Book Description

Christmas 2003 is approaching fast but festive thoughts are at least put on hold with the distraction of the Rugby World Cup as England is gripped by sporting fever. As the cheers of the victory homecoming parade begin to diminish, for one group of Brits there is the chance to rekindle their seasonal spirit when given the chance to visit a modern Christmas idyll. The prestigious Snow Lodge in Lapland plays host to a very diverse party - two amateur radio DJ's, a fading rock star and his faithful hippy roadie, an easy going marketing manager and his fiery senior executive girlfriend plus a sharp tongued lonely pensioner and his Santa suit. Spurred on by a suave entrepeneur, and with a bubbly entertainment manager in tow, the unlikely group undertake the trip of a lifetime - a very unique snow trek. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, the group have no choice but to work together to survive for it is time for them to learn who they really are. Christmas will never be the same again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on observations from Horsfall once again January 8, 2007
By Richard
I first discovered Steve Horsfall while trawling amazon looking for Nick Hornby titles (of which I'm a huge fan). I came across one of his earlier books "You Are Here" which was about four Brits on a lads holiday. It was full of amusing dating anecdotes and made for a great holiday read. It's Cold Outside isn't a sequel, but has taken all the best lad stories from You Are Here and added in a little more romance for the female reader. This doesn't detract from the obligatory lad toilet humour of which I'm a fan, but adds a little more depth and meaning to the characters and their relationships. Some of it is all too real, and it's not all sugar coated either which keeps the reader on their toes with it's surprising little turns. Set in Lapland at Christmas time (when all kinds of miracles happen, and love is always in the air somewhere) this has a little something for everyone. Fallen rock stars, rugby world cup finals, grumpy but wise old Scotsmen and workaholics endangering their love-lives (and indeed their health).

The balance between humour and human drama is juggled nicely and the book is of a suitable length not to get too bogged down at any time. Very enjoyable and suitable for just about anyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s undemanding, great fun, with a cast of characters you can’t help liking. Gary Parsons is a bloke-ish character and his relationship with sexy but power-mad workaholic Rosa is on a knife edge. Justin and Fiona are radio presenters who spar with each other, rippling the airwaves with saucy double entendres, but they’re likeable people, their friendship purely platonic.
Cameron is an older guy, down on his luck and working as a store Father Christmas, and passionate about his daughter and grandson in Australia, whom he cannot afford to visit. Dan and Drag, are has-been rock musicians who years ago employed Cameron as their roadie.
These disparate characters come together on a Lapland holiday, which ends up in an astonishing adventure that’s surely encapsulated in the book’s title ‘It’s cold outside’, and the heroes end up in wild arctic conditions, reliant on their own resources.
It’s a lively book, it’s a happy book. Most of all it’s an extremely funny book, and right up until the last page you don’t know how it’s going to end. I can give away that it’s a happy ending, but no more than that, as you really need to read it to find out what happens.
This is a book that’s an easy read, it’s undemanding, and it’s sheer good fun. It’s one of those books that give you a lift: try reading it if you’re feeling depressed – I promise you’ll end up with a smile on your face.
