Hi everyone- I'll get us started!
What did you think of the Snow Child?


Claudia Haines | 3 comments Mod
Living in Alaska, I always wonder what bias I bring to a book like this, one that is so rooted in the Alaskan experience. For me it is easy to see the landscape and the light (or lack of) Eowyn describes. How do you think being Alaskan shapes the reading experience?

Eowyn's descriptions of Alaska are spot on. I tend to check for that, since so many novels purport to be set in Alaska really resemble California or Montana (if they're close). I'm interested in how the landscape informs the plot - could this novel be set someplace else? Perhaps other northern climes, but is there a particularly Alaskan subtext going on? Does the mystique of "Alaska" add to the story?
