Troublesome mesa, colorado. It is the apparatus that forms us and rules us. Aye, there was always someone out there, a faceless king and queen in a chilled haze, taunting.

Written by Leon Uris. Narrated by Stephen Lang. Spanning the decades from World War II to the 2008 presidential campaign, A God in Ruins is the unforgettable story of Quinn Patrick O'Connell, an honest, principled, and courageous man on the brink of becoming the second Irish Catholic President of the United States. In an era morally unmoored, rife with armed separatists and fundamentalist zealotry, Quinn, the last great liberal of the Rocky Mountains, emerges as America's hope to reclaim its great past and its promises of the future.

A God in Ruins, the ninth novel by Kate Atkinson, was published in 2015. The main character, Teddy Todd is the younger brother of Ursula Todd, the protagonist in Atkinson's 2013 novel, Life After Life. Atkinson calls it the "companion piece" rather than a sequel to the earlier novel. The first book spans half a century, including World War II; the second is set entirely within it. It won the Costa Book Award for Novel in 2015.

It would not have been that bombastic an event, except that I am running for the presidency of the United States. The 2008 election is less than a week away.

So I have to wonder who actually wrote this book, because the writing was awful. I was almost 300 hundred pages into this book before the various stories and characters started to come together and make sense.

Master storyteller and international bestselling author of Redemption, Trinity, and Exodus, Leon Uris once again brilliantly interweaves historical fact with gripping fiction in this powerful novel of politics, family, intrigue, love, and the passions that rule human lives.

Spanning the decades from World War II to the 2008 presidential campaign, A God in Ruins is the unforgettable story of Quinn Patrick O'Connell, an honest, principled, and courageous man on the brink of becoming the second Irish Catholic President of the United States. In an era morally unmoored, rife with armed separatists and fundamentalist zealotry, Quinn, the last great liberal of the Rocky Mountains, emerges as America's hope to reclaim its great past and its promises of the future. But Quinn is a man with an explosive secret that can shatter his political ambitions and threaten his life--a secret buried for over a half century that even he does not know....

Returning home at the end of World War II a decorated and wounded hero, Daniel Timothy O'Connell had moved his young wife, Siobhan, from the crowded streets of Brooklyn to the golden mountains of Colorado. Building a successful life as cattle ranchers, Daniel and Siobhan had everything they wanted--except a child. Desperate, they turned to the Church and adopted a beautiful three-year-old of mysterious parentage, a charming little boy they named Quinn Patrick.

In riveting prose, Leon Uris unfolds Quinn's life as he matures from a restless youth into a brave Marine undertaking a deadly undercover mission, and finally, into an earnest, intelligent, and thoughtful leader willing take on the most vicious and malevolently destructive forces threatening the country. Here, too, are the two beautiful women who have always loved him--Greer, the lover driven by ambition and passion, and Rita, the sensuous, adoring daughter of his friend and mentor, painter and philosopher Reynaldo Maldonado.

Through the years Quinn has made some powerful enemies who are determined to destroy him, including presidential incumbent Thornton Tomtree. A conservative computer mogul who built an electronic empire out of his father's Rhode Island junkyard, Tomtree is a right-wing pragmatist who will court the most dangerous and deadly elements of society and risk America s safety to achieve his own ambitions.

From America's victorious past to its shadowed future, from the grandeur of Colorado's mountains to the enclaves of private militias hidden deep in the canyons of the Southwest's Four Corners, A God in Ruins races to a powerful, unforgettable conclusion. A sweeping novel of a man, a life, and a nation, it vividly brings to life memorable characters that will indelibly touch the heart and mind and illuminates the major crisis facing America at the dawn of a new millennium.

Hǻrley Quinn
This book started out quite well. The actual writing is typical Uris - that is to say excellent. However frankly the high intensity political thrust turned me off. Too bad because it could have been great but missed the mark. I have thoroughly enjoyed many of his other books and was dissapointed in his handling of this one.
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
I didn't think highly of this Uris book. It seemed like a forecast of what you Americans are experiencing with Trump
Funny duck
Uris demonstrates in this novel that, while he is excellent at weaving a human story around historical events, he is unable to fashion a believable story without such a setting. His lack of knowledge concerning computer technology and firearms (the issues of his two antagonists) renders this book as grossly unreal. Uris is definitely not cut out to write science-fiction. If they offered the choice of less than 1 star, this book would have gotten it. No other author has ever disappointed me this thoroughly.

I've been a fan of Uris for some time; my favorite is Armageddon. This book is disorganized and unbelievable, though not without some good moments. It needs an editor and some serious tightening.
Brightfury
I love all of Leon Uris' books, but this one is my all-time favorite. Very thought-provoking and interesting.
Lightbinder
good book

Leon Uris always developed interesting characters and wove their stories together resulting in a very interesting book. Very happy I saw this book listed for my Amazon Fire.
Another excellent novel (and quite close to today's politics) from Leon Uris.
Highly recommend!
