First came the snow. Then came the screams. Six hundred and fifty pupils, confined to their classrooms, waiting impatiently for the break-time bell to ring, eager to rush outdoors for a snowball slugfest.

So I downloaded the FREE eBook and started to skim it. Well, lemme tell ya, it SUCKS you in and never lets go. I read it all in one night because I just could not stop! At just over 41,000 words, it's about novella-length and a very fast read.

The premise is simple. What if a highly adhesive substance (think Ultra Super Glue) fell from the sky and looked just like snow? Whatever touches it, sticks. Permanently. It doesn't melt when the sun comes out either. You touch it with bare skin and you do

This was a very very good book! I would have given it five stars but I was a little bit disappointed that it left some questions unanswered.
This was really different to anything I've read, a really unique idea.
The author I think is self published like myself. He is good, really good. Had me gripped from the very start and didn't stop until the story was finished.
Definitely recommend people to read this book. Really worthwhile

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes apocalyptic fiction
This a highly original adventure in which a snow like substance cripples the world. If you stand on the substance or even touch it, you stick to it! The protagonist comes up with a very clever method of travel, all the while wondering how the human race will survive this apocalypse. Highly recommended.
