DNF Review: Snow by Ronald Malfi

Snow - Ronald Malfi

Snow is about a guy and a gal who first meet at an airport. They end up stranded when their flights are cancelled due to a snowstorm. They, very unwisely if you ask me, decide to rent a car and drive to their destinations instead. During a blizzard.

 

 

Bad and bloody things happen because more than snow has come rolling in with the blizzard. It has a lot of gore, action and even a religious wingnut BUT . . .

 

I am sad to say that this one was a DNF. The writing was good, there was attention to atmosphere and to character but I just didn’t love it and found myself daydreaming. The characters and their plight did not move me. After the fifth attempt at getting it done, I put it aside for the final time at the 50% mark.

 

It could be my mood (probably), or the fact that I sort of recently read a similar book and didn’t love that one either (Chills by Mary SanGiovanni) but whatever the reason I tired of the struggle and pulled the plug. It has lots of fantastic reviews by many of my trusted friends but alas it wasn’t meant for me.
