Snowpiercer (Volume 1)


Final Summary:


Hours to Read: less than 1


Sex: YES. It is a graphic novel, and it is graphic. Thankfully they didn't go full sex, but there are fully naked women (everything shown) and naked men (shown only stomach up). They show characters making out, prostitutes, people naked in bed together, orgies, hint at and imply rape, and talk about how everything is about sex on the train.


Language: YES. The f-bomb is used repeatedly throughout on top of everything else. (It doesn't help that the people most often talked about are called "tail-f***ers" and those that support them are called "tail-f***er lovers.")


Violence: Yes. Someone gets shot, people are shown fighting and dying. One man is shown hanging from a noose.


Thoughts: I have to say, this book was a huge disappointment. I had an idea of what the book was about from the one preview I saw of the movie, but I tried to not let that bias my view going into the book (especially since the book is usually better anyway). I tried to look past the language, but then the sex was so over the top. I also felt like, while the story might have been intriguing, the author(s) missed almost every opportunity to provide tension and up the ante.


In the end, I couldn't get past the language, sex, and poor tension development.

1 out of 5 stars and I will not be finishing the series.
