Book # 26 - The Buddha in the Attic
The Buddha in the Attic
finished reading April 20, 2012
This is a story about Japanese picture brides as they forge new lives for themselves in other lands.
Abstract, anonymous and poetic. Julie Otsuka writes beautifully but I cannot seem to connect to her characters. She continues in the tradition of When the Emperor was Divine, where the people in her novel could be anyone, but not someone I would feel so connected to that I would care about her book.
