Rosemarie | 3181 comments Hawaii has always been one of my favourite Michener novels.

Amy Rudolph | 162 comments I read Hawaii in conjunction with traveling there on vacation, and it really helped in terms of getting a feel for the state and its history and personality and culture. I realize it's fictionalized, but the overlap with reality was close enough for me to "get" what I was seeing and experiencing. I do agree with the reviews that it could have benefited from some more rigorous editing. I'm not sure it needed to be quite THAT long ....
