When the Emperor Was Divine Free read ´ 7 review × eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Õ Julie Otsuka Julie Otsuka Õ 7 Read S the exact emotional texture of their experience the thin walled barracks and barbed wire fences the omnipresent fear and loneliness the unheralded feats of heroism When the Emperor Was Divine is a work of enormous power that makes a shameful episode of our history as immediate as today's headlines. I finished reading When the Emperor Was Divine a couple of days ago and I was at a loss for words for my review Everything that I noticed felt and appreciated about the denseness of this sparse little book was neatly encapsulated in the synopsis of this edition Check it out if you haven t alreadyAnyway part of my goals this year is to review every single book I read and so OCD got the better of me and here I am now How can I sum up this book without being redundant Simply this this is a book that needs to be read at some point in your life It s a part of silent history because as of today we have yet know all the different ways Japanaese American families were affected during this pivotal time of American history Life didn t just resume like it had before People were changed Familes were displaced Belongings were lost Spirits were broken Even though this was Otsuka s debut novel I m glad I read her follow up first In retrospect The Buddah in the Attic almost seems like a preuel Either way you can t go wrong with either one of these books They re short novellas and for a somewhat slow reader I was able to finish both in one to two sittings Check them out if you get a chance
