I actually got through most of that book. Never finished it though. Will have to pick it up again some day.

Michener books are just sooooo long...and I have a lot of other things left on my Goodreads to-read list.

Some like Hawaii and Alaska, are great for an escape from reality, waiting at a hospital or airport.

Caribbean is just brutal, and no one has a happy ending. Indians, Pirates, and Rastas were cool though.

My favorite is The Source, about Isreal. It was really hopeful, but was written before the 7 days war.

Edward Rutherford is unnecessarily perverted, at times.
