More Forsyte Saga than you got on TV!,
This review is from: The Forsyte Saga: Volume II (Two) - The White Monkey/ The Silver Spoon/ Swan Song: "White Monkey", "Silver Spoon", "Swan Song" v. 2 (Paperback)
If you thought the Saga of the Forsytes stopped where the TV series did, you are in for a lovely surprise. Here are 3 further books of what happened to Fleur and Soames next. Brilliantly written, with lots of stream of consciousness musings from the older Soames, who is now a sympathetic figure in the way he was not when Irene was around (she does not directly appear in these books), we move on in the 2oth Century, with lots of witty observations on life and events of its early years. It is a wonderful read, and I shall have to get the next 3 books, Forsyte Saga 3.
The only reason I did not give this 5 stars was the actual printing of this edition has typos and is not great, but the quality of the writing is 5 star.
