There is an air of mystery about this series that hints at the practicality of 'everything happens for a reason'. Although I have a bit of a problem with that concept, it is presented here in the light of physics and if taken in this context is wholly believable. It is a relaxing read the will hold your attention to the end.
I very much like the genre of revised fairy tales. I had read "Beauty, Inc." and even though the ending seemed rushed and plot points unexplained, I liked it well enough to buy "Driven Snow".
A big reason for my rating is the pace is horrendously slow.
Other aspects include that Snow got his handsome Prince right out of the box. That wish felt very rushed and anti-climatic. Anitra's dialogue in the role of the "wicked queen" did not help flesh out the character but made her simply a cardboard cutout of a villain.
Discrediting Snow as a prostitute and how the characters overreacted with such a puritan perspective was a bland catalyst. The fraternity brothers as the dwarf stand-ins were pushed so much into the forefront. The excessive characterizations for each one caused me to start skimming through the text.
When all is revealed in the Las Vegas chess tournament, the plethora of characters dumbed down the "good triumphing over evil" message. The Snow/Riley ending was moot to me at that point.
I realize I am in the minority here. The preview was interesting enough and the story received high ratings; hence, I bought it.
All I can say is that the book was a chore for me to finish.
