I would place this in my top ten reads ever. I was thouroughly enchanted by this book. It was incredibly rich and beautiful, moving and illuminating...I highly recommend this book to anyone.

From the publisher:
"On San Piedro, an island of rugged, spectacular beauty in Puget Sound, a Japanese-American fisherman stands trial for murder. Set in 1954 in the shadow of World War II, Snow Falling on Cedars is a beautifully crafted courtroom drama, love story, and war novel, illuminating the psychology of a community, the ambiguities of justice, the racism that persists even between neighbors, and the necessity of individual moral action despite the indifference of nature and circumstance."

Released on Friday, February 20, 2004 at SENT TO FELLOW BOOKCROSSER in RABCK, postal release USA.

I just got this book. I'm not quite ready for a heavy read, but I'll get to it soon. I've been meaning to read this book for a long time.

I pulled this book off my shelf almost exactly seven years after receiving it.

This was an absolutely wonderful story and I am sorry that I didn't read it sooner. The characters and setting are all beautifully written and I especially love his attention to island life as well. While I found the entire book quite engaging, the second half was absolutely riveting...right up to the last page.

I am passing this book along before it gets wild released on my favorite island. It will probably make a stop in Ohio and Maryland before then.

Many, many thanks for sharing this book with me, fanclub.
