Not the books, the titles.

I love the sound and imagery present in the title "Snow Falling on Cedars." For me, it's very evocative of snowfalls in the woods when I was a child. Peaceful. Sparkle. Silence. If it's possible for a sound to be detectable only to the mind's ear (the auditory equivalent of the mind's eye), it is present in the woods when snow is falling on cedars.

I also like the title "House of Sand and Fog."

I did enjoy reading both books, beyond the wonderful titles.

judy5ca Interesting that you like titles with imagery, Kathleen. I tend to like titles that aren't understood until I read the book:

Last Night in Twisted River The Accidental Tourist Digging to America You Shall Know Our Velocity!

Jme A Thousand Years of Solitude An American Tragedy Bonfire of the Vanities. The World A cording to Garp

These are just the titles, what I love are the stories, stories with themes and images and characters and senes that have stayed with me over the years.
