WHICH HAS TO DO WITH A MIRROR AND ITS FRAGMENTS 

Now then! We will begin. When the story is done you shall know a great deal more than you do now. 
He was a terribly bad hobgoblin, a goblin of the very wickedest sort and, in fact, he was the devil himself. One day the devil was in a very good humour because he had just finished a mirror which had this peculiar power: everything good and beautiful that was reflected in it seemed to dwindle to almost nothing at all, while everything that was worthless and ugly became most conspicuous and even uglier than ever. In this mirror the loveliest landscapes looked like boiled spinach, and the very best people became hideous, or stood on their heads and had no stomachs. Their faces were distorted beyond any recognition, and if a person had a freckle it was sure to spread until it covered both nose and mouth. 
‘That’s very funny!’ said the devil. If a good, pious thought passed through anyone’s mind, it showed in the mirror as a carnal grin, and the devil laughed aloud at his ingenious invention. 
All those who went to the hobgoblin’s school – for he had a school of his own – told everyone that a miracle had come to pass. Now, they asserted, for the very first time you could see how the world and its people really looked. They scurried about with the mirror until there was not a person alive nor a land on earth that had not been distorted.

Revue de presse

"P. J. Lynch's lovely illustrations call on all sorts of styles, quoting Rackham and Dulac and Rockwell." --"The Guardian"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing, and Glad It's Back! 19 avril 2016
Par Jennifer Roush - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
One of my all-time favorite novels. The Snow Queen is a great story, if you want to read it at that level, with a steady quick pace and just one twist after another that loops into a seamless ending. But if you want to dig deeper, the book has a lot to say about love, civilization, politics, justice, and how it is that we come to be who we are. There's a great nature-vs-nurture debate in the characters. I love it because, like Dune, it's a book I can read over and over again and still find something I didn't quite see before.

Joan D. Vinge is an amazing author, who battled some serious traumatic head injury that put her career on hold. But I hope for and continue to wait for more books from this talented author (This series, of which this is the first book, has at least three other books to it). I make sure she is part of my personal library wherever I go.

This book was out of print for a while, and I am glad it is back on the shelves for another generation.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not as epic as I thought it would be but pretty good nonetheless 20 juillet 2010
Par Atnier Rodriguez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As soon as somebody mentions that a sci-fi product is epic, I immediately imagine it would be something akin to the Star Wars universe. This book does not contain lightsabers, spaceship battles or a cantina full of weird creatures. However, it does sell you the concept of their world and its universe pretty well. You get everything the writer is telling you and most importantly, you understand it. This is not a story full of action, it is a character-driven novel. There are moments of tension and there are wrongs that must be punished and set right, but the action is ultimately on the light side.

The main characters are likeable for the most part, although they do share their darker sides at one point or the other. The main villain is not cackling evil, but a puppeteer and control freak. Almost every character is human and relatable with only a few exceptions, to the point that this book can appeal to people that are more into fantasy than sci-fi like me. There will not be prolonged dialogues about reactors, core units or timeshifts and wormholes. Whatever alien technology the writer concocts, it is laid out simple enough as befits the main character, who is not tech-savvy. The plot is interesting and there are slight twists here and there. The reader will find no archaic or complicated vocabulary so despite the book's width, it should be a quick read.

What's it all mean? It means THE SNOW QUEEN is a very good book, easy to read, allowing full immersion into the universe. It is not hardcore sci-fi, so every reader will enjoy the literary journey. However, after reading it, I have no interest in continuing the saga with the sequels because this story goes full circle and everything is tied up nicely. Which by the way, it's a minor flaw to me because everything is easily solved towards the end of the book, and I mean everything. When the plots start to get resolved, the way the writer does it depletes any tension from the reader about what's left to be handled because you already know the way it is going to go. That doesn't mean is bad, it just feels a bit old-fashioned.

So, go ahead and check this book out and maybe you'll be interested in continuing the book cycle. For me, I was satisfied with just this one, and have no reason to delve deeper. It just worked out that way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Ilustrated Edition 9 août 2009
Par Italy 78 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a big fan of Candlewick Press since they have the most beautiful illustrated children books. This is the main reason why I decided to purchase this illustrated edition of the Snow Queen and I am so very glad I did so. The illustrations in this book amazing and, together with the quality of the book itself (which is always the case with Candlewick Press) and the wonderful story, they make this book a great buy. The print is nice and big and while it is probably not for a very young reader, I would say that an early independent reader can handle this book, especially since the rich illustrations help keep the reader's attention on the book and not get discouraged. I highly recommend this book also for young children: My six year old loves the story and the pics and will happily sit through the whole book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A mystical masterpiece and literary treat 16 décembre 2009
Par Andre R. Hill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Ever since I read Hans Christian Anderson's superlative fairy tale,I fell in love with it.And without anybody telling me,I immediately recognised from where C.S. Lewis got the idea of the cruel white witch in his Chronicles of Narnia.Andreson's tale is magical,mystical,mythopoetic and essentially spiritual.I have come to believe that fairytales are the most adult literature that anyone can read,for they are true to sublime reality.I felt lost in the world of the snow queen and could feel every vibration from the pages seeping into me.Also the graphic illustrations which accompany this edition of Andreson's tale enhances the narrative tenfold.Children and adults will enjoy every sentence and every picture in this wonderful book.
