Snow Falling on Cedars | David Guterson

I picked this up from a few little library in my neighborhood based solely on the cover.
What a wonderful story! His descriptions at times had me surprised when I looked out my own window and didn‘t see the snow falling or the lush scenery of the fictional San Piedro Island.

Reading this - all I can think is…
You only know what you know.
This book is making me realize that there are many things I have no knowledge of or understanding of.
Ideas and history I have never thought of or have been taught.

This was engaging- we enjoyed that we were familiar with many of the places mentioned.

Then the mother of the murdered boy rose, turned to you, and said, “You exist. You matter. You have value. You have every right to wear your hoodie, to play your music as loud as you want. You have every right to be you. And no one should deter you from being you. You have to be you. And you can never be afraid to be you.”

SamAnne I almost bought this used last week. Do you recommend? 2y
Christinak @SamAnne I picked this copy up years ago at a library book sale. I finally have decided to finally work on reading all these books I bought years ago - I think the sheer size of this had me set aside until I had the time to tackle it. I started this yesterday and am now about a third of the way through. I am kicking myself for waiting so long. 2y

The audiobook is really well done. The full cast is like listening to a documentary.

Having difficulty focusing on the books I‘m currently reading so I‘m trying this audiobook. Just a couple of chapters in but I‘m close to hooked already. I am enjoying the narrators. #whodoneit #snowedin
