Read full description of the books The Ice Palace: Short Story:3.5 - I like Fitzgerald's style. I wondered if the people who wrote the screenplay Sweet Home Alabama were inspired by this short story. The story reflects the tension that remained between North and South U.S. many years after the war. A Southern girl falls for a Northerner, and tells the guys in town they're great but not what she's looking for. My favorite part showed tension building up between the two as the guy made mean comments about Southerners and made her mad. I liked seeing her mad because she seemed so pacifistic, and, in all honesty, kind of dumb. I'm not sure that she was more laid back and mellow than dumb, but it was evident these two were different. He is business minded and quick witted and she wanted to go build a snowman. I liked her more than him, however. She struggles deeply with her love of the South and is forced to a decision in an ice palace. The end made me laugh. For me, it was a happy ending. I love when people stop running from themselves and instead embrace who they really are. The populous may want you to be a certain way, but you won't be happy until you embrace you and who/ what you are rather than letting the world fit you in its mold.
