Just as the snow is melting away here in indiana I finish Falling for Snow. It's really a sort of love story between Jamie and winter. Not in a weird way, but in a I-know-how-to-express-my-love-for-winter way. He hits science, history, literature, living in snow, snow sports. It makes me miss snowboarding terribly. He had a style of writing that took me a chapter to digest, but by the end I was hoping the pages wouldn't stop.
This is the type of book I can put down and pick up again easily - there are a lot of interesting facts and stories but there isn't a lot of connection between the chapters (other than the main focus being snow). I enjoyed most of it, although I did find the scientific information more interesting than the literary references.
