Having nothing else with which to read myself to sleep, I took it to bed with me. When the clatter of the nightingales the original thorn birds gave way to the pre-dawn chorus, I was still reading, utterly engrossed in the best bad book I had ever read. Rereading it now, the same thing happens: I read on hungrily wanting more, but not of the story of forbidden love between damsel and cleric. The main plot of The Thorn Birds has always struck me as absurdly implausible, probably because I can remember too clearly the time a priest asked me in the confessional if my impure thoughts involved any particular person. The temptation to answer "Yes, Father! You, Father! It would have been just for the crack.
The Thorn Birds is a best-selling novel by the Australian author Colleen McCullough. Set primarily on Drogheda—a fictional sheep station in the Australian.
