Hugo Winner Book Review: The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge



I found this novel rough going. I wanted to give up on it a few times, and I did set it aside for several weeks. But about half way through my interest picked up.

There is nothing wrong with the story or writing. For some reason the plot and characters did not particularly appeal to me and it is leans more towards "soft" science fiction where I am generally a fan of the "hard" genre.

It is very imaginative, and has some very poetic writing.
