The long winter months have turned bitterly and deadly cold. Blizzards, ice, and snow cover the world and force the majority of the surviving population to take cover indoors in a long coma, dead to the world, inside nuclear silos and hotels designed to keep people safe during the dangerous winter. Only a few foolhardy souls stay awake for the winter. New Winter Console Charlie Worthing, a deformed and smart young man is tackling his first winter and sleep mysteries are everywhere. The line between sleeping and waking has never been more blurred and Hybertech, the worlds largest coma inducing corporation, is up to no good. Fforde is witty and dry as he takes us through a futuristic world where myths and dreams can come true in winter. This novel is a great mix of adventure, humor, and sci-fi paced perfectly to make the 400 page novel flow.

I always know that Jasper Fforde will take the world I know and stretch it in new directions, and yet it’s always a gorgeous surprise to see how naturally he does it. With his trademark wit and humor, Fforde gives us a frozen, dangerous world and an imperfect but earnest hero bound to protect the Hibernating populace but caught between a duelling pair of powerful women in the mysterious Sector Twelve.
