Snowman is one of the most heartbreaking characters I have encountered in fiction. Within the first few chapters, with no knowledge of Snowman's history or even personality, I felt such pity for him. He can do nothing but waste away in his loneliness and gloom. While the character of Jimmy is hardly a vision of integrity, he is a good person. He is a confused, insecure man whose soul has been scarred since the day his mother disappeared.
