Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the rugged Australian Outback, The Thorn Birds follows three generations of the extraordinary Cleary family through joy and sadness, bitter defeat and magnificent triumph — driven by their dreams, sustained by remarkable strength of character... and torn by dark passions, violence and a scandalous family legacy of forbidden love.

Review:

"Australia is big, vibrant, and relentless and so is this story, which does for the little known land down under what Giant did for Texas and Gone With the Wind did for the South. A Literary Guild selection, the fast moving novel is obviously destined for the best seller lists as well as Hollywood. It should be a smashing success, and deservedly so, as a paper back." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Review:

“Beautiful….Compelling entertainment.” New York Times

Review:

“A heart-rending epic…truly marvelous.” Chicago Tribune

Synopsis:

Now, 25 years after it first took the world by storm, Colleen McCullough's sweeping family saga of dreams, titanic struggles, dark passions, and forbidden love in the Australian Outback returns to enthrall a new generation. As powerful, moving, and unforgettable as when it originally appeared, it remains a monumental literary achievement — a landmark novel to be read... and read again!
