Snow Falling on Cedars
Snow Falling on Cedars
by David Guterson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Descriptive and insightful…, 7 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Snow Falling on Cedars (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book and the way the characters and plot unravelled as the story progressed. I did find the description a little too in-depth at times and found myself wanting to skip paragraphs which described the weather and scenery. Instead, I found delving into the past of the characters far more interesting – a revealing insight into how the war destroyed so many lives and how prejudice determined many actions and choices during and after the war.
Compared to the rest of the novel the ending seemed incredibly quick; a lengthy in-depth treatment of the murder trial (including perhaps too much on the closing speeches as we had already read all the details and didn’t need to ream them all again) was followed by Ishmael’s quick revelation (which should have been made earlier) and subsequently the ending was upon us.
A satisfying ending however to an interesting book and a very well-written debut.
