I do agree that writing in dialects can work, but it is very hard to do convincingly. The second time I tried, I was able to get used to it, but the speech patterns are very jarring and uneven. There were a lot of loose ends that were neRver tied up. It is written from his perspective in a caveman-like dialect. The harsh realities of life turn survivors into scavengers.
Then his goal is escape and heading back up to the hills. The valley look pretty bare in the snow. Today's climate discussions are often so focused on global warming that it can be easy to forget that dramatic changes in climate, including extensive periods of global cooling, have been a hallmark of earth's history for billions of years. Capitalism is dead, the black market is slowly closing down, and the population is being gathered in certain areas of the country. Crockett on narrative voice and an especially cold winter: What was your inspiration for After the Snow? Soon they developed a friendship based on sympathy, dependency and fondness. Willo must save her; also he has to go to the city to solve this tangled mystery. The oceans stopped working before Willo was born, so the world of ice and snow is all hes ever known.
We don't understand, we try to make good--maybe we find ourselves. That alone would make me hesitant to try this one out. No explanation is offered and Willo doesn't seem all that curious. He meets people he can trust and those who try to hurt him. I so badly want to give this odd little novel 4 stars, but I just can't do.
From literary standpoint, the novel is written skillfully. Mary- Mary is a girl that Willo finds on his way to Geraint's farm to find out where everyone went. Crockett has created a voice that gets inside you, a voice that, though limited in vocabulary and perspective, achieves remarkable emotional range. I hope you all have better luck.

Ο δεκαπεντάχρονος Γουίλο ζει μαζί με την οικογένεια του στα βουνά και έχει συνηθίσει σε έναν αρκετά άγριο τρόπο ζωής. After the Snow is an incredible story.

It just wasn't my cup of tea and didn't work out for me.
The dog talks to him like Patrick Ness' book. Reading is not a passive experience. Wait, what about that goal of finding his family? Cold and alone, Willo heads to the city to find his father. I would recommend it to readers who liked the writing style of and who are into books which display the inner monologue which employs the language of a mainly oral culture of a loner, his struggle to survive in harsh dystopian surroundings a realistically painted future ice-age in Europe , and his efforts to grasp the mystery of his own dangerous situation. I was fascinated and I had high expectations for this book. In this version, it's like our world has been turned into Narnia during the White Witch era.
They guard the settlements, control food and electricity and arrest those without papers. I can see a sequel to this, but I would not be surprised if there weren't one. But the only creaking is just the old house moving in the cold. Cover: Beautiful, I love the angle and it suits the story. And the thing is that most people give up a book on page 100 or lower. I love the writing style similar to The Knife of Never-Letting Go and Blood Red Road and the constant struggle for survival in the snow.
