Product Description

From the Back Cover

Ever since the publication of Battle Cry more than thirty years ago, Leon Uris has continued to write bestselling novels. Each displays all of the author's skill, for he is a writer at his best when the subject seems almost too big to handle. One of the most popular storytellers of the twentieth century, more than 5,500,000 copies of his novels have been sold in Corgi alone.

In Trinity, he writes passionately about the tragedy of Ireland - from the famine of the 1840s to the Easter Rising of 1916, a powerful and stirring novel about the loves and hates, the defeats and triumphs of three families - a terrible and beautiful drama spanning more than half a century.

About the Author

Leon Uris lives with his wife Jill in Aspen, Colorado. He is the author of several bestselling novels, including Mila 18, Armageddon, The Angry Hills, Exodus, Trinity, Battle Cry, Mitla Pass and Topaz.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John Holland on 21 Sep 2008
Format: Paperback
This book describes the interactions and feuds between Irish catholic farmers, the aristocracy and protestant workers from mid 19th century up to the start of the First World War. With rebellion brewing, the interactions are laced with poison, with all parties protecting and furthering their own interests.

The poignant moments of family crisis (births, deaths and marriages) are superbly portrayed, and there is energy in the build-up to key events, which almost compels but just falls short.

This is a well-written book, that describes background and history in great detail to back up the story. But it fails to build on the beginnings. The book builds a compelling plot to a point, but the conclusion moves into short summaries that are almost notes of the planned ending, compared to the previous prose.

Some years later, Leon Uris wrote Redemption as a sequel to this novel. With better use of time-shifting, Redemption is a better telling of both its own story and this one.

Format: Paperback
This is a must read book for students of Irish history, or for those who enjoy a good, pacey yarn. It’s well researched, written in an easy to read, straightforward style and while it gives a biased view of Irish politics, you can perhaps begin to understand why the Irish nationalists are the way they are. Don’t be put off by the politics though. Uris explores the characters and shows all their strengths and weaknesses and you are swept along with their exploits and loves. A smashing read, hugely enjoyable, exciting, sad, funny – yeah, it’s probably got just about everything.

A powerful story set in the mid 19th century, following the lives of three families, all affected by their Irish lives.LU has woven a strong novel, intertwined with Irish history and injustice. You cannot help but be moved by the tragedy that was the plight of the Irish peasant under the yoke of what was effectively British tyranny. LU does not set out to correct injustices, nor is this an attempt at anti British prpaganda, it is a powerful story of a time past and some of the strong characters that circumstances threw up.There are strong characters emerging from this book, whom you will love or hate in equal measure, but it's a story that will touch the heart.

LU does have the occasional habit of " rabbiting on " a wee bit at times, but you will quickly learn to speed read over these parts, but overall " trinity " is a powerful and moving story ( yes it's long at nearly 900 pages, but it's a damn good story ) which is worthwhile reading

Format: Paperback
I have always been fascinated by the history of Ireland and this book, whilst written about three fictitious families, accurately captures the absolute tradgedy of the Emerald Isle from the famine of the 1840's to the Easter Rising of 1916.

The author captivates his readers with his undoubted knowledge of the sensitive subject matter and his ability to passionately describe the harsh realities of life as an native Irish person.

Personally, I think this book is a must read for all those who have wondered why Ireland has endured such tragic troubles for so long.

For many, the book will be revelationary and undoubtedly contribute to a more informed perspective of the barbarism associated with the island.

The book is incredibly well written and Leon Uris has surpassed himself in constructing this masterpiece, for which I highly commend and applaud him.

Just read it!

I was about to start reading the sequel to this book and, as I hadn't read this one, I wanted to read it in sequence. Good storytelling and well written.
