'A perfect read ... The kind of book the word "blockbuster" was made for' Boston Globe

Treasured by readers around the world, this is the sweeping saga of three generations of the Cleary family. Stoic matriarch Fee, her devoted husband, Paddy, and their headstrong daughter, Meggie, experience joy, sadness and magnificent triumph in the cruel Australian outback. With life's unpredictability, it is love that is their unifying thread, but it is a love shadowed by the anguish of forbidden passions. For Meggie loves Father Ralph de Bricassart, a man who wields enormous power within the Catholic church ...

As powerful, moving and unforgettable as when it originally appeared, The Thorn Birds remains a novel to be read ... and read again.

'Beautiful ... compelling entertainment' New York Times

Couldn't put it down


An Australian classic that cannot be put down once you start. Why did it take me til my 40's to get round to reading The Thorn Birds? Loved every bit of it, particularly the unsuspecting moments.



This book got me in right from the beginning - a page turner


I can't believe it's taken me my entire adult life to get round to reading such an amazing book as The Thorn Birds. So well written, descriptive, easy to read and visualise. A true Australian read that is not so much a love story, but an Australian story.
