This review is from: The Other (Paperback)
This is a zero star book.
I wish I had the courage to give it up after the first 50 pages , rather than persist with the increasingly forlorn hope that it might get better. The main character being called "John William", the title and the cover perhaps should have given me a clue. " Snow Falling on Cedars" was such a great book. So how very disappointed I was by this offering. It is soooo dull. The story has no interesting or exciting parts. To be honest, it has very little story at all - certainly it all could be summarised very easily in one page. I fear it will be a long time before I risk picking up another Guterson book to read.
