Sparse but compelling
I've read and enjoyed Jansson's Moomin series for children, so I decided to give this one a try; I wasn't disappointed. The story is set in a small town in the dead of winter. Specifics aren't given about the exact time, nor the exact location... but that doesn't really matter. The plot slowly emerges, like blades of grass poking through snow. It's to the point, without indulgent prose. For that alone, I would recommend this book. It's well-written, compelling, and not "stuffy" to read.
