Is Thorn Birds a true story?

Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough is not a true story. The story is set in Drogheda, Austrailia which is a town that does not actually exist but is based on the remote towns that were created in the Northwest Territory. All of the characters were created but some were based on people McCullough knew.

Is The Thorn Birds appropriate?

For A Sheltered Teen, ‘Thorn Birds’ Was A Much-Needed Eye-Opener Therese Walsh knows Colleen McCullough’s famous novel — which contains not just sex, but sex with a priest — might not be “appropriate” for teens. But, she says, it’s the perfect sort of dangerous.

Why is it called The Thorn Birds?

The book’s title refers to the mythical “thornbird” that searches for thorn trees from the day it is hatched. When it finds the perfect thorn tree, it impales itself on a thorn and sings the most beautiful song ever heard as it dies.
