Not long ago I read The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough and so I surprised myself by reading this book so soon afterwards as I do not tend to read the same author twice in such close proximityIn The Thorn Birds I recognised a good author although the story itself did not interest me In Morgan s Run the two were combined together a great story written by a good authorMcCullough has a very definite style and voice in the way she writes I think the most important part of a book is the author and how he or she writes because in the end it doesn t actually matter what the book is about eventually a good author could make watching paint dry sound riveting Not that either of these books was like watching paint dryMorgan s Run is about the first convicts to be sent to Australia after the American revolution put a stop to them shipping them over there So merry olde England decided that it would be a good idea to ship them out to an unknown country and leave them there The story follows Richard Morgan a character of whom you will fall in love with it s impossible not to I get the feeling that McCullough seems to like tall men with long dark curly hair as that is how she described Father Ralph in The Thorn Birds too In fact it seems all the decent good attractive characters in this book happen to have long dark curly hair which is absolutely fine by me as I happen to like that in men too One thing that seems to be a running criticism with McCullough is that she can spend ages describing certain things in such detail and then uickly rush through something else that is uite important in about a paragraph so much that if you re not careful you could miss itShe writes with a calm confidence that I find very trustworthy part of her style feels as if she is nurturing you the reader and then sometimes there is a harder edge straight forward and informative It is a rather peculiar style I think but I like it and it works It makes me feel as if I am really there part of the history and the world she has created but not uite lost or abandoned to it I have not read very much about Australia I confess it is a very hot country and I feel comfortable reading books in cold or wet countries which I know makes very little sense on the face of things Australia always seems so far away and you do not hear of it very much which should be of a reason to go out and read about it which I fully intend to doI really enjoyed Morgan s Run and can t wait to startThe First Man in Rome soon sometime this year

Characters Morgan's Run

Characters Morgan's Run Read & download ï Morgan's Run 100 Rom England's shores to Botany Bay and the rugged frontier of a hostile new world Morgan's Run is the epic tale of love lost and found and the man whose strength and character helped settle a country and define its futureCover Artist Tom Hallma. This has been the shelf for years and I finally got around to reading it The story takes place in the late 1700s after the American Revolution in Bristol England on a slaverconvict transport vessel and eventually in Norfolk Island by way of Botany Bay Australia Colleen McCullough does amazing research to provide incredible details about life in whatever period she is writing using language which is not too modern and describing things as they might be perceived by the character who knows nothing of what we know today Not only does it help the reader to feel a part of the time and place but this serves to feel that you re going deeper into that time period to understand the regular person s experience of those history stories that we superficially learn about in schoolIn particular by reading this novel not only did I learn a bit about the settlement of Australia by British convicts the obvious history lesson here but the state of the lives of the working class English really gave me an insight about American culture and its revolt against government taxation which continues until this day For example the British pervasiveness of licensing every aspect of commerce in England was insane Unlike in America where licensing or less serves the purpose of ensuring safety and compliance with social norms in England it served only to raise revenue for the government Yes I realize that regulation in America also provides a revenue stream but I don t wish to have that argument here As to the particulars of the story Morgan is Richard Morgan a real life historical figure in Norfolk Island history Norfolk Island is in the middle of the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand and a part of the Commonwealth of Australia He was convicted of larceny in England and eventually sentenced to 7 years transportation to Botany Bay The story tells the epic of his life and how his steady character work eithic insight and luck allowed him to make a new life for himself on Norfolk Island The author lives in Norfolk Island and as a result I m sure her basic familiarity with the story of the island and Richard Morgan is than most folks have particularly non Australians I don t know much about it so I can t attest to how much liberty has been taken with the history Having read this I do want to read about Australian history in general realizing that I really know very little about it beyond the basic concept that it was settled primarily by convicts who were resettled thereIf I had one complaint about the story it would be that Richard Morgan dosen t seem to have any fatal flaws Granted things happened which led to the conviction right or wrong which were certainly influenced by his character but ultimately things seemed to have worked out better for him as a result This story certainly glorifies him I suppose that is the liberty of historical fictionAside from the somewhat greater appreciation of the circustances leading to the American Revolution and Australian settlement that I now I have I also really liked the handling of the character of Stephan Donovan fictionalized although there was a Stephen Donovan Midshipman in the First Fleet In Morgan s Run he is an openly gay Miss Molly who is Morgan s best friend All very interestingly written
