Publisher's Summary

Exodus is an international publishing phenomenon - the towering novel of the 20th century's most dramatic geopolitical event. Leon Uris magnificently portrays the birth of a new nation in the midst of enemies - the beginning of an earthshaking struggle for power. Here is the tale that swept the world with its fury: the story of an American nurse, an Israeli freedom fighter caught up in a glorious, heartbreaking, triumphant era. Here is Exodus - one of the great best-selling novels of all time.

My favorite book of ALL Time

I'm very afraid that nothing I say is going to do this book justice, but I'm going to try. I read this book when I was a senior in High-School and I loved it then. That was 7 years ago. I've been requesting this book for a while so needless to say, I was overjoyed when I found it on audible this morning. What attracted me to this novel from the beginning was my fascination with Israel and how it became a nation in 1948. I had just returned from a trip to Israel 6 months before I read Exodus for the first time. so I knew a lot of the history. This book brought back not only knowledge but also memories of places in Israel where I had gone. It was bitter-sweet. This novel makes me feel like I'm coming home. What tugged at my heart about this novel the most was the characters. To me, these are some of the best in literature. You really get to see who these people are. They make mistakes, they laugh, they love, they quarrel, Etc., and the reader feels all that. Uris really brings out the conflicts, the emotions, the tension, Etc. so very well. I feel like I am inside the book. I'm on chapter 10, but I'm already hooked. The narrator does a good job I think. If you have any kind of interest in Israel, I'd say read this book. I love it and can't wait to finish it. To me, this book is like a pair of worn jeans. It just feels good. I hope audible puts up Trinity and Redemption next. Thank you audible. You have no idea how happy you've made me today.:)
