Leon Uris retums to the land of his acclaimed  best-seller Exodus for an epic  story of hate and love, vengeance and forgiveness and  forgiveness. The Middle East is the powerful  setting for this sweeping tale of a land where revenge  is sacred and hatred noble. Where an Arab ruler  tries to save his people from destruction but  cannot save them from themselves. When violence  spreads like a plague across the lands of  Palestine--this is the time of The  Haj.


An old but very good book


Leon Uris is rightly famous for his historical novels. The Haj is a fictional story about families who participate in the creation and defence of Israel seen from opposing Israeli and Arab perspectives. While the detail is amazing it demands stamina and attention. I was forced to scan many pages so as to finish the book before I die (I am nearly 80). It is well worth the effort of reading this huge story partly as an education, but also as a tribute to a great writer.

"The narrative is fast paced, bursting with action, and obviously based on an intimate grasp of the region, its peoples, their tradition and age--old ways of life."--John Barkham Reviews
