Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved the story, but not the style I was so looking forward to this book after hearing about it on CBC Books before it was published. I even pre-ordered it! It was a quick read and an interesting, totally believable, near-futuristic story. Though the story itself was great, I kept getting jarred out of the story by the writing itself, which (in my opinion) needed another round of heavy editing. I was surprised and pretty disappointed that I didn't enjoy it more. I really really really wanted to! I would still recommend it, especially if you liked The Marrow Thieves, but this one left me somewhat unfulfilled. (However, that won't stop me from reading the author's next book.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fantastic addition to Canadian literature Actually, 4.5 stars List of Ingredients • An isolated Anishinaabe community • Proud, industrious people • Disenchanted people • Winter coming • Rug pulled from under them • Agent provocateur It takes more than the right ingredients to make a story rich and deep, and this is exactly what author Waubgeshig Rice accomplishes with Moon of the Crusted Snow. The situations feel imminently plausible while the main protagonist, Evan Whitesky, stands for the ordinary Jo who tries to do his best for his loved ones even when faced with the most trying of circumstances. The narrative proceeds in chronological order, making the novel accessible to as large an audience as possible. The author uses a light touch in eliciting white-person’s guilt. His message about how my forebears mistreated his forebears saddens me, deeply, yet leaves the door open for my understanding, my empathy and, I hope, our reconciliation. I was given an advance reading copy of Moon of the Crusted Snow by publisher ECW Press in exchange for posting an honest review online. In summary: A fantastic addition to Canadian literature and possibly a new high school reading list classic! Here’s cheering you on, Waubgeshig Rice!
