Friday Books: Snow

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
My opinion about this book vacillated between "this is dumb" and "this is good." The first third, I thought, was not great. The characters are stereotypical and predictable. The story is based on a folk tale which was too fantastical for my unbelieving mind. As the story unfolded and ventured more toward believability, I enjoyed it much more. Then the ending disappointed me, as well. So I rate the book somewhere between two and three stars. To be honest, I wouldn't recommend spending money or time on this book.
