Whiteout by Ken Follett

To many of us, Christmas is the same good old time in the year when we gather with our family to enjoy the same old tradition. But to the imagination of this book's author, Christmas can be the perfect time for all hells to break loose. During their family gathering for Christmas, the characters in this book all got stung emotionally, punched physically and they almost got wiped off the face of the earth. It was interesting to read how the author created a story by combining terriorism, Christmas, family feuds, bio-hazzard, home invasion, and romance. It's a story where everything just went terribly wrong for one single family. There were some humors during the ordeal that the characters went through and there were lots of chaos towards the end of the book where everybody was trapped in the same space, confronting each other, fighting for their dear life. The book was a little slow and boring to me in the first half, but it became more interesting in the last half.
