Exodus is told in flowing standard American English, often in short single-sentence paragraphs. Author Leon Uris is described in the "About the Author" note as a screenwriter and newspaper correspondent turned novelist. He amasses an enormous quantity of historical facts and weaves them into a moving, compelling, even epic story of a persecuted people fighting to live in freedom among the nations of the world, many of which have overtly or covertly repressed, oppressed, persecuted or prosecuted them.
