About this deal

Zu Beginn lernt man zunächst Clover und ihre Arbeit kennen und wie es dazu kam, dass sie den Film über Kit drehen möchte. It was a compelling story told with a lot of human insight into what shapes and motivates these pro athletes.

Problem is, they aren't exactly friends, in fact, they are a lot closer at being enemies than friends. Nur leider hätte ich mir mehr Zwischenmenschliches, viel mehr Romantik und etwas fürs Herz gewünscht.

The story can feel a little lacklustre at times – Clover has to try and wear Kit down, and she is a determined young woman – but comes into its own towards the end. Kit Foley seems to have been involved in a surfing accident that left champion Cory Allbright disabled and unable to take part in any further surfing championships, in fact depriving him totally of his livelihood. The sport side of things did not interest me a bit, so the fact that I held on to it all through this story and was still entertained speaks volumes about the character relationships. Sehr schade, denn Kit aber auch die Romanze hätten viel mehr Potential gehabt, wenn man ihnen mehr Raum gegeben hätte. I went into this story not knowing what to expect from her Christmas release, but from page one, the story begins to weave.

There is, as always, a little bit of mystery behind the story as well, and I greatly enjoyed discovering the clues and solving the questions. The setting itself, set mainly in the Austrian Alps, sounded beautiful, and even though I know nothing about snowboarding, I really enjoyed the storyline. And Clover is the one tasked to document his journey now, all whilst she is struggling to hide her personal bias. Schon beim ersten Blick darauf, wollte ich mich mit einem Kakao und einer Decke auf meiner Couch einkuscheln.La caratterizzazione dei personaggi avviene in virtù di uno show, don’t tell magnifico e dai dialoghi carichi di significato. A gripping and unusual story set in the Austrian Alps, following the life of surfer and snowboarder Kit Foley, his upbringing, dedication to the sport, and lovelife, as told by film director Clover Phillips as she tries to uncover the truth of an accident to a surfing friend Cory Albright. We get to meet her in the spotlight and outside of it, and find out two different Clovers for a little while.

The setting in the Alps is beautifully atmospheric and subtle, yet so important for the vibe, loved it.This story began as a seed ten years ago when Swan watched ‘The Crash Reel’ based on Kevin Pearce’s snowboarding accident while training for the 2010 Winter Olympics. She has her sights set on Kit and wants to make a film about his version of events, but there is huge animosity between them and he is not inclined to make it easy for her and her team. Jis - banglentininkas, snieglentininkas ir tas, kurį visi kaltina dėl įvykusios nelaimės, papasakotos ir filme. The setting imagery was, as always, amazing and I enjoyed the little peek into the professional sports world.

War dann aber überraschend gut, schön geschrieben und ein Buch, das ich einfach sehr gern gelesen hab. Kit has been accused of breaching Cory’s priority on a specific wave, blocking his line and effectively forcing him under the water. There is no doubt that they detest each other but the tension is complicated by a burgeoning mutual attraction.It's dislike at first sight but boundaries become dangerously blurred as Clover finds herself drawn into Kit's power games. The surfer blamed for the accident is Kit Foley, who is trying to reinvent himself and his career, this time as a snow boarder, and is Clover’s next project. Un connubio esplosivo da godersi nelle giornate più fredde, perché se una tazza di tè è capace di scaldare il corpo, questo libro potrebbe scaldarvi anche il cuore.
