    1 thought on “Tiare in Bloom: A Novel”

    1. I think Tiare in Bloom is the best of the three books. What a great message in this story. It's about love, caring, being responsible and how important it is to listen to those you love.I love the character of Matarena. She is lucky to have such wonderful women in her life. I think with out them, she'd of killed Pito long ago. It can't be easy to love a guy like Pito. He is such an insensitive macho jerk, but finally he comes around to being the father and husband he was meant to be, with a litt [...]

    2. This is even better than the last one. You see Vaite become really polished as a comedic author. Pito and Matarena are now GRANDPARENTS and Pito is overwhelmingly in love with his new granddaughter. Vaite hits her full stride here in another charmer. Her writing style is one of those complex "looks simple but isn't" and she has a wonderful sense of voice. It's stuck with me in a good way for the last few days, and I think I may need to buy the trilogy to have on my shelf for when I need a feel-g [...]

    3. Light and fluffy. It was by no means an original story; woman does all the work, man realizes he's lazy, yada yada. I wouldn't recommend it, but I got through it without much effort.

    4. Celestine Vaite is so gifted! Her style of writing is easy to follow, especially as she had to do a lot of translating to accurately portray the way in which things would be discussed in the islands. This is the third and final part to her three-part series, and it is a must read for pacific islanders especially! You'll laugh your way through the pages as comment after comment remind you of your own upbringing.

    5. How much did I enjoy this book? THIS MUCH. Set in Tahiti, it is full of lovable characters, practical wisdom and infused with the atmosphere of the island. I've never read anything set there before, and will be seeking out other books from this author (I understand this is her 3rd).

    6. Another great book. I loved it! I love the escape back to island life and Materena Mahi will go down as one of my very favorite characters.

    7. I found the story of Materna and Pito to be very charming. It was a easy, light read and quick to finish. When I pick up this book, I was unaware that it was apart of a series but that was not a problem.

    8. J'aime ce livre grand comme ça. "Tiare" est le troisième tome de la série Materena, de l'auteure australo-tahitienne Célestine Hitiura Vaite. Si, dans les premiers tomes, l'auteure avait principalement évoqué des figures féminines, à travers l'évolution du personnage de Materena, femme de ménage professionnelle, et des femmes de son entourage, dans "l'Arbre à pain", puis en explorant les relations mère-fille avec le personnage de la fille de Materena, Leilani, c'est à présent l'hom [...]

    9. This was a nice fun chick-lit type of book Thaitian style. Often chick-lit can get a bit too serious, but this covered drama in a way that was enjoyable to read.The story is the 2 or 3rd in a series but I read it in isolation (library didn't have the others) and I found it fine (but maybe I've spoiled the first books?). It was also from a male perspective as well as the female which always seems to be a bit of a novelty in these types of books.My mother in law is Cook Islander and I am thinking [...]

    10. Pito's redemption in this book actually brought tears to my eyes, and I am glad Viate showed he had a good after all. When I was 13 and many people I knew were fascinated with MTV, I was obsessed with the South Pacific. Seriously, one day I have to travel to Tahiti because I am enamored with the descriptions of what I have read and seen on video, and Viate writes of the people with such warmth. I love the Polynesian philosophy of life in general, and the Tahitian one in particular, so this book [...]

    11. 2009 bookcrossing commentsThis is the next few years ongoing after the book Frangipani. It's just like a family saga really - the usual fights and make up, family problems, etc etc. So it's nothing new in that respect. But the characters are what make this book and keep you hooked. It's an easy, relaxed kind of writing that makes you feel like you're visiting your best friend. Kind of the same effect as you get with the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency. You just want to escape to Taihiti.

    12. This is what I expect from a novel, to open up new horizens, new doors. I have been exposed to a new environment, new people, new realities. I can say with assurance that I have feeled the complexities of the inner self of two middle age parents and have lived their day to day life. The story is engaging but the writting is not elaborated enough and deep. Overal, easy and fun to read.

    13. i like it was light n sweet with humour thrown in between. talked a great deal about tahitian way of lifeench-tahitian offspringsifting gender resposibilities all done beautifully with a delicate touch of a woman but even the men are a wee bit feminine in this novelough really likeable and that adds to its charmry readable

    14. this story will make you feel good. i read way too much serious stuff. i wish this author wrote one novel for every year. that way i could constantly read about her tahitian sagas that feel wonderful to experience. so much heart in her writing, i think she is currently my favorite author. start with breadfruit before this book. there is a lot of joy and humor/survival in all her novels.

    15. Simply love this hilarious, passionate, hot series flavoured with humour in the middle of the tropical island of Tahiti. Celestine Vaite has become one of my favourite authors with her heart-warming story telling. Her series will bring me joy through winter :). I've got nothing negative to say, simply BUENO.

    16. I loved this book and the others in the series. They remind me that the human experience is similar no matter what the setting. I really enjoy the writing, kind of quirky and blunt but warm and funny. This isn't extremely deep literature but really enjoyable reading. I'm anxiously awaiting another book from Celestine Hitiura Vaite!

    17. Definitely in the vein of No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Tiare is an amusing and delightful tale about a Tahitian family and is an easy, enjoyable read. It is the second book in the Materena Mahi series by Celestine Hitiura Vaite, but not having read the first one did not detract at all from this story. You'll read this with a smile on your face.

    18. this trilogy is published all topsy-turvey and out of sequence in the u.s but this book (the third in u.s. sequence, the second in over-seas publications) was very good. it was a quick read and told largely from a male perspective which was interesting given the female voice in the first two.

    19. just started reading. Light-weight diversion, social drama-dy based in Tahiti. French influence in language is interesting, can relate to culture from my upbringing, and very similar to Hawaiian experience. Good beach book.

    20. This book really had me - I get so attached to these characters! I also love all of the language stuff, so it sucks me right in.

    21. A really nice book - like the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. Didn't realize that it is the third in a series, but it was a good stand alone book as well.

    22. Slimink rentalMade no journal entries for this book, but enjoyed it. Similar to No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency in style. Engaging, quirky, slightly repetitious.

    23. Vaite said herself that this was the most enjoyable of her series to write, and it read that way. The characters seemed more alive and vibrant. I loved watching Pito's transformation.
