Poland was one of several Michener historical novels I read in the late 70s and early 80s, when it seemed everybody else was doing the same I rarely hear him mentioned these days and wonder why.I hadn t intended to read it again now, but a copy fell into my lap, and after opening it idly I was hooked.Large chunks of the story had stayed with me over the years I remembered Michener s accounts of the invasions by Tatars and Swedes, and the unspeakable things those people did wonder why modern d Poland was one of several Michener histo
I like James Michener a lot That said, it s obvious that he s not for everybody and in fact, I would argue that most people are not reading James Michener correctly And before you say, You shouldn t need to be told how to read something in order to be able to read it, I would say this people should have some understanding of say, the Bible, or the Qur an, or of Nietzche, or Plato, or Buddhist Sutras before you start engaging with them Or if you re trying to argue that that s intense philos I like James Michener a lot That said, it s obvious that he s not for everybody and in fact, I would argue that most people are not reading James Michener correctly And before you say, You shouldn t need to be told how to read something in order to be able to read it, I would say this people should have some understanding of say, the Bible, or the Qur an, or of Nietzche, or Plato, or Buddhist Sutras before you start engaging with them Or if you re trying to argue that that s intense philosophy, not fictional novels, well you have a selection to choose from, because we do the same with Shakespeare s plays, with Dickens novels, etc So I d argue that a primer is necessary for those who are not familiar with the novels of James Michener Michener has been called the King of beach reading, which I find mysterious because his books are massive and if you are reading a hard cover, first

First Michener I ve read Interesting setting and history, wide in scope Covers a lot of ground. Poland is written with all the elegance of a bloated instruction manual If you enjoy the absence of subtext, disastrously bad sentences, and descriptions that make a list of technical specifications read like poetry, you will love Michener s writing This ain t Zadie Smith, folks In fact, it s probably one of the worst written books I ve ever slogged through.Yet I didn t hate this book Because while reading page after page was like walking through a post apocalyptic city in a movie, where Poland is writt

After reading this book one of the few books I bother owning storing on my shelf , I read the rest of Michener s historical novels It s great the way he weaves history of whatever region he s writing about into the lives of people in that region through the ages And it doesn t go too deeply into the mumbo jumbo lovey stuff like a la Days of Our Lives but just the basic way of life from each generation, and how it affects future generations.This style also got me hoocked on Edward Ru After reading this book one of the few books I bother owning storing on my shelf , I read the rest of Michener s historical novels It s great the way he weaves history of whatever region he s writing about into the lives of people in that region through the ages And it doesn t go too deeply into the mumbo jumbo lovey stuff like a la Days of Our Lives but just the basic way of life from each generation, and how it aff
