    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"
    "I could have narrated it better."
    Overall

    I bought this in a rush, having heard about the book and movie for forever but needing a long book quickly, so didn't look at the reviews. The narration is pitiful! I can only add a chorus to what everyone else has said. I am 6 hours into it and do not know if I will be able to finish it. The speaker is a continuous, monumental irritation.
