    I loved the first book in the Forsyte Saga so much that I went straight on to listen to 2 Once again, I enjoyed every moment of the audiobook which is superbly narrated by one of my otherwise least favourite narrators, the late David Case His voice is a perfect match for Galsworthy s writing The wonderful prose, the great characters, the biting satire, the evocative depiction of middle class England at the dawn of the 20th century all combine to make this a novel an absolute treat I think ...

    Marvelous book as the Saga continues with another generation Here we see the conflict between cousins Soames and Jolyon, and we are being constantly asked to determine which person has the most redeeming qualities That is difficult as we see Soames as the Man of Property who gets love out of owning something even his wife is property vs the hopeless dreamer in Jolyon who falls in loves with Soames estranged wife As there are dilemmas galore here and I certainly understand why John G...

    The Forsyte Saga The Forsyte Saga was not planned as such but developed over years with sequels coming naturally as they did, and human heart and passion and minds within settings of high society of a Victorian and post Victorian England chiefly London and its solid base in property.When it was published it was revolutionary in the theme a woman is not owned by her husband, and love is not a duty she owes but a bond that is very real however intangible, that cannot be faked.Wednesday, September 10, 2008..The Man of Property The Man Of Property, with its very apt title, begins with Soames Forsyte, the man of property who not only inherited but is very good in acquisition of property and taking care of it As such he has virtues necessary to society, honesty and prudence and , but lacks in those that cannot be taught and must be developed by sensitivity those dealing with heart He has no comprehension of those, and proceeds to acquire the object of his passion, his first wife Irene, pretty much like he would any other property with steady and unrelenting pursuit ...

    Siamo alla fine dall Ottocento e l epopea della famiglia Forsyte continua, dopo il primo capitolo Il possidente , con sempre pi contrastati interessi Perfetto, orchestrato con maestria incomparabile, Galsworthy per me come Trollope Regala ore di compagnia impagabili e mai delude Nel 37, l anno in cui la grande Regina era salita al trono, l avo dei Forsyte Superior Dosset co...
