A sweet and innocent story set against a harsher backdrop

Enjoyed reading this book for two separate book clubs on two different occasions and found it equally engaging both times. I could relate to the story of Keiko\'s family in so many ways being a first generation immigrant myself. The treatment of Japanese families during World War II times, in America raises some fundamental questions about the duty of the country to uphold the rights of its own citizens. The issues remain highly relevant and current and make you pause to think what has changed or not changed in past several decades.

Interesting Read!

The book gave some good insights about the essential role of state in a developing economy like India! However, the book lacked a well organized presentation of Ideas at places and could have been edited better.

The other side!

This book humanizes Atticus Finch by showing him as a southerner who is very annoyed by the Federalist approach to fix segregation, while the south is not ready for the social change. While the novel is brilliant in making a convincing argument for segregation and even a more convincing argument for why segregation is not the solution through Scout..... It fails to explain the \\\"change\\\" in Atticus\\\'s outlook who always believed in justice and equal rights for all.

Very informative!

Very interesting topic. The book is very insightful about why many women are opting to stay single and addresses some myths about the lives of single women. Excellent read and a very discussable book!
