Book Review: Snowblind

Title: Snowblind

Author: Christopher Golden

Published: 2014

Pages: 309


Hey there friends!  This is a book that I read last summer and really enjoyed.  I didn't review it then, and for the life of me I just could not remember the name of it.  I went to the internet and kept typing in 'Snowbound.'  Anyway, I finally found it again and I am so glad!

As another blizzard approaches the small New England town of Coventry, the people stocked up on necessities as they usually did but nobody could have been prepared for what awaited them this time.  The storm seemed to have a mind of its own.  People go missing, others just wander away and are never seen again.  

"The city of Coventry had given itself over to the storm, and suddenly Ella felt foolish that she hadn't already gone home and crawled into bed with a mug of tea and an old movie."

Years later when a new storm approaches, the people who are still around...who still remember, they are quite on edge.

"If it's gonna turn into an icy mess later, so be it, but right now it's just a few flakes.  I mean, it's New England, after all.  It's not your first snowstorm....Oh my god, they've done it to me, haven't they?  I've become one of the angry snow-day people."

Although there were a lot of characters to keep up with and there are a lot of sad parts, I'm really glad I read this one...and then re-read it. Besides, there is no better way to stay cool this summer than to cuddle up to this icy tale.  And by the way, I read King's review on the cover a little closer as I pasted the image...

"Instantly involving and deeply scary.  It will bring a blizzard to your bones (and your heart) even in the  middle of July.  Throw away all those old 'it was a dark and stormy night' novels; this one is the real deal.  And watch out for that last page.  It's a killer."

And I read this in July!!!  Eeeeekkkkk!
