    "The book may be lacking in its setting in the pacific northwest, but if you ignore that, it's an excellent read and I recommend it. "

    "I loved this book. It will go into my "Best Books I've Read List". This is one of those books that you just sit back and let it take you away. The descriptions of the area, the people, the way he describes the background on each character. This book made me "feel live " the characters, the storm, the cold, the snow, hear the bullets, and smell the strawberries. The tension builds as you wonder if a person you believed in was really going to do the right thing. After reading this book , I realized if I hadn't read it, I really would have missed something ."

    "A thought provoking novel indeed, 'Snow Falling on Cedars' delves very much into the post WWII era in America. The story itself is capturing to the imagination though the horrific details included in the storyline help to paint more of a picture of the past than anything. After reading the book, I felt like I had a new respect for the Japanese that were interned in concentration camps, even though the novel is about a crime thriller. "

    "I found this murder mystery novel to be very well written. The story is filled with suspense, with many twists and turns. You will most likely want to keep reading as the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I liked the title of the book, it is somewhat deceptive, although the story is set in a remote area that is quite beautiful. "

    "Snow Falling on Cedars is a great title that won several awards since 1990. It is about the murder of a fisherman, and also focuses on the Japanese culture in America after World War 2. It is a very interesting read. "

    "Snow Falling On Cedars was a really awesome read. I found it to be a really nice perspective on how it was to be a Japanese American during the time of the second world war. This book is a page-turner."

    "I wouldn't say that this is the best "coldness-related" book, and I honestly could not get into reading this book. While the descriptions in the book were pretty good if you like nature, the book also includes flashbacks to an earlier time that I found confusing at times. There's also a little bit of romance, mystery, and history (WW II) for those who like that."

    "This book was a good read. It hits on some important historical topics, like the post-WWII racism against Japanese people in the US. One of the character's obsession with the other left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. However, the descriptions are lovely and really put an image in your mind. Your mileage may vary with this book, so maybe read some reviews before picking it up."

    "This is the kind of book you want to make everyone you know read. It's beautiful and righ and poignant. I've read many books about the internment camps on the west coast during WWII, but this is the one I keep going back and back and back again to reread."

    "I love winter and the feeling that it creates. I was looking for a good book to read during winter and Snow Falling on Cedars fit that. It is a hauntingly sad story that flashes back between the 30's, 40's, and 50's. Snow Falling On Cedars is interesting and is a perfect wintertime read."

    "Who says historical fiction has to be boring? I had this book recommended to me, and I'm glad I picked it up. It's a really interesting look at not just a fairly difficult period in American history, but also combines a murder mystery with the recreation writing. It sort of sounds like it's a #meetoo book, or something for a social justice warrior, but it's actually really well written and very clearly laid out what's going on and why. It makes a case without bleeding its heart all over the pages."
