    The Thorn Birds is a robust, romantic saga of a singular family, the Clearys. It begins in the early part of the 20th century, when Paddy Cleary moves his wife, Fiona, and their 7 children to Drogheda, the vast Australian sheep station owned by his autocratic and childless older sister. It ends more than half a century later, when the only survivor of the third generation, the brilliant actress Justine O'Neill, embarks on a course of life and love halfway around the world from her roots.

    Anne says: "disappointing"
    "Disappointing narration of a great book"
    Overall

    This is one of my favourite books of all time. I bought it without taking the time to listen to sample. A lesson well learned! An Australian novel needs to be narrated by an Australian. I found myself constantly shaken abruptly from the storyline by mispronounced words, not just place names, but basic words like galahs and emus!
    Ditch this version and find an Australian narrator Audible! I feel let down big-time!
