After the Korean War, North Korean refugee Yohan emigrates to Brazil for a fresh start. All that Yohan has left behind and how it was lost is revealed in brief moments throughout the story, woven between his new experiences in Brazil, where he reacclimates to life outside the POW camp. This is a quiet book. New relationships develop gradually; kindness is offered gently. Even moments when Yohan remembers the atrocities of war have an eerily hushed tone, and that creates a powerful impact. Snow Hunters is short, but there is a lot within its 208 pages. In the most subtle manner, author Paul Yoon manages to stir up feelings of horror, fear, relief, gratitude, love, and compassion in his readers. Simple and refined, this is the most exquisite storytelling I've encountered in a while. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any other compensation for this review.

This is a sad, moving story of a young man recovering from his wartime experiences in a strange country where he doesn't speak the language. He has a hard time forming attachments and can't express his emotions even after he learns the language. We're given a minimum of information so we often don't know what the characters think or feel. I'm not even sure exactly how the book ended. I guess the reader is to finish the closing scene. It's tempting to give the book a happy ending, but given their past and their level of distrust, can they form a lasting relationship?

Couldnt keep it in heaven knows I tried. Dont let them in dont let them see be the good girl you always have to be conceil dont feel dont let them know well now they know. Let it go let it go cant hold it back anymore. Let it go let it go turn away and slam the door. I dont care what theyre going to say let the storm rage on. The cold never bothered me anyway. Its funny how some distance makes everything seem small and the fears that once controled me cant get to me at all. Its time to see what I can do to test the limits and break through no right no wrong no rules for me Im free!!!!! Let it go let it go I am one with the wind and sky let it go let it go youll never see me cry here Ill stand and here Ill stay let the storm rage on. My power flurries through the air and to the ground my soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around and one thought cristalizes like an icy blast Im never going back the past is in the past. Let it go let it go I will rise like the break of dawn let it go let it go that perfect girl is gone. Here Ill stand in the light of day let the storm rage on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The cold never bothered me anyway.&#9787
