Book: Ed King, David Guterson

Have read several other books by David Guterson.  Snow Falling on Cedars is one of my all time favorites.  This one follows Ed King, whose 15 year old mother gave him up on a doorstop and he ended up being a huge technology guy – aka Bill Gates / Steve Jobs.  It’s a crazy modern take on Oedipus Rex so you basically know what’s going to happen which is part of the fun.  The novel is told from several different points of view, his mother, his father and his.  His mother was my favorite.  Definitely a good read.
