A theme that has been worked too often.
on 10 August 2012
Had this been the first book I had read with this theme (Monster trapped in ice, thawed and wreaks havoc) I would have thought it an excellent book however as I read it I kept thinking I have heard this all before.
The actual story is well structured and fast paced, I am not sure about the French bashing which is rather overdone and some of the dialogue does not ring true for example one of the lead characters is in a life threatening situation and , to quote the authors words "This is bad," Harry said, nervously stating the obvious.
The descriptions of the ice and the locations are superb and the characters are interesting but unless you have never read a book with this theme I think you will find it a case of déjà view.
