With the three novels and two short stories that make up 'The Forsyte Saga' Galsworthy creates a family epic that chronicles the transformation and upheaval of Great Britain in the late 19th and early 20th century.

A continuation of the Forsyte Chronicles, I think I liked this one a little bit less than The Man of Property, but it was still enjoyable.

One of the best books I ever read. It is very well written. It also is very, very English. The story has no flaws at all. Read this!

I found The Forsyte Saga on the shelf of my local library a couple of years ago and it has been a decided favorite of mine ever since. While “saga” is not the first word to come to mind when thinking about the British upper middle class in the later days of Victoria, it is apt. The story is a mult...
