On a frozen future Earth there is a train, a train that never stops running through the snow. On that train is the last life on Earth, human beings living in a classed society not unlike they lived in on Earth, for both the good and the completely horrible. One day, a man from the back of the train decides he’s done, and his choice will change life on the Snowpiercer forever.
Please note, this is a VERY adult graphic novel. Not for children. Or young adults. I was lucky enough to be handed a rather cleaned-up copy. The idea is compelling and imaginative — but the execution is so dark, violent and explicit. I appreciate a good revolution — how brave the leaders need to be, how grand their vision and willingness to die for a cause. Throw that onto a post-apocolypic snow train and there is a lot you can do with it. Did I love it? Not particularly. Was I intrigued enough to want to finish it? Yes.
Rated: DIRT unless you can find a copy like mine where your sister has used a Sharpie to give naked people some clothes and crossed out the dozens and dozens of “f” words and other bad language.
