Publisher's Summary

In Christopher Golden’s first horror novel in more than a decade - a work reminiscent of early Stephen King - Snowblind updates the ghost story for the modern age. The small New England town of Coventry had weathered 1,000 blizzards...but never one like this, where people wandered into the whiteout and vanished. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same.
Now, as a new storm approaches 12 years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow. Photographer Jake Schapiro mourns his little brother, Isaac, even as - tonight - another little boy is missing. Mechanic and part-time thief Doug Manning’s life has been forever scarred by the mysterious death of his wife, Cherie, and now he’s starting over with another woman and more ambitious crimes.
Police detective Joe Keenan has never been the same since that night, when he failed to save the life of a young boy...and the boy’s father vanished in the storm only feet away. And all the way on the other side of the country, Miri Ristani receives a phone call...from a man who died 12 years ago.
As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last.
Spellbinding in scope and rooted deeply in classic storytelling, Snowblind is a chilling masterpiece that is both Christopher Golden’s breakout book and a standout supernatural thriller.

Overwrought

What would have made Snowblind better?

While the story itself is interesting, the slang-heavy language just does not work. Characters react to everything that happens as if it is either the most dramatic event in history, or utterly mundane. There is also an unpleasant overuse of phrases like "Queen Bitch" that stick out and seem both unrealistic and somewhat misogynistic.


What could Christopher Golden have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Golden needed to dial back the drama and add some actual character development.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Berkrot?

Berkrot was just a terrible choice for this book, his particular reading style only served to emphasize the overwrought language.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I did find myself caring about the relationship between Ella and TJ, but that was about it.
