Herman Melville "Typee"

Recently finished the book by Herman Melville Typee. It was his first book but nevertheless the one that won him his greatest lifetime fame. Typee is no Moby-Dick but it is a classic and not just a children’s classic. It is also an adventure. One reads Typee and life suddenly shows a new vista … adventure is possible: Eden is real!
The book is a narrative of a four-month sojourn among primitive South Sea Islanders. In it Melville combines his own extraordinary personal experiences with later intensive research to produce a vivid and imaginative work. The Polynesian tribal life is shown very vividly in its exotic fascination.
So if you want to share this experience, read Typee!
