    " Leon Uris is a master storyteller and this book is no exception. Although published in 1983, the content is current to the present day reader as it chronicles the European anti-semitism leading to the "exodus" in the 19th and 20th century to Palestine and the creation of modern-day Israel. Translated into 50 languages, it should keep the interest of most to the last page. "

    " I finally finished this after many stops and starts. Parts of it were fascinating and I now feel that I have a much better understanding of the incredible hardships faced in building a new Israel. Now I find myself wondering which parts of the story are true and which fictionalized. Definitely not beach reading material (it took a lot of work for me to get through), but worth it for the education. "

    " This was a thorough (!) description of a subject I didn't know much about. I learned a lot, but have no sense of its objectivity. The style of writing felt somehow dated, and had oddly placed exclamation points which kind of bugged me. "

    " Can't wait to see the movie again. Again, it's not what I expected. It's dated especially with the Kitty character, but it wetted my appetite for some real history of the era. "

    " I could have done without the crappy subplot with the American nurse. But I won't dock it a star for that because the rest was very compelling. It taught me a lot about Israel's formation that I still remember years later. (Tip: get through the first 50 pages or so before you put it down.) "
