If there were 8 stars to show my approval, it still wouldn't be enough. John Jakes' riveting manner of telling this story about a young immigrant, Pauli Kroner, coming to America from Germany and why it was necessary is a fascinating journey. This is almost 1200 pages of John Jakes at his usual excellent storytelling. If you like stories which go on for more than one generation, this is for you. You will live right with Pauli and experience what he experienced as he moved from penniless immigrant to a force to be reconned with in the "moving picture" industry.
From The New York Times Book Review: "Pick up Homaland and read a couple of chapters and you'll very soon discover why John Jakes sells a lot of books. He is, quite simply, a master of the ancient art of storytelling." Also there is so much history in this book, it's almost, if not, an historical novel. Be prepared for a grand ride and many nights of reading.
