I read this excellent novel on my phone and loved having it available in this small format. I was struck by the way we have repeated history of racial bias and over and over made assumptions about the intelligence of other peoples. Will this pattern never end?
This novel is just too long. I cannot devote the amount of time necessary to read from cover to cover ... even though I enjoyed Michener in my younger years.
A perfect read for anyone on a long vacation with plenty of beach or pool time. Excellent historic overview of the islands.
Michener not only opens up history, but observes relationships, especially racial relationships, revealing not merely bigotry, but the essential humanity of even the bigots.
Another great Michener historical novel.
