Remember how Seinfeld prided itself on being about nothing? But it was still funny most of the time?

This book is a profoundly unfunny Seinfeld book about nothing. The characters were blah, nothing happened and the title appeared to have absolutely no relationship to anything actually in the book.

Not quite to my taste

Michael Colford Jun 15, 2014

Michael Cunningham is a talented writer, and his prose is always a joy to read, but in his latest novel, The Snow Queen, I felt the story wasn't quite fully realized. There are some intriguing ideas -- around life, death, love, siblings, success, songwriting, caring -- but it's unclear what it all amounts to.

Still, despite a slow start, Cunningham's latest novel builds nicely and the threads do start to come together nicely in the last quarter of the book. Sadly, a Michael Cunningham novel only comes along once every few years, so it's disappointing when they don't all reach the heights that his previous work does. Definitely worth a read.
