The Snow Hunters is about Yohan, a North Korean War Refugee who is arriving to live in Brazil. The story goes back and forth in time as the memories ebb and flow. This is a quiet haunting Hemingway type of book.
The author captures the mood and the memories in this elegant novel. This book definitely will not be for everyone but I thoroughly enjoyed this sparse novel even if the ending didn't live up to the rest of the book.
