The Buddha in the Attic
by Julie Otsuka
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is filled with raw, intense accounts on Japanese women and their families, before and during WWII. These women were forced into (mostly) loveless marriages in America. Not only that, but they endured so much during their journeys to various internment camps in the United States.
I found the book to be quite well-written. At first, I will admit that I did not like the ambiguous points of view in which the book was written, but I grew to actually like it because it seemed all the more real. I definitely recommend this book to fans of the WWII time period and anyone who would like to read about the Japanese people in America.View all my reviews
