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 ...
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 plodded through 180 pages of awkward writing, whiny, dysfunctional characters, and glacially paced plot before tossing this novel into my recycle bin. I found that the constant hints to something awful in each character's past irksome and an ineffective method to hold the reader's attention. On the bright side, having spend $7 and change on this paperpack, I will not be tempted to purchase this author's work in hardcover.
