Nigel Gordon Posted December 17, 2021 Report Share Posted December 17, 2021 This story by Peter Conrad on Castle Roland starts out exactly as one would expect. Two men stuck in a cabin in the mountains. The, as about 50% of stories with this start we find that they used to be best friends who drifted apart at school. It is then that the story takes a twist from the trope. Whilst hiking in the woods they come across a party of kids who have got lost in the snow storm. Conrad's development of the story is interesting and unusual. It is well worth reading, though be warned it is a long read. Personally I would have split it up into four or six chapters instead of what Conrad has delivered. It is, though, worth the effort to read.
