THE THORN BIRDS
T is for:
THE THORN BIRDS by Colleen McCullough
When I think of The Thorn Birds, I think of family dysfunction, people to love and hate, a setting that unfolds with vivid imagery and a love affair that lasts and lasts--like the energizer bunny. A book to love.
I read this book many years ago and before the mini-series hit TV, but I will always think of the two main characters looking like Richard Chamberlain (as the priest Ralph) and Rachel Ward (as Meggie).
First Line: On December 8th, 1915, Meggie Cleary had her fourth birthday.
End Line: Still we do it.
Doesn't tell you much, huh?
