I'm more of a classics reader so I was not sure what to expect when I picked up a copy of this lighthearted horror/thriller. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the book. It reads smoothly and easily, it definately keeps your interest and it provides some good chuckles as well. The sense of place is keen and the characters sympathetic. A good read, it's the perfect travel book and the short chapters make it a great book to pick up during your daily coffee break.

I confess I purchased the kindle edition because my husband said I need to slow down on my book purchases. I read between 5-6 books a week. This book was very entertaining and held my attention. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. For the purchase price it more than exceeded my expectations. I look forward to following the authors works.

I really enjoyed this book. The plot and pace are very good. Easy to read. Only major complaint: in many places, the dialogue seemed somewhat forced and awkward. I found myself at times thinking "Real people wouldn't talk in that manner under those particular circumstances." Perhaps dialogue in future works will improve with the author's experience. I would certainly be willing to give any sequel a try!

Wow what can I say? just finished reading this book and am so disapointed... It began so well that my hopes were raised only to be dashed mid-book... it reached a point I was rooting for the creature... some of the worst dialogue ever, in the beginning the one liners and sarcasm was working but to carry it on regardless of the situation was plain annoying and unrealistic... too bad though, this book had potential.

The first part of the book was quite good, and almost believable. As the book progressed, there were too many incidences of the main character being the only survivor of many horrible and seemingly impossible situations (where everyone else was killed). The writer is good, but he needs to maintain the level of writing that he starts his books with. I found the last 1/3 quite out of whack with the first 2/3's of the book - almost as if the author had run out of ideas as to how to wrap it up and get to the ending.

I have mixed feelings about this book; I liked many things about it but at the same time the pacing was working against the story line. I found most of the characters in it to be terrific and believable and I enjoyed reading about their struggles while watching their lives turn to hell on ice but the book took so long to get to the point that I lost interest about sixty percent in, with some intense editing this would have been a much stronger read, there was way too much writing, I know that authors work really hard at churning out those two thousand words a day but in reality they aren't meant to keep them all, you have to cut and slash to make the story tight, the reader should be left wanting more and not left tired and ready for a big break.

An ancient frozen monster encased in ice is released into the modern world eating everything in its path. A handful of scientists and some local pilots are trying to discover the mystery behind his existence and his miraculous awakening after five thousand years. Now I know that even the biggest predator with the sharpest teeth can't be a 24/7 killing machine, he was clearly not hungry, his only aim was to slash and kill.. yawn... did anyone check if he was a robot? Maybe a chip short circuited. Anyways, the writing style was pretty good, I was pleasantly surprised that there was no spelling or grammatical errors which can trip even the best self published works and there was a bit of a heart to the story, but overall it didn't measure up to it's own premise because it was way too lengthy and at times it felt tedious to keep going. I also felt the lack of cold when I read this, most of the action is either on an iceberg, in frozen water or under bad weather, but everyone was just hanging out as if it was a balmy 70 degrees..

I expected more from this book based on the reviews, but I was disappointed in this one. There is really very little story here and as someone else said, the dialogue is awkward. Our hero is constantly cracking "one liners" that just aren't funny; I found them juvenile and a distraction.

The book just felt amateurish, like his first attempt at writing. It's also similar to other books I've read, and closely resembles Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child. While not one of Childs stronger books it is a far better then Thaw, and a more satisfying read.

The basic plotline is interesting but the writing starts out amaturish and gets absolutely sloppy about half way through. It appears the editor just gave up at chapter 47. Also, what's with the gratuitous French bashing? That was just annoying.
