Winterkill review Ê eBook or Kindle ePUB Kate A. Boorman ✓ 3 free download Nothing but danger the other side of the Wall and the community must prepare for the freezing winterkill that comes every yearBut Emmeline struggles to be obedient under the Counc. 25 starsThe Village meets The Forest of Hands and Teeth meets The Hallowed OnesWinterkill is a very atmospheric and lovely written story that though it has plenty of tension and suspense feels long winded and loses its effect halfway through the book because of the slow progression of the few events that take place in the novel Ultimately although it does have a couple of interesting new aspects to it Winterkill is basically just like every other standard YA dystopian novel out there All the technical aspects of Winterkill are impressively well crafted The author managed to infuse the novel with a very oppressive atmospherea sort of dreamy uality into the world and even a couple of well written exhilarating scenes of suspense The author did a wonderful job at setting the world but there s very little in the way of explanations and backstory The story of this world is made up of vague myths which works in favor of the mysticism surrounding the village but leaves a lot to be desired in terms of world building You don t know where this village is you don t even know what period it is You don t know anything about it if it s an average Amish like community in modern times or if it s a post apocalyptic refuge or even if all this takes place in the past It does lend a lot of mystery to the village but I kept expecting a bit mostly because since the nature of this community is not the mystery all of that gets pointedly ignored This novel is extremely slow story in general I normally wouldn t mind so much but most of the events in the novel go in a sort of repetitive loop and it isn t until the end that the chain breaks and something else something interesting finally happens By then at least to me it was a bit too late This is not a particularly long novel but it feels far longer due to the slightly stagnant plot of the first two thirds of the novel The general plot is also extremely familiar and follows the safe pre established path of almost every single generic dystopia out there I had a very hard time engaging with Emmeline mostly due to the fact that she was familiar in every single aspect She s the typical Mary Sue special snowflake YA heroine that allows people to push her and mistreat her to which she does have a reason but then she would selectively show a backbone only when she didn t need it or to people who didn t deserve it and that excuse would fall through a girl who goes thinking about a gorgeous guy she just met all the time and waits around for a guy to save her The best Emmeline had going for her was her curiosity and her thoughtful nature but her narrative style gets repetitive after a while and is wasted on the insta love She does grow in the novel that much is true and she learns to be brave but with the slightly anti climactic events at the end all that s sort of moot pointMoreover Emmeline was unbelievably outstandingly appallingly selfish and did a lot of things out of absolute self interest Even towards the end when she learns the truth behind her community when she realizes what s at stake it all comes down to her and what she wants and how if she doesn t do this or someone doesn t help her she won t get what she wants She reminded me way too much of Mary from The Forest of Hands and Teeth except that Mary had no problem admitting and embracing her selfishness whereas Emmeline is constantly portrayed as a selfless martyr Emmeline used the people around her the people she claimed to love and forced them to help her with her stupid plans or to keep dangerous secrets with very little explanation but then pouted and whined when they very reasonably told her that it just couldn t be done She wasn t irritating but her voice and the way she did things so impulsively got tiring very soonMost of the characters in the book were there to be used as props by Emmeline and lacked characterization beyond what they could provide to Emmeline and her needs The main love interest is included in his group He s the generic gorgeous understanding but mysterious boy from every book ever who falls for the main character for no discernible reason Lust certainly that I could believe between those two but the degree of love they claimed to feel for each other Personally I never saw it there because they were never shown to share any particularly deep connection over anything not for lack of trying on the author s part Another characterization that bothered me a bit was Emmeline s best friend who happened to be gay I completely understand that in as isolated and pious a community as Emmeline s she would try to understand her friend s situation in whatever way was easier for her but I didn t feel particularly comfortable with her saying that he was gay because he had two souls and that it was his woman soul making him love men The connotations behind that are slightly problematic Winterkill is undeniably well written and atmospheric but a slow moving plot and a main character I could not connect with made it really hard for me to engage with any aspect of the story It s a lovely book really but if I cannot care for it in any way then the best writing in the world cannot make up for that
