SNOWPIERCER VOL. 1: THE ESCAPE

SNOWPIERCER VOL. 1: THE ESCAPE - Jacques Lob This is another story where the idea behind the fiction is intriguing, but the story itself fails in a few ways. For one, the characters aren't developed beyond a few key characteristics; for another, the pacing is off, to the point where the really important parts of the story happen in a matter of one or two panels. The book is intriguing both for its setting and theme, but beyond that, it's hard to recommend it. If anyone can stick with it long enough to get to the second volume, though, the story (and the writing) improves a great deal.
