My brother has almost all the Behind the Story books because he and his wife are avid readers and he lent me this one since I am such a Clancy fan...

Re-read the original book RIGHT AFTER reading this book!
The original book suddenly became much richer and more enticing after I finished this Behind the Story, I HAD to open up the original book once more! Highly recommended!

SAMPLE EXCERPT:

“What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book?”

The Buddha in the Attic is a prequel to ‘When the Emperor Was Divine’. Julie Otsuka said that after her first novel was written, she had questions in her head with answers she needed to write, mostly about how the Whites felt when their Japanese neighbors disappeared without a word. There were still a lot of issues to be tackled that felt personal to her, because she would basically be tackling her own family’s past and this would confirm to her what her elders chose not to talk about as she was growing up. Her researches and afterwards, her writing of ‘The Buddha in the Attic’, gave her a deeper understanding of issues that were never spoken about but which had always been there like a ghost - never seen but always felt. She wanted to write about the “picture brides”.

----------------------------------------------------------

Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.

if you're a real literature junkie or a diehard fan of the novel (I am both) it's really a must read. Highly recommended.

    Unfortunately Ms.Reagan would benefit greatly from a course in basic grammar -- or a knowledgeable editor who understands basic principles of grammar. Her numerous grammatical errors hurt my ears. For one thing, the title should be "Who's the author ANYWAY," not "anywayS"." The "s" at the end of anyway is incorrect. One of the most basic principles is: "A verb should agree in number with its antecedent noun (or pronoun." She writes: "... mother and an uncle WAS interned..." That should be ".. WERE interned..." Another, similar error: "Amazon, Barnes and Noble, as well as Indiebound and other independent bookstores HAS it on their year-end Best-Seller lists." The sentence is awkward grammatically. Much better to have written "Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and other independent bookstores HAVE it on their ..." Her awkward grammatical errors are most annoying - and distracting. This Nook Book is not worth the $4.63 that I paid for it. I will not buy another in this series.I would return this one if I could.
