The bestselling author of Kane and Abel returns with a powerful tale of a pair of twins separated by fate and reunited by destiny._x000D_ _x000D_ In Hartford, Connecticut, in the late 1940s, a set of twins is separated at birth by accident. One brother grows up to be a war hero in Vietnam and a successful 1990s bank executive, while the other distinguishes himself as a lawyer and politician. Sons of Fortune is as much the story of the making of these two men—and how they eventually find each other—as it is the chronicle of a nation in transition. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally Pearce | 2/3/2014

    " This 7 year old book was one of Archer's best! Twins separated at birth, but done in a way you haven't seen before! Loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/31/2014

    " A pretty "fluffy" book, but entertaining. About twin brothers separated at birth and one day end up running for public office against each other. Follows their lives from birth to 40ish, detailing how their lives parallel one another. Fun read, but nothing earth-shattering. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allan Fisher | 1/25/2014

    " I always love a Jeffrey Archer. I know they are formulaic and cliched, but I still love them... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babete | 1/10/2014

    " ( Filhos da Fortuna ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trina Hollis | 1/10/2014

    " Enjoyable but I have to say not one of his best found it a bit long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie Cobb | 12/30/2013

    " I'd forgotten how much I love to read Jeffery Archer. Great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole | 12/28/2013

    " Great story! Couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ciara | 12/19/2013

    " Easy to read but VERY predictable and a little bland!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fina | 12/19/2013

    " Menarik mulai dari awal sampai akhir cerita..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linsey | 12/7/2013

    " It's a bit slow at first, and at times the characters are hard to keep straight. I could've done without all the fine details about the financial world/stocks but in the end it was a worthwhile read that really left me wondering what I would do if faced with the same situation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 11/28/2013

    " Well written, developed characters and plots; not necessarily a page turner. Not something that I would likely read until 2 AM but still a good book. Will read other Jeffrey Archer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramaa | 11/12/2013

    " One of my ever favs!! Amazing book ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 10/28/2013

    " A good story line, kind of slow in the middle but the end leaves you saying WHAT. all I can say is remember the small details!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 woody | 10/20/2013

    " Enjoyable book for the most part. Story about twins separated at birth spanning 40+ years. Interesting, but a bit hokey at times, kind of over the top coincidences that bring them together. I would say 3 1/2 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adnaan The AdMan Sabireen | 5/17/2013

    " Superb. Really awesome, but as much as expected from the master. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 4/22/2013

    " Another excellent Jeffrey Archer. A little predictable but even still, an excellent read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marmar | 12/17/2012

    " Confusing read. I found myself re-reading pages to try and clarify what happened. Too much going on for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicolle Ruga santaromita | 12/11/2012

    " Archer writes good easy reads- interesting storylines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Beth | 9/5/2012

    " I'm a real fan of Jeffrey Archer. Son's of Fortune was an excellent story of twin brothers separated at birth. Really good, but I felt that the ending was somewhat weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kriscrowe | 2/10/2012

    " Unfortunately, I left this book at the Forseth/Dekan/Koziel cabin so it took me a while to get it back and pick it back up, but it was a good enough read that I did pick it back up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anupama Talwai | 10/29/2011

    " Not as great as his earlier books but still engrossing "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kitty | 9/24/2011

    " Had the makings of a great story (twins separated at birth) but it was 200 pages too long and although the last 100 pages (I skipped a lot) was intense I couldn't give it more than 2 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dayna Whittier | 9/19/2011

    " Pretty good so far. It's keeping me interested. About two twin brothers separated at birth. Their paths keep crossing, but they don't about each other ... yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy Hartman | 9/10/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debi | 5/23/2011

    " Very stiff and dry. The story of twins parted at birth and then finding out late in life was ok, but a lot of the plot twists did not ring true and the characters had absolutely no life in them. Probably won't read Archer again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitsuyasu | 5/9/2011
