Praise for Snowbound
The journey towards the end of SNOWBOUND is as chilling as the setting is cold. Crouch's gift for suspense has never been this personal before. This is Blake Crouch, scholar of words, parser of tales. With great humbleness and the back-up of a Booklist Starred Review, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. SNOWBOUND is simply superb.
Crouch goes all in, writing harrowing scenes with pump-action Mossbergs and hand-to-hand combat, the site of a shocking betrayal and a frantic struggle for survival...Crouch's plot is compelling...a wild ride through uncharted territory.
CURLED UP WITH A GOOD BOOK
SNOWBOUND will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, until you reach that final chapter, disappointed not by the novel but because there is simply no more to read.
You have never read anything like SNOWBOUND, a sweet nightmare of a book that is unforgettable on several different levels. To put it another way, it's the Highway 61 Revisited of thriller novels. Some of you know what a compliment that is. If you don't, let me end by telling you this: I was screaming at one point while reading, and a few pages later I had tears in my eyes. Readers pour through shelves of books looking for writing like that. Look no further. I can't give you a greater recommendation than that.
Not only is there the poignant overriding feeling that comes from the loyalty and love that surrounds the bonds of a tight-knit family, but add to that a wild adventure that stretches from Arizona to Alaska, and throw in some damned scary criminals, blizzards and wild wolves, and you have all it takes for a top-notch read. This is one that should appeal to most everyone.
