    Great mystery book...totally loved it , but a little confusing

    I really only bought Christopher Rice's books because he was the son of Anne Rice but once I read A Density of Souls I really liked his style of writing. In The Snow Garden the story was a bit confusing with too much stuff going on. It had me flipping back often to see if I overlooked something. The first half of the book kinda bored me but then the story got fast paced and exciting. Your judgement of the characters change completely when you see them in a different light. I still think I might have missed something key and I wish I coud discuss it with someone but noone I know read it... Definitely reccommend to everyone.

    I had high hopes when I was given a copy of this thriller, mostl

    I had high hopes when I was given a copy of this thriller, mostly because the author is the son of the Legendary Anne Rice, and I was certainly not disappointed.  I flew from page to page very quickly, as the story is addictive.  Rice definitely leaves you wanting more and feeling compassion for his characters, so much so that you end up thinking about the story long after the cover closes.  He certainly has the potential to become a literary giant, just like his mother.

    Sophomore Effort Worth the Read

    Although Christopher Rice's 2nd novel isn't as good or 'charged' with passion as his first, 'A Density of Souls,' it does still reflect Rice's excellent writing style. His ability of visual description and dropping the clues to the reader throughout the entire book is astounding. He dangles the information in front of you and you're left with always wanting more. None of the characters are especially likeable once you find out their secrets and pasts, but Rice does have you interested in each and every one of their lives as you unravel the mysteries.

    Shocking but not surprising

    Being a half-generation removed from the characters in The Snow Garden, AND being a college teacher, I found the lives of the characters to be realistic yet shocking, understandable yet somewhat unpredictable, a nice balance. I'm really thankful for the half-generation gap.

    Talented Author!

    I started reading this book and could not put it down until I was finished with it! A great story with many twists. I definitely recommend this book and I can't wait to read his first one!

    Not as good as the first, but worth reading

    Not as good as 'Density of Souls', and the ending was a bit over-the-top and unbelievable, but it was enjoyable.

    Well written. The story takes you away.

    I just finished the last page, and want more. The story was as intense as the storytelling. Mr. Rice has proved himself beyond his name.

    Well Done!!!!!

    Christopher is an author in his own right, again! Both of his books are very intriguing and hard to put down.
