    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.

    Story

    The Thorn Birds is a great book, but I have to say the narration could have been a lot better. The Australian accents seemed odd to my ear, and I noticed a few of the words were not pronounced correctly. The most bizarre issue was that oftentimes you could hear voices talking in the background, which was at first startling and then distracting. With that being said, the narration was not horrible. It is a great story that I will probably listen to again at some point.
