Snow Falling on Cedars - David Guterson
This book packed a lot into its 460 pages - a murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a love story (or two), racism, the interment of Japanese citizens during World War II - but it all worked together well. For its length, this was a surprisingly fast read. Some of the subject matter was sad but it's an unfortunate part of U.S. history, so it's important to learn from it so we can try not to make the same mistakes again. All in all this was a very enjoyable read.
