While Hawaii carries an all encompassing viewpoint, Shark Dialogues, by Kiana Davenportm is a debut novel that is spellbinding in its imagery and ancient myths. It is a stunningly sensual and epic novel of a Polynesian Hawaiian family that centers on the awe-inspiring matriarch, Pono, a prophet gifted with magic powers and her four estranged, mixed-marriage granddaughters. I think Pono is one of the most powerful and magical characters in modern day fiction. Ms. Davenport manages to maneuver the plot from Hawaiian rain forests to downtown Manhattan, and creates a cast of characters too powerful to describe. I have recommended this book multiple times and will continue to sing it's praises.

These two gigantic and enchanting books may help you feel and experience Hawaii as never before, and will enrapture you in the gorgeous and sensual island paradise. Enjoy these marvelous books about one of our most beautiful states.

You might also enjoy the 1966 movie, Hawaii, starring Julie Andrews, Max von Sydow and Richard Harris.
