the titans

The Titans, by John Jakes: This is the forth in the series The Kent Family Chronicles. This and the others in this series should be required reading in our American Schools. Though novels they give realism to our American history from the very begining . Jakes has used real people and events and spiced it with the "Kent" family participating in the growth of our country. I'm only sorry making a living precluded my reading earlier in life.

Finally the civil war!!

Finaly the Civil War has come. I found the last book in the series was a hugh dissapointment in the series butt his one was just liek the rest full of action romance and adventure. I would not say it's the best of the series but it's still entertaining from start to finish. We see the hatred of the North and South. We see a nation crumble, we see romance on it's highs and lows of the war. One of the best emotional book of the series we see how the people delt with the war. Cant wait to read the other ones.

The Kent story continues

The Titans begins at the very beginning of the American Civil War and continues until 1862. Louis Kent, son of Amanda Kent, has taken control of the family business and fortunes, but, despite being his mothers son, is turning out to be a heartless, profiteering opportunist.Jephta Kent is working on the familys newspaper when, through dramatic circumstances, he meets his son Gideon from whom he has been separated for many years. His former wife has remarried to an actor named Lamont, who is a fanatical supporter of Southern rights and who is secretly plotting to seize the fortune left to Jephtas sons, to further the Southern cause. As America is drawn into a war between the North and South, Gideon becomes a cavalry officer and takes part in many terrible battles. The book ends with the news that Gideon is missing in action--can't wait to start Book 6-The Warriors.

An excellent book

This book was one of the best I've ever read. Not only were the characters interesting, but the historical backround was extensive. I learned and understood many more facts about the Civil War that will help me in school. I finished it quickly and was disappointed to see it end. I have not read the other books in the series, but I will now. It would make a great movie. This is the perfect book for anyone intersted in history, scandals, or conspiracy.


the entire series was great....would be a terrific mini-series.
