Book Review: Snow Falling On Cedars - A Novel by David Gutersoncategories: Books, Literature & Fiction, Literary, Historical Fiction
Author: David Guterson
Gripping at the EndI'm a high school student and I read this for my AP American Lit class. I enjoyed it immensely, especially as I neared the end and it wasn't winding down! I appreciated that there weren't a bunch of chapters of falling action. It was easy to imagine what happened after it ended, no loose ends, no long tie up session. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that sometimes, it was a little more graphic than I wanted. sometimes I just wanted to say "Whoa! TMI!" (TMI= too much information, in case you didn't know).
Thankfully, the author isn't just putting it in there for no reason, it is important to the story and I don#t think there was a better way to show the way some relationships worked, but still. So yeah, just don't let a thirteen year old read it.
