The Snow Child: Review

I just finished reading The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey and just had to share with you guys. It was a slow book to start but the imagery of Alaska was stunning. As it went through I enjoyed it more and more and I ended up in tears at the ending. Below is the link to my good reads review. If you like fairy tale adaptions and love reading about different places I think you will enjoy this book.

Below is a link to my good reads review and you can see more about the book there. I'm really glad I persevered and read this book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was slow to start and I found the attitude of the main character frustrating in how negative she was about everything. But I kept reading because the images of the landscapes that were being written about were so realistic and beautiful that I just had to know more. Her descriptions of the environment were absolutely beautiful and really transported you to Alaska. As the book moved forward I became more and more invested in the characters and by the end was in tears. You have a fair idea where the book is going by about 3/4 of the way through but it ends beautifully. If you know the fairy tale then you know what essentially will happen but this version is just beautiful. The only reason it's 4 not 5 stars is I found it hard to get into at first and even when I was enjoying the story I could still put the book down for a couple of days without a worry. So it didn't capture me entirely.
