    Growing up in Virginia's Allegheny Mountains, 11-year-old Charlie York lives at the foot of an endless peak called Angel's Rest, a place his momma told him angels rested before coming down to help folks. In 1967 his town was a poor boy's paradise...until a shotgun blast killed Charlie's father and put his mother on trial for murder.

    While this book is a bit predictable at times, it is a great story! Well written and enjoyable to listen to. The kind of book you want to be a true story. It feels like a true story. I am looking forward to more like it.

    This was a decent book (nothing special) until the end. It seemed to me that the author got bored or tired of writing and so simply ended it. Disappointing...

    Salvation and annihilation meet at one degree.One man's dream of providing clean drinking water for millions, tapped from the polar ice, sparks a conflict of humanity, science, big business, and environmental extremism. But no one can foresee the true danger hidden deep within the ice, an enemy more deadly than any could imagine, and an apocalyptic horror mankind may not survive.

    Cadmentr says: "Freezing Point will have your blood running cold"
    "predictable"
    Overall

    Very predictable, unrealistic, and not extremely imaginative...

    "wow"
    Overall

    At the end of this book, I was so filled with emotion I nearly cried. Not so much because of the story line, but because of the writing. Stephen King has reached an all time high with this one! What more can I say...
