Book Review #1082 Ice by Sarah Beth Durst
Book Review #1082
Ice by Sarah Beth Durst
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I'm a sucker for fairy tale remakes and this cover totally had me wanting to read this book. As far as for the story, I didn't like it as much as I had expected. I loved the first half of the book. But the second half took a turn I wasn't expecting. I was also annoyed with Cassie and what she was doing to herself. The novel took so long building to the climax and then it ended 2 pages later. I liked the story, but I was slightly dissatisfied at the end. To be fair, the original story is pretty out there (AKA = bizarre). There were parts of this story that just kind of made me grimace. And at the same time, there were parts I really enjoyed. But on the whole, I felt like it could have been better. I do see how others might like it. It just wasn't for me.
