The Forsyte SagaThe Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a splendid family saga written by John Galsworthy.

The book covers the period between 1886 and 1920 and tells the story of the Forsyte’s and their struggle to have the most successful life at that time.

This volume is composed by three books: The Man of Property, In Chancery and To Let.

The first book describes the life of Soames Forsyte and his wife Irene. However, this marriage will have a lot of troublesome issues along the whole narrative. This will led to dramatic consequences for all Forsytes.

It’s a pity that this big fat family saga ended even if this book has more than 700 pages.
