Out Of The Ice
3 journalers for this copy...
This freezing and lonely landscape should be uninhabited, and yet she increasingly comes to believe she is not alone.
As she comes face to face with the dark side of humanity, she also discovers a legacy of love, and the meaning of family.
If only she can make it out of the ice alive...
The cool cover caught my attention and it made curious to read the story. I like to read stories that take place in the polar regions.
Both thrilling and interesting. On several occasions I broke off my reading to check up on things mentioned in the story, like the history of Norwegian whaling stations in the Antarctic. I checked maps and actually found a street view on one of them. The village in the book is a fictional one, but it's based on an historical whaling village Grytviken in King Edwards Cove on South Georgia Island.
The book surprised me a number of times. I made guesses on which turns the story would take, and then I was surprised when it went off in another direction.
This book will be travelling around as bookring!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Happy reading all of you, and stay cool! (Sorry, I'll see myself out.)
Boken kom så perfekt även om den fick ta en extra tur!
Håller på att installera mig i Björkhagen, lämnar mitt hus i min sons och hans familj vård och flyttat till en bekvämare tillvaro 😉
