Exquisite photos of marine life, the tallest mountain in the world, delicate double rainbows and unthinkable lava sculptures shaped by red-hot magma, a Japanese tea house and rainforest orchids make you feel like you’re there, smelling the plumeria flowers and tasting the Kona coffee and local beer.
Unlike the traditional travelogue, in this compelling novel you get the inside stories but also an experience of how much a person can grow through travel. If travel is the best form of education, travel fiction may be the best form of “journey literature.” Planning a vacation to Hawai’i? Travel like a local. Buy this book and read it beforehand. Not planning a vacation? Harris’s book may be the next best thing.
- A unique, fun plot with detailed characters and classical twists.
- Surprisingly immersive education about the Hawaiian islands and culture. You'll come away having learned mythology, history, and specific locations that only a shrewd local could have shared with you. This is much deeper, more interesting stuff than you'd pick up as a tourist, especially as it focuses on the oft-neglected "Big Island" of Hawaii.
- Length is perfect for the genre; a fast read that dispels any excuses for not diving right in, and short enough that it does not get tiresome while still wrapping up the story cleanly.
- Great full-color photography integrated contextually into the narrative. The author explains that the photos were taken especially for the story, which to me is an extremely sincere concept which shows a lot of personal devotion to the project.
For anyone interested in a focused travel/mystery story about beautiful Hawaii, it's definitely worth a few hours of your time (and at this price point represents a real value). Great airplane book.
