Format: Mass Market Paperback
Int his classic epic of historical fiction, Leon Uris pens his account of Israel's dramatic birth from the time of the first aliyah in the late 19th century through the War for Independence. He introduces heroic characters, dastardly villains and innocent victims. First and foremost, this is the story of the Ben Canaan clan. Heroic, emotionally damaged Ari, the Palmach soldier, his father Barak, one of the fictional founders of the Labor Zionist movement. Barak's brother, known as "Akiva", leader of the outlaw " Macabees", modeled on the real life Irgum movement of Menachem Begin. There is Kitty, the American gentile who falls in love with Ari and ultimately with the struggle for a Jewish homeland, Dov, the young embittered survivor of the Warsaw ghetto and Karen, Danish holocaust survivor who Kitty unofficially adopts. There is Ari's firey redheaded sister Jordana who clashes with Kitty's American idea of what a young woman should be like. and there are others as well. Uris uses the melodrama of the personal story of these characters to show how Israel came to be. It is all here, the escape by Barak and Akiva from their Russian shtetl and their hike (!!!) to the promised land. The horror of the holocaust. And most importantly, the struggle during the post-war mandate period with the British and of course the Arabs.
Uris is not the historian that Herman Wouk is. He has a strange tendency in his historical novels to change the names of people and incidents. For example, in real life, the ship known as "Exodus" was forced to cyprus. It is this that roused the world's ire. In the novel, of course, the ship is permitted to dock in Palestine. This confuses two different ships and two different incidents. Why does he use the name "Macabees" instead of the Irgun? Who knows?

In very good condition. Like new. Didn't have the original cover, but that has nothing to do with the contents which are in excellent shape. It was a gift for someone, thank you.

I have read all but one of Uris' works and like I said above he is a master, character and plot development is second to none.

This very well written book enlightened me on many aspects: world history, plight of the Jews in many countries of Europe, role of different countries in their treatment, courage and faith of the immigrants landing in Palestine. I will read this book again and would recommend it to anyone who is open to learning more about history.

Exodus by Leon Uris is a gripping novel. This epic story is the epitome of human natures ability to suffer, to persevere, and to succeed. This novel comes highly recommended by me.
The Exodus follows the story of people. Not just any people, a special type of person, a Jew. The Jewish population has undergone numerous tyrants that have tried, unsuccessfully, to banish the Jewish population from the face of the earth. The Exodus follows these people as they return to their rightful homeland of Jerusalem. During the course of this novel, they face numerous obstacles on there road to the rebirth of a Jewish homeland. Even after the forming of the Jewish state of Israel, Jews are persecuted for pursuing peace. The story of the Israel is astonishing. I was quickly surprised by the benevolent and unselfish ways of Jews through their lives. They give all to their Israel, including their life.
The Exodus focuses on a few important characters. Yakov Rabinsky a.k.a. Akiva, Jewish extremist fighter. Jossi Rabinsky a.k.a. Barak Ben Canaan, brother of Yakov, Jewish conservative, father of Jewish politics. Karen Hansen Clemet, Jewish refugee in search of her father. Dov Landau, Jewish survivor of the German concentration camps. Kitty Fremont, American nurse out to look for a daughter figure. Jordana Canaan, Jewish sabra fighter. And finally, Ari Ben Canaan, famed fighter for the Jewish people. The Exodus has been the one of the few assigned reading books that I have enjoyed reading. The story of these people and their home is an example of human nature at its best. This novel connects with me. The story, the character, the settings, and the plots all are not fanaticized. Whether or not it these actual people existed is irrelevant. It is all so believable.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has to many pages to tell us that story, the first part of the book, when Ari Ben Canaan rescue some young jewish boys and send them to Palestine is very interesting and it will have you reading all the time, but when the writer writes why Ari does what he does, and the biography of his life starts since his grandparents (that he never saw) is boring and boring, this part of the book is written in more than 100 pages, the second half of the book is worst, describes the story of the independence of Israel and the problems with the english army and all the arabs, this part of the book has more than 350 pages, this story is written in the book Jews, God and History by Max I. Dimont in less than 100 pages, so if you already read that book, you don't have to read this one.
The "love" story of Ari and Kitty is not even a story.

I could not put this book down while I was reading it. Although it is a fictional story, it teaches a lot about the history of the Jewish people leading up to the foundation of Israel. It reads like a story, not a history book, though, and I found it very interesting and easy to read. I especially liked how Uris intertwines the current happenings with the personal histories of all of the characters. I think this book is a must-read because it sets the beginnings of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and even explains why a lot of things are the way they are today.
