Praise for THE FORSYTE SAGA: 'An immortal achievement...it is, at all levels, readability itself
Financial Times
Just because they were set in a world of frock-coats and ornate drawing rooms, we should not be blind to their modern dilemmas... the satire is sharp, the dialogue, elegant and witty, and the characterisation - dazzling
Scotsman
THE FORSYTE SAGA was such a cracking good story...compulsive, as well as very modern and outrageous
Sunday Times
Still a terrific read, a satisfying, long, absorbing family story...which knocks spots off its pale imitators
Susan Hill
The books I most wish I'd written
