A Brilliant book - really enjoyed it and taught me loads of stuff I had never thought about much before...how the american japanese felt when the japanese bombed pearl harbout....never realised how bad things got for the Blacks in Mississipi..it just helps you to appreciate a little more about what went on..truly fascinating!

Really enjoyed this book. It really gets you thinking...a good storyline following the lives of a mother and her daughter..as well as the horrific stories of the 2nd world war and the effect it had on everyone involved.

This book was an interesting insight as to the life of an empress and the kind of things that happened, but it didn't have me glued to my car like other books do. No staying in the drive when i arrived home just to find out what happened!!!

This book is one of those that starts you off slowly...almost turned it off at one point and gave up. It is an amazing insight into the mind of a child who has aspergers and you really see and understand him. He takes you into his logical mind and explains everything from his perspective. Absolutely fantastic. Didn't want my car journeys to end!
