    Very good commercial novel for those that love to read Jeffrey Archer, Ken Follett, Sidney Sheldon This is the only title by this author translated into Serbian never translated into Croatian If you can get it, find his novel MONEY MAKERS, perfect

    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 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.

    Compared to Talking to the Dead , which I absolutely loved this was disappointing It felt flat, lacking in sparkle, and simplistic Pity.

    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.

    Didn t give the oil industry much thought until I read this book Interesting mixture of fact and fiction which I thought worked very well The story is interesting and the characters had me wanting to care about them, strange for me to worry for a driller in Texas I agree with some points made about the storyline being very linear But I m not sure the oil part would have worked any other way The war part of the story didn t play a strong enough part, maybe because of the early presentation and plot hook With thought, maybe the author could have used flash backs to link the emotions to the past, this is what the story is about instead Doing this, the author could build further the emotions driving the two men in detail with out giving out for the ending All in all a fresh read that gets better right up to the end.
