About this book
In this acclaimed classic novel, James A. Michener sweeps readers off to the Caribbean, bringing to life the eternal allure and tumultuous history of this glittering string of islands. From the 1310 conquest of the Arawaks by cannibals to the decline of the Mayan empire, from Columbus’s arrival to buccaneer Henry Morgan’s notorious reign, from the bloody slave revolt on Haiti to the rise of Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Caribbean packs seven hundred dramatic years into a tale teeming with revolution and romance, authentic characters and thunderous destinies. Through absorbing, magnificent prose, Michener captures the essence of the islands in all of their awe-inspiring scope and wonder. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii.   Praise for Caribbean   “Michener is a master.”—Boston Herald   “A grand epic . . . [James A. Michener] sympathizes with the struggles of the region’s most oppressed, and succeeds in presenting the Caribbean in its rich diversity.”—The Plain Dealer   “Remarkable and praiseworthy . . . utterly engaging.”—The Washington Post Book World   “Even American tourists familiar with some of the serene islands will find themselves enlightened. . . . In Caribbean, there appears to be a strong aura of truth behind the storytelling.”—The New York Times

    Caribbean: A Novel

    Book (Dial Press Trade Paperback)

    Rating (179 reviews):
    (4.1/5)
    Dial Press Trade Paperback

    A book of epic proportions - literally!

    4/5 Betti Trapp - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean (Mass Market Paperback) Reader beware - 800 plus pages, so this is no book for story time. Extremely prolific, James A. Michener writes as only he can write about the Caribbean, that vast expanse of ocean surrounded by Cuba, Puerto Rico and the extensive small islands smattered across the seascape. This is a powerful history of these islands, and James Michener takes us from the 1300s when a peaceful tribe of Arawaks are horribly destroyed all the way to Castro's Cuba. This is the sort of book one would do better learning about this area from, as the author weaves plot upon plot into a brilliantly masterminded historical novel. You will learn more from this book about the Caribbean Sea and its islands than any history or geography class could give you, and you will have more fun doing it! I gave it four stars simply because with a book this size, there was bound to be some dreadfully boring parts, and there were. If it were a bit shorter in length it would lack nothing but a Pulitzer.

    excellent, in-depth .. top-notch michener

    If you have read and like michener, this is a classic (my personal favorite). If you have not, classic michener means that he takes a very in-depth, well researched area and wraps a novel around it. In Carribean, he looks at the evolution from the Mayan times to the modern, covering the cultures, the facts and the myths. What makes it fun is the way he wraps his exhaustive research of the facts into the regions myths and a set of characters. This makes the novels fun and interesting, because even though the people are ficticious, one identifies more with the stories of people than a textbook approach to the facts.The chapters, dealing with different historical periods, focus on various sub-regions as they wane and wax in power and importance. It particularly appealed to my interest in history and frankly may be tiresome to those who do not have the same passion for history (ie, if you don't like historical accounts, you may not like this book!)Oh, yes,... 5/5 Jason Holloway (San Francisco, Califoria) - See all my reviews, February 17, 2000

    You have to take it in context.

    A lot of negative reviews focus on 3 chapters that come right in a row - about All Saints the made up island, the illegal immigrant from Trinidad and the negatively portrayed Rasta man specifically.I will first say that the first 3/4 of the book are fantastic, rich and exciting tales of Mayan Indians, pirates, rum-runners, buccaneers, bloody revolution and general debauchery that keeps you burning through pages. Then we hit a supposed dead spot as we skip from the late 1890s to 1938.Michener used the same literary device here in Caribbean he used 7 years earlier in his novel Space, despite people complaining because they didn't understand. In Space, Michener replaces Nebraska's exact borders with a state called Freemont, after John Frémont the French-American explorer and proponent of "manifest destiny" - carrying that idea that the US must expand till there's no more room left into outer space as well. In Caribbean, he replaces Saint Lucia with the... 4/5 Wa'el (Normal, Illinois, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean (Mass Market Paperback) A lot of negative reviews focus on 3 chapters that come right in a row - about All Saints the made up island, the illegal immigrant from Trinidad and the negatively portrayed Rasta man specifically.I will first say that the first 3/4 of the book are fantastic, rich and exciting tales of Mayan Indians, pirates, rum-runners, buccaneers, bloody revolution and general debauchery that keeps you burning through pages.

    A Disappointment

    3/5 SabreSailor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Caribbean (Paperback) I am a very big fan of the DK Eyewitness series. I have used them all over the world and think they are superb.The Caribbean version was a disappointment. Perhaps it is that it is trying to cover such a large and diverse area, but I found so many sights totally missing.

    DK Guides are The Best of All Guides

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Caribbean (Paperback) As an experienced traveler of many world destinations, I love DK best of all travel guides as they give me great information on the culture and history of the places I go and highlight sites and locations I might otherwise miss. Other guides seem more full of touristy shopping tips; fine for those with little or no interest in the identity and background of a location. This guide was a great help in planning excursions, and when not to, from a cruise that went to 12 different islands.

    Great Overall Caribbean Travel guide

    5/5 SuperflyCabral (Garden City, KS) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Caribbean (Paperback) Wonderful pictures and maps. I was looking for a travel book about Jamaica. DK Eyewitness Travel Guides have never let me down.....so instead of just Jamaica I decided to get this Caribbean guide. SO GLAD I DID. I now have plenty of other places on my list to travel to next! As far as the Jamaica portion in the book, I did get what I was looking for.

    (3.5/5)

    John Payne & Sir Cedric Hardwick two of the best actors you hardly hear about!!!!

    This movie played well all the way through. I rate this movie at 5 stars because I love pirate films & this is a very unique one! I have always enjoyed John Payne's acting as well as Sir Cedric Hardwick both hugely underrated actors that never fail to deliver!!!! A lot of the outside sets are shot indoors but are beautiful none the less! The costumes are opulent representing the wealth these piratical figures had gained an are period correct. The whole storyline & plot twists are well written and totally believable! In the opening seen we see Sir Cedric Hardwick incorporate the use of placing a corpse over the treasure in a shallow grave, a well known tactic used by the pirates to discourage anyone from digging further & discovering the treasure! And yes that is a real Water Moccasin Or Cotton Mouth which ever you prefer that John Payne crushes under heel which ultimately gives away his hiding place. Although this is a pirate film John Payne plays a American settler kidnapped and... 5/5 Leo Hott - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean (Amazon Video) This movie played well all the way through.

    Finally. A Convincing Prirate Movie.

    5/5 De witte leeuw. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Caribbean (Amazon Video) I had reservations about viewing an old movie like this from 1952, but I found it surprisingly well-done. It was not your usual "swashbuckler" so often seen in that era. The plot was extremely good, the acting convincing, the period clothing and arms exact, and the ships magnificent. Cedric Hardwicke did a tour de force as the betrayed pirate captain out on a mission of revenge against his former partner who was holed up in his tropical island fortress. This movie was so good in fact that I dearly wanted to purchase a copy of it on DVD and found that it doesn't exist in Region 1 format. Why? I do not know, because it would sell in the USA very well. Nevertheless, if you can, don't let this one get by you unseen. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2014

    5/5 Cindy M - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean By Cruise Ship: The Complete Guide To Cruising The Caribbean (Paperback) This book is packed with information, from history to the cruise routes, to the various cruise lines that sail the Caribbean seas. I picked up a copy on a cruise ship, expecting it to be a promotional book by the cruise line, but instead found a comprehensive book filled with so much information that I'm still reading through it, and studying the maps included, to determine our next destination. I've referred to it over and over again.See her other cruise books - Alaska, Hawaii, the Mediterranean, and more...if you're interested in learning as much as you about cruise vacations, because I haven't found anything packed with more information.Great price, for so much information (I also love the retro looking artwork on the cover).
