Well, I found Wintertown to be fun. It reminded me a lot of The Big Crunch. However I found that the characters didn't really hold my attention, mostly because there was no tension. I cared more about Lucy then I did about Evan, but overall I felt that there wasn't really anything there that was pushing me to read more. I would recommend it if you want something fun to read that doesn't require you to stay awake at night desperately flipping the pages.
