 Refreshing

A refreshing change in dialogue to other books. When I first started reading the book I found it difficult to get into as it is written as though it were narrated by a child. The sentences do not always make sense so at the beginning I had to re-read a few. But open your mind and once you get used to the way it is written the story unfolds to be one of survival, betrayal and friendship as we follow Willo in his search for his family. Would recommend to all ages.

Top 100 Books Reviewer

Though the book's marketing has clearly been aimed at the 'young adult' demographic, I felt it had wider appeal. The story is set in a not too distant future where the world has been plunged into an eternal winter and follows Willo, a teenage 'straggler' living on the fringe of society with his family. One day whilst he is out trapping his family are taken, and his quest to find them is set in motion.

Told in first person and intertwined with willo's internal dialogue, this is a fairly easy but very entertaining read. Despite it's initial post-apocalyptic outlook, After the Snow is less misery and doom but more a sense of what life could be like where society hasn't quite collapsed but daily life has become harder.

 A totally worthwhile read

After the Snow by Sophie Crockett is like an orange; hard to get into, but worth it once you are there. Willo is a young straggler boy which I like; so many books are written from a female perspective that it is great to read something different. This book was certainly something different!
There is one thing about this book that many will love but many may hate. The book is written how someone of his age would speak. The sentences do not all make grammatical sense but by using this technique you really feel like it is being narrated by a child. You see the childs world through his eyes and the descriptions make you see things differently.
The story is gripping once you get into it. Willo is out hunting and trapping hares when his family is taken away with no trace of where they have gone. Willo goes on a journey of survival, of him against the world.
His personality really develops throughout the book, and other characters like Jacob and Mary shows how he grows as a person.
This is a really good book that although may not be appealing to everyone is a worthwhile read that I fully recommend.
