Rated of 5
The school kids that continually state that this novel is "boooringggg" simply don't understand the text. I think that Snow Falling On Cedars was beautifully written, and there is a need for all the description in it to put yourself in the characters mind and place. This story about Ishmael and his journey through the harsh realities of life captures many important issues relating to the time we are in now, including love, passion, racism, justice, hate and regret. This story is a murder mystery/love story/war story/everything story. In other words, there is a bit in there for everyone and I strongly suggest that anyone with a passion for reading challenging but very rewarding texts, should definitely read Snow Falling On Cedars. You won't regret it!
