#Review & #Givewaway - THE POSSIBILITY OF SNOW by Al Riske

My Review

4 STARS - I am almost tempted to give this book a 5-star rating because of the challenges the reader faces. If you want to read a book that doesn't end the way that you totally suspect, then this is a book for you! Totally! This book was very disturbing to me in the sense that the 2 lead characters fed off their personality weaknesses to the point where you wanted to knock them upside the head to wake them up to reality. The storyline flowed smoothly and the history between the characters was well written. The ending blew me away! This book will challenge the way you think.

About the book: An engaging, lyrical, and, at times, disturbing novel, The Possibility of Snow tells the story of a once-promising friendship that dissolves into antagonism. Steve and Neil room together at a small college in New England and soon become fast friends, until things go strangely wrong. Steve is eccentric, slightly paranoid, and too perceptive for his own good. He knows the difference between what people say and what they do. Neil is reflective, sincere, and not as together as he seems. There's not much he's sure of anymore. They know each other very well and understand each other not at all. Get The Possiblity of Snow through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
