I don't fancy this one. I might give it a go later, but my 'to read' is already infinite :lol:

I'm on the fence about this one. I don't know if I will love or hate it!

I borrowed mine from my public library. We had to inter-library loan it so it cost me about 50 cents. It is worth checking into.

I absolutely loved this book! I couldn't put it down. I loved the setting, the atmosphere, the characters, the mystery, the descriptions of the landscapes, the themes of the story which are hope and love. I loved evertyhing about it, I give it 10/10!

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who is feeling series burn out or who wants something different than the popular books at the moment. It was sweet, simple, poignant, and beautiful. "The Snow Child" is unpredictable and will leave the reader thinking long after the book has finished. It is not, however, heavy and overly philosophical making it a lighter read than most thought provoking books. The book is great for a change of pace.

Love the way the author's writing made my imagination work on a different level while reading this book. You don't just run in the forest with them, you also see, smell and feel the coldness in your bones. The plot however, was a bit of a let-down for me. I know it's based on a fairy tale, but I still kept on waiting and waiting for something else to happen. That might be my fault, not the author's though. :(

I rated the book a 3 out of 4 because of the ending. It was a good ending, though I wanted more. When I'm left wanting more of a book it is usually because I crave more. But in this circumstance, I just left without closure I felt.
