I just finished reading this book and I feel a duty to warn others. Michener is a great author but this is not even a good book.It is almost certainly biographical and as such self indulgent tripe. The author speaks about a novel being a pot in which everything is tossed and that is the feel. I suspect he took his notes from all his formative years and attempted to distill them in one work. If he had not just won a Pulitzer for Tales of the South Pacific I doubt this would ever of made it past an editors desk.

If you love Michener as I love Orwell it may be worth while to read this and see him develop as a writer other wise be warned.
