
