This review is from: The Ice Storm (Paperback)
Don't believe this cover - this book certainly isn't a comedy although it has a few humorous moments. In reality it is a gripping read of relationships falling apart and the impact on the families - all coming to a head with the dramatic events on the evening of the ice storm. I saw the film first and loved it. I'd also recommend the book for a slower more in depth exploration of a moving story where you can connect with each of the 8 central characters. I'm looking forward to watching the film again.
Why not 5 stars ? A little slow at times during the first half before really gripping in the second half.
