Can you explain me the meaning "snuck up on somebody' ?

The beauty and power of Canada snuck up on me. Hard to believe since my expectations were sky high going in. Ford takes his time in this novel and I didn't immediately warm up to the rhythm of his first-person narrative. Dell Parson's is looking back on events that happened when he was 15-year old boy and he tells you immediately that there will be a bank robbery and some murders in his story. It felt like the robbery was a long time coming.
Thanks in addvance.
