Here's a bit about the book and a link to Mr. Northrop's site: The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. That for those in its path, it would become not just a matter of keeping warm, but of staying alive....
Wow, I mean WOW! This book was like riveting for me. I read it all in several hours, during a snow storm nonetheless. It was intense and thought provoking at the same time. I liked Scotty, the main character. He was a genuinely good guy. His insight into the people trapped with him was interesting as well.
I did have a couple little nit picky things that I wasn't crazy about. I was talking to my son about this book and explaining that they didn't have a signal for cell service. He said, "Interesting because most schools are wired for Wi-Fi these days." I don't know a whole lot about the technical side of things but thought it interesting too that they couldn't get a signal out or anything at any time. The last thing was that I wasn't crazy about the loose ends left in the end. Of course, the author can end his book any way he wants.
Despite my minor little issues, this book was awesome and one of my fav's so far this year. Great book to read in a raging snow storm. I'm giving this one 4 1/2 chilly kisses!
