The young Marine who falls madly in love with a beautiful Tonkinese girl. Nurse Nellie and her French planter, Emile De Becque. The soldiers, sailors, and nurses playing at war and waiting for love in a tropic paradise.

Review:
"Romantic, nostalgic, tragic--call it what you will--this book seems to me the finest piece of fiction to come out of the South Pacific War."

P. J. Searles, New York Herald Tribune Book Review, 02/02/1947

Review:
"These 'Tales of the South Pacific' are magnificently entertaining. But they are more than that. Mr. Michener is an acute observer of human character, an adroit literary artist, a man with a philosophy of life which makes him tolerant of many human weaknesses, but not of all. He is certainly one of the ablest and one of the most original writers to appear on the American literary scene in a long time."

Orville Prescott, Yale Review, Spring 1947
