    The three novels that make up this trilogy have long been recognized as masterpieces of 20th-century literature, and Galsworthy as one of its leading exponents. But don't let that be the reason you put off listening to this wonderful work. There are passion and lust in these pages, high art and low comedy, and unthinking violence that ride alongside ever-correct manners. Scandal, tragedy, despair, rape, accidental death, marriage, remarriage and a healthy leavening of births all unfold against a rolling backdrop of a world war.

    A wonderful and engrossing story

    I would wholeheartedly recommend this book. It is a nearly contemporaneous account of the attitudes of a sector of Victorian society which has strong ..Show More »

    "So many people have written and claimed that their families were the original of the Forsytes," wrote Galsworthy, "that one has almost been encouraged to believe in the typicality of an imagine species." It is the Spring of 1920, 34 years on from the beginning of the Saga. "Young Jolyon" is married to Irene after her divorce from Soames, and they now have a son, Jon. Soames has re-married and has a daughter, Fleur. A new generation of Forsytes comes of age and the Saga continues.

    Not as good as the others

    I preferred the first two books in the series but this one was still worth listening to and very enjoyable.
