    " I don't know why, maybe I wasn't in the right mood, but I didn't enjoy this as much as I should have. Great story, dramatic family... but I just couldn't dig my teeth into the way I usually do. I will probably give the next in the series a chance... in a while. Or I may just watch the BBC version. "

    " I found the book a quick read, with a fascinating story. The characters represent many facets of the human condition. Looking forward to reading the rest of the saga. "

    " I so enjoy Galsworthy's wry, dry, elegant prose! This is the first book of the Forsyte Saga trilogy. I plan to complete the trilogy and then read the six other books about the Forsytes this year. plus the short Interludes. "

    " This book was pretty interesting and definitely well-written. It really sucks you into the characters. The story isn't what you would call compelling (sort of soap opera-esque), but somehow it's very engaging. "
