Damn, that first chapter ended completely unexpectedly! Bam! I totally didn’t see that coming!

The struggles of Native people in Canadian society. So much ignorance surrounding them!

Each chapter is told through a story about one of the Gibson family members. First Eva, then Stanley, Maria, Norman, and Edgar.

And then, the final chapter. Not about a family member. But about Mark. And that ends with a Bam! also!

A really good book, really well written and engrossing! This is the third book I've read by this author, and I am very impressed!… (mais)

The book begins with a beginning - the birth of a baby girl - in a beautifully written prologue! And it ends with an ending - a death - also beautifully written! And all together, an excellent sequel!

The power is still out, with no explanation - still. 6 from the tribe are chosen to find out what happened, and they journey out to find some answers. The first half of the story is about their journey, and though that may look boring, it really isn't. And when they start meeting up with other survivors, the story really picks up!

Unfortunately the Trumpsters have also survived, only now they are calling themselves the Disciples. Avoiding them, while finding a new place to settle is the major challenge the walkers face. Well, that, and just staying alive in general! I really enjoyed reading this book, and was genuinely saddened when I finished.

Twelve years after their small community abandoned their homes and trekked further from civilization to avoid the post-apocalyptic societal chaos, a small group of six Anishinaabe, led by Nangohns' father Evan, make a bold but risky decision to venture south once again to seek out their ancestral lands.

Rice's writing is beautiful. I immediately felt immersed in and found myself savoring the suspenseful narrative. I loved the glimpses into Aniishinabe culture and appreciated how Rice incorporated the language in such a way that assumed an intelligent reader would infer meaning from context. Great sequel!… (mais)

No one worries when the cell service and then the electricity goes out in the small Anishinaabe reservation in the North, but when no communication reaches them for days it becomes clear something apocalyptic has happened. How the community responds is at the heart of Waubgeshig Rice’s Moon of the Crusted Snow — part dystopian novel and part allegory for the treatment of the First Nations. What makes this book chilling is the believability of the situation, but plot holes and uneven writing leave it lacking slightly.… (mais)
