Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson

Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson: This is not an exciting, thrill-a-minute, real page-turner type of book. It is, in a word, interesting. I like both strawberries and winter, so I enjoyed much of the description. The characters, while realistically portrayed, did not evoke much sympathy in me, and while I generally understand why the reporter was given so much backstory, it did not really strike me as all that relevant. So if the post-WWII world of Japanese Americans in a remote island off the coast of Washington state interests you, you may like this book. If not, you would probably be bored to tears. [Note: I have not seen the movie.]
