    One thought on “Hawaii: A Novel

    1. Joyce on said:

      I guess I am in a minority in that I thought it was just an okay book. I made it through the entire book but it felt like the author was trying too hard to use fiction to expound upon the social ills of Hawaii and didn't include enough of the good about the people or this place that keeps both he and I here. He stereotypes everyone in the novel so badly that the characters all seem to fall flat. We needed to get to know the main character a lot better, and story lines didn't always interconnect [...]

    2. Paul on said:

      Wow what a book. Hawaii as it is today, described from various viewpoints. The author critically defines, skewers, and criticizes every stereotype perfectly.This book is definitely not on the chamber of commerces recommended reading list.
