I loved the first book in the Forsyte Saga so much that I went straight on to listen to #2. Once again, I enjoyed every moment of the audiobook which is superbly narrated by one of my otherwise least favourite narrators, the late David Case. His voice is a perfect match for Galsworthy's writing. The wonderful prose, the great characters, the biting satire, the evocative depiction of middle class England at the dawn of the 20th century all combine to make this a novel an absolute treat. I think of it as a classy literary soap opera and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.
