Snow Country Book Review:

Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabata’s Snow Country is widely considered to be the writer’s masterpiece: a powerful tale of wasted love set amid the desolate beauty of western Japan. At an isolated mountain hot spring, with snow blanketing every surface, Shimamura, a wealthy dilettante meets Komako, a lowly geisha. She gives herself to him fully and without remorse, despite knowing that their passion cannot last and that the affair can have only one outcome. In chronicling the course of this doomed romance, Kawabata has created a story for the ages — a stunning novel dense in implication and exalting in its sadness.

C P Snow s Strangers and Brothers as Mid twentieth century History Book Review:

This book studies C.P. Snow's eleven-volume series of novels (Strangers and Brothers) as documents detailing the social and political life of mid-twentieth-century Britain, and points out the uses for the novels in the academic study of that time period. Both Snow and his central character, Lewis S. Eliot, started from unremarkable origins in terms of their mutual background in the lower reaches of the middle class, their dreams of success in their teen years, and their early professional education in a new, struggling academic institution in the mid-1920s. Neither could really be considered typical for men of their class. Eliot's working life would include being a very minor town clerk, a barrister, an advisor to a powerful industrialist, a Cambridge don, a moderately powerful civil servant, and finally, in early retirement, a writer. Eliot would befriend members of both the traditional and Jewish upper classes, scholars and brilliant scientists, powerful behind-the-scenes civil servants, second-tier British and Nazi politicians, financiers and industrialists, Communists, and writers and artists, providing a fairly broad overview of parts of the middle class and ruling elites of the periods. Snow's sequence of novels is therefore useful to the historian of twentieth-century Britain, both in understanding the period as it recedes away from common experience and in presenting the period in the classroom. Snow was a classic twentieth-century writer who presented a more balanced account of the British «governing classes» of the middle third of the twentieth century than did the upper-class (and would-be upper-class) or working-class writers of the same period. His novels provide an insight that every student of twentieth-century Britain must have on hand.

Perfect Snow Book Review:

"It has snowed overnight, and the snow is PERFECT--for snowmen, for forts, for a whole school coming together to make the greatest snow structure ever! Barbara Reid takes on a quintessentially Canadian topic in her famous Plasticine style--with an exciting new twist! Even though a snow day isn't declared, first-grader Scott and fourth-grader Jim are looking forward to playing in the snow at recess and lunch. They daydream the morning away, making plans: Jim doodles snowmen; Scott plans the Totally Massive Indestructible Snow Fortress Of Doom. Things don't turn out quite as planned, but by the end of the day the whole school has pitched in to make something even better, and Jim and Scott, formerly strangers, have become friends. Barbara blends the schoolyard of her own Toronto childhood with the ones she visits today into a seamless, timeless Canadian tale that will transport every reader to his or her own favourite snowy day. Barbara Reid begins with her trademark Plasticine art and adds bright watercolour spots in a sequential panel style to add to the story. The combination takes Barbara's work to the next level--not a word or an image out of place, a fun, mixed-media delight that Canadian kids and adults will enjoy on many levels."--

The Snow Book Review:

The new Adam Roberts novel is a story of global apocalypse, old hatreds and new beginnings. It is his best novel to date. And this is how the world will end ... 'The snow started falling on the sixth of September, soft noiseless flakes filling the sky like a swarm of white moths, or like static interference on your TV screen - whichever metaphor, nature or technology, you find the more evocative. Snow everywhere, all through the air, with that distinctive sense of hurrying that a vigorous snowfall brings with it. Everything in a rush, busy-busy snowflakes. And, simultaneously, paradoxically, everything is hushed, calm, as quiet as cancer, as white as death. And at the beginning people were happy.' But the snow doesn't stop. It falls and falls and falls. Until it lies three miles thick across the whole of the earth. Six billion people have died. Perhaps 150,000 survive. But those 150,000 need help, they need support, they need organising, governing. And so the lies begin. Lies about how the snow started. Lies about who is to blame. Lies about who is left. Lies about what really lies beneath.

Snow Leopard Book Review:

The steel shod hooves struck him full in the face with such power he was sent reeling backwards, and he screamed in agony as one eye exploded from the impact and half his face was ripped off. Despite the agony of his injuries he was acutely aware that his left foot had nothing beneath it, and his mind recoiled in horror as he teetered on the edge of the trail with a black void sucking at him. The sixteen riders and sixty four horses in the expedition are beset with cataclysmic snow storms and minus thirty degree temperatures as they travel higher into the forbidding Alps. The horses are attacked by fierce snow leopards time and again as they camp in the rugged mountains, and fearless wolf packs also prey on the horses. Unknown to the expedition, to prevent Avalon's descendants laying claim to the throne as the legitimate heirs, soldiers of the false King lay in ambush to ensure they never reach the kingdom of Nebadon alive. There are traitors everywhere ready to betray them for a handful of silver coins, and trusting anyone could come at the price of their freedom or death.

Stealing Snow Book Review:

Seventeen-year-old Snow lives within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she doesn't belong there, but she has no memory of life outside, except for the strangest dreams. And then a mysterious, handsome man, an orderly in the hospital, opens a door – and Snow knows that she has to leave ... She finds herself in icy Algid, her true home, with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she's destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change everything.

My First Snow of Winter Book Review:

“How do you fall in love with someone? How do you feel when it happens? Do you smile whole day or do you realise that there is a beatbox inside you which plays the sweet songs whenever you see the one? For me it was just like a fairytale… I know most of us do not believe in magic, but I do…love is so magical when it happens with the right person, when it builds slowly, when it makes everything disappear except the love itself! But… I do have fear, I have fear that what if one day…my love story won’t have a happy ending? What if I have to see it going away and disappearing in front of my eyes? What if I’d never get the chance to see the snowfall of my love? What if my wait…stays forever?”
