    Very interesting book. A bit slow in some parts, and I felt like I wanted a bit more closure regarding some of the characters and story lines, however, I gained a lot of historical knowledge from this book and I really enjoyed the time I spent reading it.

    The Terrible Beauty

    The novel Trinity, by Leon Uris, is the history of Ireland inside an epic fiction about a young man named Conor Larkin. Conor Larkin was a poor, Irish, Catholic young man who grows up and fights to gain the emancipation of South Ireland from the North, Protestant, Irishmen and their degradation. The novel takes place in the late 1800¿s through the early 1900¿s. The Irish depend on the potato as their primary source of food. The Protestant nobility of Ireland forces the Irish to work the land as peasants. When the potato famine arrives, the Protestant nobility decreases the size of the Catholic farms spuring a religious war due to survival from starvation. I liked this novel because it is well written. The novel is further spiced up due to its political history, and romance. The novel has an engaging and powerful plot that Uris so masterfully shows. I give this novel four out of five stars only because the beginning of the novel is too lengthy and at times bored me, but the rest of the novel made up for the action that the beginning lacked.

    Trinity Waz Of The Hook!!!

    This novel is based upon the era of the late 1800's where the Irish, mostly the Catholic Irish suffered greatly from starvation and hunger dued to the blight which was a potatoe crisis of unexpected measures. Most Irish people either emigrated to other countries such as the United States or England for work (about 1.5 million people). There are three different families with very distinct perspectives which focus on the PERSIA (Political ,Economical ,Religious ,Social ,Intellectual ,and Aesthetic) throughout the novel and they are the Larkin family= the average Irish Catholic family, the Macleods= a Protestant Scottish family, and the Hubbles= the aristocratic nobility from England which comprise the 'Trinity'. Even though this novel is narrated by Seamus, Conor's character is focused upon more thoroughly and many of the secondary characters such as Caroline and Roger from the Hubbles are percieved through Conor's frequent involvement with them. Leon Uris manages to incorporate and analyze both of Ireland's political and religious conditions during this time and bring the story to life through the eyes of a young boy and his idol.
