This book is exactly what I wanted. I finished today, on the day the second book is set to be delivered. Perfect timing. Like any large book it did lag in places but personal relationships I loved. And Maud and Ethel are the real badasses in this book.

carlygriff I loved this trilogy! Enjoy 😊 1w

The Thorn Birds | Colleen McCullough
post image

I had to go back to find a good juicy romantic epic. Any other suggestions for me? ( not Outlander I‘ve already given that one a go) Thanks!

marleed Ohh, it looks like you don‘t necessarily need a currently written book. There‘s the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy. 3w
Skeebies05 @marleed I LOVE old books! They have a level of drama I miss from contemporary books sometimes. 3w
marleed Oh then you might want to check these out. It‘s been a minute since I‘ve read them but I loved them at the time. 3w
marleed I just checked and book 1 has a 91% litsy rating which I think is excellent for a book published in the 1920s. ...BTW, if I could only take 10 books to a deserted island, thornbirds is going with me! 3w

Finally on to the last (available) book! Its been a rocky road. High highs and low lows. Here‘s hoping it ends on a high! And come on, lets get back to Tyrion!

Lady_Tigana_20 Tyrion is my favorite. He definitely has a bunch of chapters in book five. 1mo

Finally done. My only complaint is this book could be about 200 hundred pages shorter. But I remain loyal with Tyrion.
