At first the residents enjoy their extra hours awake, but as time progresses they become like caged rats, all arguing and completely fed up with the sight of each other.
Now I have spent the last couple of days since finishing this book trying to establish whether the events described in this book are actually possible and I can honestly say I haven't been able to discover the truth. If anyone can enlighten me about sun spots and how they affect us, I would be really happy to discuss them.
One of the letters fascinated me, as it was written to Steve Jobs. Now bear in mind this book was written in 1992, it was astonishing to read about Steve Job's intention for computers and tablets (better known as Ipads now) to be an integral part of family life. I find it astounding to look at the present to see how his idea became reality.
I enjoyed reading the book, it was lovely to see the character's true natures shining through in their letters. In my head, I could hear them reading the letters aloud. It really was nostalgic, to step back into the 90's and visit with such familiar faces. My only niggle was that I had to keep looking at the end of each letter to find out who had written it.
For me, this was truly a comfort read that took me back to a series I used to really love watching. For any big Northern Exposure fans, I highly recommend this book. It will have you reaching for the DVD's of the series to watch them all over again.

Most of the letters are cheesey and not really how I imagine the characters would speak to their friends or family in a letter. It did seem like most of the letters were written by the same 3 or 4 people, for example my favorite characters (Ruth-Anne and Ed) have very few letters. It's mostly Maurice, Joel and Maggie and of course they bicker about one another.
There is an actual storyline that ties all the letters together, but I won't tell what it is. I would only recommend this book to real, hardcore NX fans, and even then I'd say don't pay more than $5 for it.
