In a nutshell: She wanted nothing more than to cling to him while he had four years of hurt and loneliness, but she could not.

This is what happens when you take books on impulse. I liked the cover of the book -I must admit-; and there was some nostalgia for old magazines like Bianca; But the plot is incredibly trite. And had some rare language turns: He's always been his country and his family first. (?) It even sounds strange to me.

There are several phrases that cut the impulse, it lacks fluency to the story. And ... well, I did not feel connected to the characters. It's all tremendously predictable, the two are good, there are reasons and blahblah.

Not even the dog-slege could save this.

-The salvageable: various comments about climate change in Alaska, the lack of cold in the winters and disappearance of snow, which is representing a short-term change of life.

En resumen: She wanted nothing more than to cling to him while he erased four years of hurt and loneliness, but she couldn’t.

Esto es lo que pasa cuando sacas libros por impulso. Me gustó la portada del libro debo admitirlo y hubo algo de nostalgia por viejas revistas a lo Bianca; pero la trama es increiblemente trillada. Y algunos giros idiomaticos raros: He’s always been his country and his family first. Hasta a mí me suena extraño.

Hay varias frases que cortan el impulso, le falta fluidez al relato. Y... bueno, no me sentí conectada con los personajes. Es todo tremendamente predecible, los dos son buenos, hay razones y chan.

-Lo rescatable: comentarios varios acerca del cambio climático en Alaska, la falta de frio en los inviernos y desaparición de la nieve, lo cual esta representando un cambio de vida a corto plazo.

Sigo encontrando sumamente extraño que un Sheik celebre navidad...
