Read Reading The Sons of AdamAuthor Harry Bingham – Albawater.co

Read this many years ago and I still think about it till this day I liked it very much In a way it reminded me of Jeffrey Archer s novel, Kane and Abel A story about two men who were closer than twins and who became rivals in the oil industry Starts in the late 1890s and goes through WWII Good read. An epic tale of brothers divided, family rivalry, fortunes lost and won, set against the dramatic background of the early days of the oil industry Two boys are raised as brothers Alan is the son of the lord of the manor, with all the privileges which come with that birthright The other, Tom, is the son of the gardener Together, they learn to argue, fight and bond in friendship Social difference divides their paths as adults but nothing can break their bond until a tragic misunderstanding occurs in the trenches of World War I Now instead of the closest of friends they will be the bitterest of rivals in a burgeoning industry oil From the early days of drilling in Persia, to wildcatting in Texas, to the corridors of Whitehall and Washington, this is the story of two remarkable men and the very different women who loved them I found this very interesting, slightly formulaic with the two brothers theme, but nonetheless enjoyable Very informative about its subject, moving along at a lively pace, and overall very well written, which in itself is a bonus in these days of Kindle self publishing.http ebookproofreader.wordpress.com I found this very interesting, slightly formulaic with the two brothers theme, but nonetheless enjoyable Very informative about its subject, moving along at a lively pace, and overall very well written, which in itself is a bonus in these days of Kindle self publishing.http ebookproofreader.wordpress.com Compared to Talking to the Dead , which I absolutely loved this was disappointing It felt flat, lacking in sparkle, and simplistic Pity. A family tale that takes you on an interesting journey. Absolute epic story Amazingly good book, but I felt that the ending was a bit rushed and too over the top when I think about the character and feel of the book up until then Very much recommend to read it though for those who would like a mini saga. My favorite of the three Harry Bingham books I ve read to date, this is saga set from early 1900 s about two brother who fall out over a misunderstanding during 1st world war and the subsequent rivalary in business that ensues oil business Great read and storyline Highly recommended.
