5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling Empty, 10 Jan. 2013
By 
This review is from: War & Piste (Paperback)
My friend told me about this book (though he'd not read it) so I checked out the kindle edition preview available on Amazon (Nice touch Amazon).

Having spent a morning doing very little at work as I flicked back and forth to the web page between jobs. I decided I must have this book.

I had to wait a month until I could finally open my Christmas present and get on with reading it. It was worth the wait.

If like me you go on an annual ski trip and you need any kind of snow related fix to pass the time in between, this book is perfect for you. It's funny, the characters are loveable, the setting descriptions give you just enough to imagine and make it your own ski paradise.

I've read reviews complaining about the ending being a bit of a drag. To me it was the opposite. I found myself up reading until 2am and setting an alarm for 6am just so I could get it finished before I set off to work.

The way Alex Thomas takes you from Winter into Spring made me feel depressed (Which is a good thing) I didn't want the season to be over, especially as 'Poppy Conners' would be heading back to the grey skies of London.

By the time I'd reached the end all I wanted to know was... what happens for 'Poppy' beyond the end of the season. I would love a follow up to this book.

Finally, I have given this book 5 stars but I would have given it 4.5 if possible.

There were a number of times when I found myself thinking that they should have employed a decent proof reader before publication and the story did get a little 'Girly' and 'Emo' about 40% in for my liking but if you push through, the second half is fantastic.
