If you have ever clubbed a hare on its wonderful rabbity dreaming head, or wiped your satisfied mouth after some disgusting English delicacy (heathens), or were a Austrian farmer deforming a rabbit to giant proportions just so you wouldn't have to get your lazy ass up from the table for thirds, then you are a horrible person and quite monstrous. I hate you if you have ever thought yourself looking quite fine on a night on the town in your rabbit fur coat. What kind of a sick person goes about st...more

Frost Dancers is about a blue mountain hare named Skelter whose plucked from his highland mountains and forced to run a hare coursing event. He escapes and struggles to make do with finding a new community for himself among field hares. He briefly stays in a rabbit warren and we're treated to the prejudices and differences a lot of humans wouldn't realise were there. A coworker of mine accused me of lying that hares were even different than rabbits.

I seriously thought for a while that the title of this book was "Frost Dangers" because those damn hare ears cover up the important lower half of the letter 'C' in the title. So I kept trying to google "Frost Dangers" (and I thought to myself, 'What a dumb title for a book'), and until I finally got a closer look at the cover and realized it said "Frost Dancers". Apparently, I'm not alone in this confusion. Had my sister, dad, and mom fooled too. ._.

I don't really know what to think of this one...
For starters, it certainly isn't a bad book, that's for sure. And I must have enjoyed it to at least some extent, otherwise what's the point of finishing it?
But it's far from the best books I've read, heck, it's not even one of the better books I've read.

There are a few sections that are really good, and by that I mean the kind that want you to keep on reading until you realize it's 3 AM. But there are just a few of those sections, and short ones a...more
I chose this book because I am very fond of Watership Down by Richard Adams. I found it engaging, but not quite as intricate and engrossing as Watership Down is. It was a quick read. I learned a lot about hares. And I was dumbfounded to discover that the hare's biggest threat actually exists in real life, but not where mountain and brown hares are likely to reside. I was very disappointed that one "heroine" was dispatched with rather early. I liked her character and felt it could have been devel...more
A book about hares a la Watership Down. Not as good as Watership but not bad either.
I love this book and so will you if you love rabbits and hares. It's magic!
