Snow Hunters: A Novel

Snow Hunters - Paul Yoon I loved Yoon's style of choosing just the right details to convey his story. Our experience is made of small things, like dampness on the toes of your shoes on a rainy day. There is an art to selecting just the right small things to tell a reader who a character is, what has hurt them, what their dreams are, and Yoon knows how to make those selections. Plot and dialog aren't the strong points of the book, but it was a beautiful story told like an impressionist painting, and I will always remember hearing Yoon read his own words in the audio book version.
