My last two reads for One Book were Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson and Samurai’s Garden by Gail Tsukiyama. Unfortunately, my library and the surrounding branches do not carry Tsukiyama’s book and it was not in stock at the shop. Thus, I forwent this title and I lept straight into Snow Falling on Cedars. I don’t have a lot of positive things to say about this book.
It was made into a movie, has been a popular choice on the One Book circuit, and a lot of people seem to like this book. I was not one of them. In fact – I couldn’t finish it. Personally I thought it was dull (definitely not a page turner), long-winded, and I gave up roughly 20-pages in. Snow Falling on Cedars is my do not read suggestion for One Book.
