    DOC í READER Snow Falling on Cedars ´ DAVID GUTERSON Snow Falling on CedarsYou know that guy who's at every party the one who loves to hear himself talk and tells long winded stories while the unlucky few who got caught in his gravitational pull nod politely and and start eyeing the exits? Yeah David Guterson is That Guy His book has a really intersesting subject a few years after World War Two a man of Japanese descent is accused of killing a white man on the small island community of San Piedro The story follows the trial and breaks every now and then for flashbacks about various characters' pasts Good story but Guterson bogs it down with absolutely pointless backstories and details I didn't need to know for example what six different random San Piedro residents did when the huge blizzard hit or how the accused man's wife's mother was a mail order bride from Japan And I think the book would have been eually enjoyable if Guterson hadn't treated his readers to a description of how the murder victim spent his last day alive screwing his wife in the show

    DOC í READER Snow Falling on Cedars ´ DAVID GUTERSON Snow Falling on CedarsWhen I found the word cedars 7 times on a 2 page spread I shut down The language is simple; maybe I'm supposed to perceive it as deep mysterious or simply written in a beautiful way but I just found it dull I was so tired of hearing about snow and cedars I think it had a trial in it and a Japanese fisherman and some discrimination; maybe it happened in an internment camp in Washington state or something Or maybe the main character is investigating his father's involvement in a trial in the 1940's I don't remember My book club read it and our discussion of it was not very interestingFunny I just read a review by Gina she called the language flowery and gave this example By October San Piedro had slipped off its summer reverler's mask to reveal a torpid soporific dreamer whose winter be
