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 (183 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.
