  1. When Centennial first aired as a twenty hour TV series in the 1980 s I was 100% mesmerizedtotally captivated The book is no exception Ok truthfully, clocking in at 1,068 pages it may get a bit tiresome towards the end but stilla sweeping embodiment of place and space in timein this case, the American westColorado s Front Range.Beginning with the indigenous Native Americans and fur trappers Pasquinel and McKeag we eventually follow western migration with Levi Zendt the Indian Wars homesteaders ca [...]


  2. Michener is known for historical fiction and well researched facts and background This is a stunning saga covering a controversial period in our history The story is told from multiple points of view, with no political overtones or overt bias This is a story of the human condition, the human spirit good and bad When you read a Michener book, you are both entertained and educated but importantly you are stimulated and make to think This book was written in the 1970 s but it is as relevant today a [...]


  3. Centennial is a vast sprawling epic about an area northeast of Denver It starts before human history and carries on until 1976 Once human beings inhabit the area various individuals and their offspring become entwinned in tis ongoing history I completely enjoyed the novel, with the exception of the ending, of which I will not specifically detail.I have been reading James Michener novels in the order of their publication Of the ones I have so far read, this one reminds me in format of Hawaii whic [...]


  4. I have read most of Michener s books, and because there are so many I often use him as my fall back author when I am short of something to read Imagine my delight when I received Centennial and was immediately infatuated with its content It isn t a book you have to concentrate on reading Instead every paragraph floats off the page and is simultaneously absorbed into your consciousness I especially enjoyed the beginning description of the formation of the earth in that area and his description of [...]


  5. I love this author and his writing This is my 2nd time reading this, decades between There is also a good dvd, purchased that too.He writes so beautifully, starts at the beginning of time, I love that, and up to present day, not this present day but at time of writing I have read most of his books, I wish he had lived forever


  6. Another book read fifty years ago Many friends tell me Centennial is the best book they have read Sometimes it is Mine too The characters are generously portrayed, if sometimes unlovely The country builds in your mind and your soul The stories are uplifting, mostly, of men who triumph through energy and determination I love all of his books, his writing, his enormous sense of history that leads to a picture that builds the under story of today so that we understand how we came to be us, now, and [...]


  7. Let me preface my comments by saying that Michener is my all time favorite author That being said I didn t enjoy this book as much as I ve enjoyed some of his others The subject matter was fascinating as usual but the read felt disjointed, mostly towards the end I would still recommend this book The history of Colorado is violent and heartbreaking but also uplifting at the same time The characters throughout most of the book, as usual, are fascinating and at some points endearing I enjoyed readi [...]


  8. James Michener is the quintessential american story teller The difference between the stories that Michener tells and other great story tellers tell is the depth of his stories When you read Centennial you don t just brush the surface about a town, but he takes you back to when the land was being created He gives you geology, anthropology, biology, botany and histroy, all wrapped up in a great story Michener s books are not the stuff of short reads, but they are the stuff of great reads You will [...]


  9. This was a fascinating emersion into life in Colorado over several centuries, starting before the arrival of humans Who would have guessed that there were giant sloths roaming around there This is an interesting, uplifting and heart breaking novel that charts are an all to real story about the development of the region, the varied characters and incidents in the history of this part of the US.


  10. Centennial is a most ambitious work and an impressive one, too It was written, of course, to mark an important occasion and despite its very considerable merits, it does have that mark of a book conscious of its own lofty purpose The framework the professor engaged by an important New York magazine seems to me increasingly to become a dead convention It also seems quite unnecessary to have this artificial holding device The links between the episodes are self explanatory and in any case bound by [...]
