Hi Maureen,

Do you like The snow? My friends think that it's amazing book but I don't like it very much. :(

Maureen Farrimond (mafarrimond) | 17 comments I found the book interesting rather than enjoyable. I found it a little difficult to understand at first then I found a review on Amazon which gave explanations of some of the terms and nuances which improved it for me.
Regards Maureen
