  • Description

    Kane And Abel by Jeffrey Archer follows the lives of two people, Kane and Abel, born on the same day, but on opposite sides of the world and whose destinies are intertwined.

    Summary Of The Book

    The story of Kane and Abel begins with their birth on the same day in two contrasting environments. William Kane grows up in a life filled with privilege and opportunity. He graduates from Harvard, and eventually becomes a wealthy banker. After the passing of his father, his mother remarries. Kane’s stepfather turns out to be gambler and womanizer. After his mother’s death, he throws his stepfather out of his home.

    Abel Rosnovski is orphaned at birth and raised by a family of trappers. Although he grows up in destitute conditions, he has exceptional intelligence. Abel is asked by the Baron to be his son’s companion. After Abel moves into the castle with the Baron and his son, World War I begins. The Germans attack the castle and murder the Baron’s son. Just before the Baron dies, Abel discovers that the Baron is his real father. He is then captured by the soldiers and sent to Siberia. Abel manages to flee to Turkey and there he is rescued by British diplomats, and he eventually moves to the U.S.

    In the U.S., Abel works as a waiter at the Hotel Plaza during the day, and takes business courses at night. Abel’s hard work and determination is soon recognized by the hotel’s owners, and he is soon appointed as manager. When the Great Depression hits the U.S., the hotel faces many financial hardships, requiring urgent funding from a bank. The hotel owner commits suicide and mentions in a letter that the Kane and Cabot bank refused to help them. Abel promises to seek revenge from the bank. And thus sets forth a chain of events which ultimately changes the destinies of both Kane and Abel.

    The publishing of Kane And Abel was met with huge international success. It grabbed the number one spot on the New York Times Bestseller List. The book was also turned into a CBS miniseries. The book has sold over 34 million copies till date.

    One misconception and life long rivalry!!

    Excellent narration which is easy to understand and the plots are described quite well.
    This interesting story of rivalry takes you to Poland, London, United States of America, and Russia.
    The story is a mixture of coincidences, love, hatred, hard work, fate and what not.
    Keeps you glued. Must read.

    Even A NOBEL PRIZE isn't Enough!

    At the back of the book, The Daily Telegraph reviewed saying, "If there were a Nobel Prize for storytelling, Archer would win". Before reading the book, this statement might seem to be an overstatement and if you think my title is too sumptuous then please read the book.
    The novel revolves around two characters, William Lowell Kane and Wladek Koskiewicz. Two men who cross paths in the future yet with different backgrounds. One gets things too easily being the son of a billionaire and the othe...

    One of the best books I've ever read

    Kane and Abel was recommended to me by one of my close friends and it turned out to be the best bargain as soon as I read the first chapter. Kane and Able is a story of two men who grow up 1000 miles from each other and doesn't have anything in common apart from their birth dates. Jeffery Archer writing is so gripping that many a times the book becomes unputdownable. The book has everything in it- Drama, emotions, love, hatred, success, failure making it a complete package. By far it is one o...
