    ePUB Julie Otsuka Ø Ø The Buddha in the Attic Kindle Ì The Buddha PDF \ in buddha kindle, attic book, The Buddha ebok, in the mobile, Buddha in the ebok, The Buddha in the Attic PDF/EPUBIt truly boggles the mind all of the attention this book has gotten The premise is very simple told in the first person plural the stories of the women who were brought over from Japan before WW2 generally to miserable lives they had not anticipated is related There is no story in this book however as it is everyone's story So we get every variation of where they had come from every variation of sex for the first time with their husbands childbirth work raising children interacting with Americans etc it is a sad life and a hard one for almost everyone involved with only moments of joy and happiness smothered by work and misery and mistreatmentThe book is certainly beautifully written There is a lyricism that is touching some phrasing of ideas that is striking some chuckle worthy ignorance about white people that mirrors the ignorance of white people about Japanese
