It's been over 10 years since I read The Haj..The last book I read by Leon, and I read everthing up to that book and I'm sorry I let myself get behind. I'm reading A God in Ruins and when I'm done I promise to catch up and never let myself get behind again. Leon Uris is a brilliant man, a master story teller. Thank You , Thank You, Thank You Leon.

I am in the middle of the trinity and it is my first ever book by him. I must confess, I was rather sceptical about him. But what he writes about sounds like it could have happened and I am sure it did and still at some places does.
I am looking forward to seeing how it'll end. i sympatize the Irish catholics but I kind of understand the protestants views too. It strikes me odd that the priests who were súpposed to tend to their flocks entrusted by God were so cruel and inspiring people to hate and kill just the opposite of what Jesus their master told them to do. But then again it is the same all over the world.....
When mrs. Larkin goes to the priest and tells him that she enjoys being in the bed with her husband the priest condemns it as a sin. I think there's an error in thinking! Have you ever asked: If God wanted us to be fruitful and be many why did he then condemn the way it was to be done as sin? And why is it both the matrimonial duty of the men and women to have sex and kids and the act is sin at the same time? That is something I do not understand.
Was not the original sin stealing from the tree of knowledge of good and bad? If it was sin to have kids, we would not exist today, would we?
enough of this. But these questions did come to me....
Have a nice one!
