Not so with Colleen McCullough's Morgan's Run. This historical novel, based on the founding of The Botany Bay colony, centers on the life of one man, Richard Morgan. Begun in the mid-1700s, the story tells of the ricochet effect As an emerging writer, deep into learning the skills of the craft, I read a lot of professionals' advice. Not surprisingly, then, I find that most books - regardless of genre - follow this model.

Morgan's Run is a historical novel by Colleen McCullough published in 2000 about the life of an English prisoner driven to the first penal colonies in Australia in the 18th century. Much of the novel is set in the penal colony on Norfolk Island. It starts off with the prisoner's life in Bristol, England and describes in detail his survival of the transportation on a prison ship to Norfolk Island and how he dared to hope in the hard life of a convict.

Based on McCullough’s own family history, Morgan’s Run has all the marks of a classic.

I love a story that fascinates, to think of it months and years later, remembering the vivid, striking characters and settings. CM had a remarkable gift with words, casting spells with each of her works. I read Morgan's Run many years ago and have never forgotten the horrors, anguish, and eventual survival Richard Morgan lived through. Returned to the library to borrow again but it was no longer on their shelf, and 3 online libraries didn't have it either. So glad to find it available on Kindle and immediately added it to my collection! Genealogists will also appreciate that the story is based on an ancestor of CM's family, which I also found fascinating. If you think this story starts out slow, keep reading and hang on! CM never disappoints! She was/is one of my most favorite authors, and her talent was truly a gift from God she shared with the world. RIP Colleen.

The book is a good one, but really takes a long time to get any place. It is not what I had expected when I bought this book. I have read The Thorn birds at least 10 times and was expecting something entirely different than this story. The story has to do with how unfair the justice system in England was in the late 1700's and how they shipped convicts to Australia to remove them from the prisons in England. It didn't seem to matter what your crime was from stealing a piece of bread to murder they were all treated the same. The trip from England was almost 2000 miles & took a year to get there. The Captains of the ships really didn't care if the convicts lived or died on the way there. The ones who did survive faced many hardships everyday. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in this kind of history. But if you're looking for a love story intermixed with it...this isn't the book.

Great historical fiction about a precolonial British scheme to export convicts to then unexplored Australian continent as well as the even more remote Norfolk Island. Colleen McCullough is one of my favorite authors of historic fiction and can write in a raw and explicit style atypical of most female writers. It's not a short read but the journey is well worth the effort as it describes some fascinating parts of the world and describes an incredible human ordeal during a relatively unfamiliar event in late 18th century history. Another of her outstanding stories.

I first read this book when it was newly released and I was young. I never forgot Richard Morgan and his life. Having read it again all these years later I'm only sorry that there's no sequel. I would so like to know what happened next. To all the wonderful characters, to Norfolk island, and Australia. Hints in the afterword about Pitcairn Island and Fletcher Christian make me want the sequel even more. Is Colleen McCullough still writing?

A good book makes you want to read - an incredible book makes you think about what is happening in the book when you are not reading - as if it has a life of its own.Since I am a consummate reader, about a novel a week, I have quite stringent requirements. My top ten list is NOT easily entered. As a historical fiction fan - Morgan's Run made it into the top ten! I was smitten at first chapter. The blue print of the ship, the background of the characters, the detailed settings, allowed me to fall into the pages. I cannot say enough about the eloquent writing style, the historical information, and the sorry situations the characters find themselves in. IF you are a historical fiction buff, IF you enjoy reading about past lives, and IF you love reading, you will want to read Morgan's Run.

I really recommend this book to anyone interested in history of England and how Australia started out. I did not realize until I finished the book that it is based on a real person. The main character is a person that wound up in prison by being an honest and forthright fellow. From that point on, his life is ruled by those around him but how he handles what happens to him is remarkable. A true lesson in take what life gives you and make the most of. Take care of yourself.

not as intriguing as ''The First Man in Rome'' or ''The Grass Crown'' (my fav's of the author's)
Still, it gave me a realistic glimpse of the travails people went thru that were shipped to populate Australia.
Worth a read, but I couldn't get deeply involved with the story. The main character was well developed,
and his life story kept me reading to the end.
This is a light hearted adventure story of Richard Morgan who is transported from Great Britain to Australia.
It is an easy read with not too many characters, though it has some historical facts.
The book itself is quite long so if you are taking it on your 2 week holiday you may need to only take this and no other book in your luggage.

This is the first Colleen McCullen book that I have read but it will not be the last.
I have The Thorn Birds lined up to read next.
I give the book 4stars as a romantic/historical adventure.
