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

    A return to form for Captain Jack Sparrow

    4/5 Jaime (Reno, NV) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (Amazon Video) I really enjoyed the first Pirates film, it was a pirate movie in a time where no one was making pirate films. It had it's flaws but it was an enjoyable ride. I found the second movie to be fine, and I really disliked the third. On Stranger Tides is a return to form in a lot of ways. I don't know if Jack Sparrow should be the main character, as great as Depp is in the role it's a little overkill at times, but this movie goes back to the basics from the first film. It's a smaller, more contained story without all of the heavy handed drama the second and third films wallowed in. It's a silly, fun movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. Sometimes that's just fine. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 19, 2017

    A VERY well made 3D version of POTC! A MUST watch!,,

    First and foremost, I offer NO spoilers. Just a quick and honest opinion of the quality and watchability. Pirates OTC has got to be one of the coolest movies out there period! We as a family have enjoyed every single iteration of this series of movies! they just keep getting better! After each one we are like just praying that there will be another and this one in particular left us wanting more! The acting is hilarious, the screen play is exciting and we are taken on an adventure every time! Being able to enjoy this one in 3D was a real treat to the eyes and senses. Please keep in mind that not all 3D TV's are made the same and some do a much better job at rendering 3D than others. Luckily we have a very nice 65" 3D TV that does an excellent job at rendering the most perfect 3D image possible, and in turn we get to enjoy 3D as it is intended to be viewed! So if you have a good 3D TV I would suggest getting this in 3d and enjoying the treat it offers. Also I need to... 5/5 Jack W. Coleman jr.

    Not very good.

    3/5 Joanne Campbell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (DVD) I'm a "Pirates Of The Caribbean" fan and absolutely love the first three films where there's lots of excitement and Johnny Depp outdoes himself with his portrayal of CAPTION Jack Sparrow - excellent movies. But "On Stranger Tides" is a real letdown. Not only because the only other member of the original characters (other than Sparrow) is Barbosa, but because Jack isn't quite his old self. He wears a messy, battered and nearly blond wig that looks awful - and he's no where near as much fun as he was in the other films. I shudder to think what "Dead Men Tell No Lies" will be like when it comes out in July 2017. That will make 14 years of "Pirates Of The Caribbean". Might be time to put it to rest.

    5/5 Deric P - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Inspired By Pirates of the Caribbean Movies Cursed Aztec Coin Medallion Necklace Skull Necklace New Version (antique brass color) (Jewelry) Perfect replica of the Pirate gold from the first Pirates movie. I got the brass coloring of it, looks more authentic and real. The Cave map of "Isla de Muerta" is on the back of the coin. I did spray a bit of clear lacquer to seal it so it did not turn when it lays on my upper chest green. Defiantly recommended this if you love Pirates of the Caribbean.

    I think they learned from those reviews because the map came in a very sterdy Amazon box and was in great shape upon arrival

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Caribbean Classic [Laminated] (National Geographic Reference Map) (Map) There were some reviews about how the map was shipped in a cheap card board box and ended up squished.

    2/5 AnnMarie Reich - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Caribbean Classic [Laminated] (National Geographic Reference Map) (Map) The map itself is amazing and the quality I'd expect from National Geographic. Unfortunately, the map was packaged without a strong cardboard tube so was flattened with creases in the map every 4 inches or so. The map has been hung for over 1 month and it still has creases. It baffles as to why this can't be packaged like nearly all posters/maps are packaged today. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 13, 2014

This review is from: Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Audio CD) Geoff Zanelli creates a suitable installment in the soundtrack collection for the Pirates films. While unique in some aspects, it is true to the sounds already laid out by Badelt (1) and Zimmer (2,3, and 4). The relationship with Zimmer shows through in the pacing and overall feel of the album. All the familiar themes are accounted for, but presented in some different and intriguing ways. Recommended for fans of the previous soundtracks.
