San Piedro Island, north of Puget Sound, is a place so isolated that no one who lives there can afford to make enemies. But in 1954 a local fisherman is found suspiciously drowned, and a Japanese American named Kabuo Miyamoto is charged with his murder. In the course of the ensuing trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than a man's guilt. For on San Pedro, memory grows as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries--memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and the Japanese girl who grew up to become Kabuo's wife; memories of land desired, paid for, and lost. Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbors watched. Gripping, tragic, and densely atmospheric, Snow Falling on Cedars is a masterpiece of suspense-- one that leaves us shaken and changed.

I just finished the book this evening. I enjoyed reading it; it was a great story.
But still my feelings about this book are mixed somehow... I liked some parts of it, while there were other parts I didn`t like too much.

The book will be released in a few days, for the May Flower Challenge

Found this in the shop when I was out buying coffee and bread this morning (that I was out walking this morning and went to exactly this shop (which is my closest, but not my regular shop) was no coincidence after recieving release alerts yesterday. Will put it in my pile and hopefully read it during the summer.

Received from einarfa, who is downsizing his bookhoard due to moving. Am unsure about this, have a feeling it's been hyped too much, but will give it a try and attempt to keep an open mind.

I should have read this, but it seems to not be happening. It's time to let it travel, so I'll bring it to a meetup this afternoon.
