Snow Falling on Cedars
Snow Falling on Cedars | David Guterson
In 1954 a fisherman is found dead in the nets of his boat, and a local Japanese-American man is charged with his murder. In the course of his trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than one man's guilt. For on San Piedro, memories grow as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries - memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and a Japanese girl; 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 neighbours watched.

Wow. This book is brilliantly written, provokingly real and stunning in its insight into the drama of the human condition. Captures the chaotic nature of this life. The last lines are poignant and beautiful. Would have to be one of my favourite books. I read this because I was travelling to this part of the world. So thankful for the splendour of meeting the characters in the story along with experiencing the beauty of this part of our world.

This is a super slow burn, but I'm so glad I stuck it out. Murder mystery, courtroom drama, romance, war story, historical fiction...a little bit of everything in this story that takes place on a small island in Puget Sound. Loved it.

Finally starting to read this one! Woman who works at the library went searching for it for 10 minutes, because apparently nobody requested it in a while, and there is a special place where they keep those books that are also not in a very good condition. I was more than happy to save it from oblivion and as long as there are no pages missing I'm good😁📚📓📘📖 #booktoscreen #libraryhaul #library #oldbooks #oblivion #map #mapsoflitsy

#BookToScreen

MinDea I enjoyed this book, but had trouble sifting through all the words 😆😆 I loved reading about the history of the Japanese-Americans and the PNW. I knew it was horrible, but this was definitely a reminder how awful they were treated. What did you all think of Ishmael? He bothered me. I thought he was a bit obsessive and a bit of a creeper! Did you think Kabuo was guilty at the beginning? Did anyone watch the movie? 2y
Cinfhen I did not watch the movie...thoughts?? I never thought Kabuo was guilty and I thought his lawyer was brilliant. It took me a long time to get into this story but I‘m glad I stayed with it. I felt sorry for Ishmael, he was definitely a victim of circumstance just like Kabuo & Hatsue. I was shocked/ disgusted to learn about the treatment of Japanese Americans ~ shameful!! 2y
MinDea @Cinfhen the movie was pretty close to the book. Pretty slow though, so not sure I'd recommend. I do see that Ishmael was a victim of the times (not being allowed to be with her because of their race). This definitely made me want to read more about Japanese-American treatment by our government and people. It is a sad piece of our history. 2y

Cinfhen Was Ethan Hawke believable as Ishmael? I really liked how developed all of the secondary characters were...I strongly disliked Carl‘s mom, but I‘m sure she was a very authentic portrait of US citizens during that time 2y
Cinfhen Look as my review post, a bunch of Littens suggested other books that tackle this time in history 2y
MinDea Oh nice thanks @Cinfhen! I thought he was decent as Ishmael. I did too. The wife (can't remember her name) what a horrible woman! Yes, Carl's mom. Yes, sadly there are people like that today. Sad. 2y

I will admit it took 8 chapters for me to connect with this novel but once I did I didn‘t want to stop reading. It‘s part courtroom drama, part love story, part coming of age, part WWII US history and 100 percent beautifully written. It‘s a full bodied story that gets to the heart of so many issues/ emotions. So glad I stuck with this #booktoscreen read.

Mehso-so

Well, this book hooked me (like you said it would @Cinfhen in Chapter 7), couldn't put it down. I liked the story, and loved learning about some of the Japanese-American history, however David Guterson likes to ramble. There were so many descriptions and back stories that weren't necessary. He wove a beautiful story, but it bogged down the book for me. Had he been less verbose I think this would have been a pick.

Cinfhen That‘s what I‘m thinking, hoping too...I see the potential @MinDea just need to find the hook.... 2y
Smrloomis I loved this when I read it years ago 👍🏽😁 but it was slow (edited) 2y
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @MinDea I hope you‘ll get into it! I loved it... but that was ages ago! 2y
LaurenReads I loved it in high school! But that was in 1999... 2y
VioletBramble I loved this book. It is slow and atmospheric. I'll warn you that it starts slow and gets even slower in the middle. The story is so lovely it is well worth the time you'll spend reading. 2y
Cinfhen Oh no @VioletBramble it gets slower ?!? I think we're screwed @MinDea 😳 2y
Cinfhen It's the type of book I usually enjoy but im just NOT feeling it @Smrloomis @BarbaraBB @LaurenReads 2y
Lizpixie @Cinfhen I‘ve just sent you an email Cindy with a question about my playlist. Once that‘s resolved I‘ll do the graphic and post it by tomorrow night🇦🇺💚💛 2y
Reviewsbylola You lost me at lyrical. I prefer straight forward. 2y
Bklover I‘ve tried this one a couple of times and never made it past the first 20pages or so. 🐌🐌🐌🐌 2y
Cinfhen I responded @Lizpixie tough call!!! 2y
Lizpixie I‘ve decided to err on the side of caution & chose another song by the same band. Also, this novel is gorgeous but it‘s a really slow burner. If you persevere it‘s a lyrical, gentle story, very Japanese in its flow. Like cherry blossoms 🌸 2y
Amanda.T I‘m enjoying it, but the slow pace is making it difficult for me to pick it up. I‘m going to try to get through some more of it this week. 2y
Cinfhen Cherry blossoms are my favorite 🌸 💗you probably made the right choice @Lizpixie 😘 2y

I lent this book to a girl who worked with me several years ago. She never returned it, and then quit, so I never got it back. I‘m super careful about who I lend books to now.

JamieArc I lent a book to friend I still see and would never have guessed she wouldn‘t return it. Since then, I now have a rule where I don‘t lend a book unless I don‘t mind not getting it back, or if I make it explicitly known that I expect it back. 2y
Tamra Rule of thumb for just about anything, including $, don‘t lend, give without expectation of return. That way nobody gets hurt. 2y
SandyW I just got back a book I never expected to see again! But I understand how unicorn-rare that scenario is! 2y
Jaimelire Such a wonderful book. I always give away, share, lend books...I want everyone to love them as much as I do. Plus if I didn‘t, I would need another house just to store them all😜 2y

#petsandpaperbacks @HotMessJess

1. Shadow aka Bubbie John aka Bub aka John aka Shadow badow

MinDea 3a. Besides the house I just bought, he is the most expensive "item" in it. He ate a quarter one time and it cost so much money to have surgery to get it removed. He also has other health issues 2y
MinDea 3b. Sometimes he forgets about his tongue and leaves it out after he bathes 2y
MinDea 3c. He likes to sit at the kitchen table while we eat dinner 😆😆😆🍽 2y

HotMessJess Awww! I call Pepperjack Bubs and Bubbas and Bubby and Bub too!!! So cute! Thank you!! 2y

Watching our friends dog this morning. He is so cute. His name is Wiglaf! Anyone know what book that is from? Hint! It is one of my favorite poems!

I am sort of struggling with this book. I am very interested in the story, but am finding it slow. Hope I can get more into it. Finding I can only read a few pages at a time...🤔 Anyone else finding it slow?

MinDea Isn't it?! @Kappadeemom When I first met him and they told me his name I was like "from Beowulf?!?"... they were impressed I knew where his name was from! ???Their other dog's name is Rupert...from Family guy or some show like that. 2y
LauraBeth He is adorable!! 2y
mcipher So cute!! ❤️ How do the kitties feel about him? 2y
ghosthost Aww! 💜 2y
GypsyKat Adorable! 2y
MinDea @mcipher I was at their place for the weekend. So the kitties didn't meet him. I think they wouldn't have been a fan 😆😆😆 Though he was very calm and just wanted to sit on someone's lap so maybe would have been ok?! 🤷🏻 2y
mcipher Who knows with kitties! 🙃 2y

SilversReviews Such a good book. 2y
Amanda.T I started it this week. I‘m about 5 chapters in and enjoying it! 2y
MinDea I am 5 chapters in too @Amanda.T I am finding it a little slow and hoping it picks up a little bit but I am interested in everything going on! 2y
MinDea @Cinfhen have you started this yet? Are you liking it? 2y
Cinfhen I'm also about 3 chapters in, I think the writing is beautiful but it's a little slow for me too! It's a lot of back story right now...but I have high hopes...my cover is different than yours, although I like your cover @MinDea 💗 2y
Cinfhen Wait???? That's Ethan Hawke😱 2y
