The latest book from the Britmums book club is The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka. When the book first arrived I was a little puzzled about what the book could be about. At only 129 pages I also worried about how involved the plot might get. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
This was one of them books that from the second you start reading you cannot put down. I wanted to keep reading. I took ever opportunity to read it. The book tells such an empowering story. Giving an account of how strangers feel in a new land. Coming with the promise of great things, and the real truth is much harder, much colder. This book really is simply stunning.
A really wonderful and powerful book that is on my list of must reads. It is beautifully written, such a detailed account.
