{hi :) }

l.o.v.e.d. the book.
l.o.v.e.d. the movie.
superb acting!
not a single bad thing to say about the movie. it's one of those perfect ones. so i'm giving it five out of five stars.


this book was very enjoyable. it gives you a glimpse of a life of a Japanese wife in America after the World War II.
the only criticism i'm giving this book is that it gives false information about the church i belong to. it drives me nuts when i read/see/hear something about my church that is not true.

one thing the author says in the book is that we believe that physical intimacy should only happen when you want to have babies. what a load of baloney! trust me on this one. ;)

then it talks about how secretive our church is. hello? how can someone say that when all of our beliefs are on the church website and at the moment, more than 52,000 lds missionaries are out there in the world ready to teach anyone about our church who is willing to listen. hmm, secretive? i don't think so. 

you just can't believe all you hear/read/see on tv.

i actually got a good laugh from those parts of the book. sometimes it's very interesting what people think about our church. the "best" one i've ever heard is that the lds church has built a tunnel under the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland to the United States so that they can smuggle women to be their wives. that is the most ludicrous thing i've ever heard. :D i can't believe that someone honestly believes that but the person who said that was serious. you just gotta shake your head sometimes of some people's ignorance.

anyways, i'm giving this book three out of five stars because it was a good book but not great. an enjoyable read.
