Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer

Today I finished reading Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer. It is a good book. But I believe it is 200 pages too long. Only the beginning 100 pages where Abel fights desperately for freedom from Russian prison camps and the last 100 pages where the lifelong feud between Kane and Abel comes to a dramatic conclusion are gripping and the rest of the book is long and tiresome.
It also has sequel The Prodigal Daughter. I think I would skip it after the painful hours of reading this book.
