Strange is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about this book. In a post-apocalyptic world with supernatural blizzards, strange is a perfect fit.
I’ll admit that the first couple of chapters had me expecting a poorly written book with so much random jargon that I wasn’t going to be able to enjoy it. I was happy to be incorrect. The author sets the stage for the rest of the book through the language he chose in the first couple of chapters, which makes sense once you continue reading. There is an easy shift between perspectives and language used depending on the scene.
Overall, the story was not what I expected, and it was interesting to see the character’s growth. A lot of description was used, which helped show the landscape after a long war—taking us through various aspects of a world utterly unknown to us.
As the story finally concluded, many of the pieces I wondered about fell into place. Though I still have a few questions (but I won’t give you spoilers).
If you like strange books (and are an adult – the language choices are geared towards an adult audience), then this will be right up your alley.
