I didn't actually finish this book. I read about half of it, and I can't say it was bad, exactly, but to me it was clearly missing something. I don't like how the author keeps switching between characters, and never goes in deep enough to help me connect to the characters. The excerpts from The Book only exacerbate the problem, since they are generally boring, they pull me out of the book even more and seem just a contrived way of creating info dumps.

Having said all that, I do think The readerhas its good points. The premise is interesting, and the main characters are sympathetic. The female main character is competent, which is always noteworthy. I can see why some people would like it, but it feels unfinished and young to me.… (mais)

I got this book for review from the publisher

This book was a eye opening and powerful look at the lives of japaense americans in the 1940 after the attacks of peral harbor. I loved how this book was structured and how even though it follwed 14 different characters it really did focus on found fmaily and the so many moments and various experiecnes that was apart of thier lives in this time of their lives. The challening moments of their lives was heart breaking and you kept wanting to root for them. It was a read that will keep me thinking and will def motivate me to read more books in the future about historical time periods.… (mais)

I actually really enjoyed the world building in this novel. I did at points drag but I think that is largely because of the massive world. I did really loved the various setting we were in and also how many POV we did have. Sometimes i got a tad confused on who was who but it was interesting read. I def grew invested to most of the main characters and overall was excited about the novel. I wish I felt a little bit more invested to the the characters but I am excited for book 2!
