Sun At Midnight
(Rosie Thomas)

Some authors go to great lengths to research their novels and Rosie Thomas is very obviously one of them. She visited the Antarctic herself to do the research for this story, and the way she writes reflects her dedication to her work. The clarity and depth which are present in her description of the sights, sounds, feelings, and intuitive processes which go hand in hand with the territory, would not have been possible without this first hand experience. The atmosphere builds quite slowly, but never boringly, throughout the opening chapters, when the reader is introduced to the main characters and their reasons for taking the trip to the Antarctic. Past histories and family heritage are very much an integral part of the involvement of the story. At times during the early days at the research station in Kandahar the pace is also a little slow, but just as complacency is about to set in, the narrative begins to gather pace and intrigue to keep the pages turning and the midnight oil burning, until the thrilling climax is reached. Several surprises are in store that are not telegraphed in the précis on the cover, which is a great plus compared with many synopses which provide too much information, leaving little to both speculation and the imagination. This is a love story with bite and an emotional roller coaster that tugs at the heartstrings. It contains excitement, suspense, geography, geology and biology all rolled into one and bound with punchy, first class narrative. It also incorporates a lot of relevant scientific information, which enhances the story and is provided in simplistic enough terms to be palatable to the uninitiated. All in all a tale not to be missed.
