Summary

Leon Uris’s beloved Irish classic

From the acclaimed author who enthralled the world with Exodus, Battle Cry, QB VII, Topaz, and other beloved classics of twentieth-century fiction comes a sweeping and powerful epic adventure that captures the "terrible beauty" of Ireland during its long and bloody struggle for freedom. It is the electrifying story of an idealistic young Catholic rebel and the valiant and beautiful Protestant girl who defied her heritage to join his cause. It is a tale of love and danger, of triumph at an unthinkable cost - a magnificent portrait of a people divided by class, faith, and prejudice - an unforgettable saga of the fires that devastated a majestic land...and the unquenchable flames that burn in the human heart.

FINALLY!!!!

I've been an audible member since 2006, and I've been requesting this book almost since day one. I can't put into words how excited I was to see that Brilliance Audio was releasing this title at last. The narrator is very good, and the story is just as I remember it. It's very detailed, but I feel like I've been transported back in time to Ireland. This is the book that put visiting Ireland on my bucket list. Thank you audible for finally making this available. Now, please make Redemption, Trinity's sequel, available.

Life changing

An inspirational journey for all people seeking freedom. I read the book 40 years ago and the audio was mesmerizing. Incredible story. The performance was unequaled.

Wonderfully Captivating

Early on when Seamus felt compelled to say the Rosary with true feeling. years ago, in the late 70's I read this book. It was the first book I'd ever laughed aloud while reading. Uris is a masterful story teller.

A MUST READ for all Irish Americans

I'm so glad this book finally came out as an Audiobook. It is essential reading for Irish Americans.
The narrator was excellent and used enough of his Irish accent to understand the phrases and intonations without being confusing to non Irish.

Everyone loves Ireland

This is a heartbreaking story of Ireland. Everyone loves Ireland except the Irish and the Brits. My heart basically hurt through the whole thing. I kept telling myself it was just a book, but it's not just a book. This is most likely the way it was and probably still is in many ways.

finally a new rendition of the best book ever

John Keating intones Uris' book with a true Irish narration. I actually own the 1978 version and have listened to it 10 times. This is the eleventh. The book covers and uncovers the Irish story. Cant wait to get Redemption read by Keating as well. Unfortunately I am at the end of this eleventh reading and will have to let a year or so go by before number 12
