    1. I know my reading of Snow Man is shaped by my love of Chute s work as well as contemporary events She s long been aligned with the not right left militia wing and I think this offshoot of The School on Heart s Content Road is a worthy book.The characters of Robert Drummond is well shaped and clear Chute succeeds best with him, I think, in terms of capturing the frustration of those who work their asses off and yet are still left behind to flounder in the wake of the rich and contemptuous who ben [...]


    2. This book was a real disappointment I hated it, but not because of its politics I ll admit that I don t sympathize with the book s clear political bent But than that, I feel that the author s political worldview has driven her to write a book that is beyond her capacities as a writer the richness and realism of her first novel has been sacrificed to tell a story she seems to need to tell, and while I suppose I respect her need to do so, the result s simply not a compelling read I read two Chute [...]


    3. Snow Man is one of the worst books I ve ever read Still From a profile I once wrote of Carolyn Chute The critics adored her debut, The Beans of Egypt, Maine, in 1985, while subsequent reaction was decidedly mixed The New York Times called her third novel, Merry Men, bad, while also naming it a notable book of the year for 1994 The paper described her latest work, Snow Man, as absurd and rather ugly The Houston Chronicle thought it plainly sophomoric, while a reviewer in Cleveland labeled it one [...]


    4. I read this book very carefully, since everywhere I turned I seemed to read how the brilliant Carolyn Chute was pretty much ostracized from the literary community after it was published My only complaint is that I wish the characters were developed I think readers may have understood what she was trying to communicate if they had been Robert for instance, was beautifully drawn, especially in an era of growing discontent as symbolized by the Occupy movement Of course, this book was published ov [...]


    5. This is a book I had on my shelf forever before reading it and quite truthfully, I preferred it gathering dust.It is a fairy tale of the right wing militia The hero assassinates an evil senator and is hailed as a hero even while he is being hunted by the FBI.He has been injured and he finds safe haven in the home of another senator He is harbored by the senators wife and daughter and they both lust after him.His cause is weakly stated, but I suppose the good of the book comes from quite possibly [...]


    6. I could not be a bigger fan of Carolyn Chute s work, but this one had some major flaws It is not the political stance of the work that detracted for me, but the massive improbabilities of the plot Although Chute s remarkable prose is evident in this novel, it was seriously underwritten, with a few ill conceived conceptual choices So very glad I didn t read this novel first, as it would have prevented me from picking up any other Carolyn Chute work and I would have missed out on the amazing Merry [...]


    7. What do you get when you cross a delusional domestic terrorist seeking refuge with delusional, crazy, rich women This book I did like the writing style, choppy, slightly crazy fits right in with the characters The story line is too far fetched though and does not in any way resemble a reality that could be realized It was fun though.


    8. I wasn t entirely sure what I thought of this book It isabout a militia member who kills a U.S senator and goes tobed with the guy s wife and daughterCarolyn Chute s politics are eccentric She had formeda somewhat left leaning militia grouphalf in jest.


    9. my first Carolyn Chute It s a slight book, and a sort of preposterous story, and I m impressed She s a really clever, entertaining, pleasurable writer Want to try by her Great little story Almost like a play.


    10. Pretty good start, pretty good ending, but the middle was repetitive and wanting Worth reading at least the first few chapters because the political setting could have been written today.
