Publisher's Summary

James A. Michener, the master of historical fiction, revisits the scenes of his first great work, Tales of the South Pacific: the Pulitzer Prize winner that brought him international acclaim. In this sequel collection, Michener once again evokes the magic of the extraordinary isles in the Pacific - from Fiji and Guadalcanal to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea - through stories that burst with adventure, charm, and local color. For Michener's many fans around the globe, Return to Paradise is a precious second look at a land of enchantment by one of the most gifted storytellers of the 20th century.

Critic Reviews

"A brilliant book and a worthy successor to Tales of the South Pacific." ( The Atlanta Constitution)
"This is a book that should be read by everyone.... All who have seen the South Pacific will find on every page the odors of frangipani, copra, blood, and beer." ( The New York Times)
"There's drama and pathos and adventure and humanity...and a very high degree of excellence. Michener can write." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Disappointed

Struggled to finish. Dry material. Even drier narration. If you are interested in Michener's experience in the South Pacific reading Tales of the South Pacific will be more rewarding.

Not what I expected

A bunch of short stories, good ones, and mostly interesting, but not the usual Michener book. Still good. Some stories more interesting an fun to listen to than others. Worth the listen.
