あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.  

1914: young Anton Heideck has arrived in Vienna, eager to make his name as a journalist. While working part-time as a private tutor, he encounters Delphine, a woman who mixes startling candour with deep reserve. Entranced by the light of first love, Anton feels himself blessed. Until his country declares war on hers. 

1927: for Lena, life with a drunken mother in a small town has been impoverished and cold. She is convinced she can amount to nothing until a young lawyer, Rudolf Plischke, spirits her away to Vienna. But the capital proves unforgiving. Lena leaves her metropolitan dream behind to take a menial job at the snow-bound sanatorium, the Schloss Seeblick. 

1933: still struggling to come terms with the loss of so many friends on the Eastern Front, Anton, now an established writer, is commissioned by a magazine to visit the mysterious Schloss Seeblick. In this place of healing, on the banks of a silvery lake, where the depths of human suffering and the chances of redemption are explored, two people will see each other as if for the first time. 

Sweeping across Europe as it recovers from one war and hides its face from the coming of another, Snow Country is a landmark novel of exquisite yearnings, dreams of youth and the sanctity of hope. In elegant, shimmering prose, Sebastian Faulks has produced a work of timeless resonance.

Terrible... uninteresting characters; story line tried to bring in the war without affect giving little effect.

Narrator was awful as she made anton sound like an old man. Hard to distinguish the females fro each other. Very little description of characters... flat all around

Disappointed

This is not Faulkes' best work and the audiobook is further undermined by strangely mannered narration.

Location

Precision of details gave enormous pleasure and prompted recall of encountering that area.Plot was ok but female characters unconvincing.Philosophy and psychological stuff sadly tedious.

Moments of brilliance, but generally tough going.

My least favourite Audible book to date. Interesting, but very long drawn out .

Beautiful writing

As always, Sebastian Faulkes writes wonderfully well. A tender love story with much of his philosophy wrapped into it. As I was listening I thought how extraordinary that he has such an understanding of those war years in all his books - as though he lived them. Then there are whole pieces that he writes about reincarnation or collective conciousness. Maybe that's a hint?
Also wonderfully read.

Glad I read Human Traces first

Beautifully narrated and a great follow on from Human Traces. Would stand alone as a great story though.
