5.0 out of 5 stars Cold Earth, 3 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cold Earth (Kindle Edition)
Six people are on an archeological dig in an isolated part of Greenland. Before the dig even starts there is a sense of unease, with a media panic about a pandemic said to be spreading across the globe. We hear the story from all the members points of view, but largely from that of Nina and Ruth, who have an immediate antipathy for each other. Nina is an Oxford scholar, with a love of food and her partner David, and a line of casual putdowns aimed at America in general and Ruth in particular. Ruth is a calm, controlled and attractive woman, who is battling her own demons and has no patience with, what she sees, as Nina's attention seeking and paranoia. Nina, meanwhile, is beginning to unsettle the group with nightmares and talk of ghosts. Then the internet connection dies and there is the added worry that the group will not be able to leave. Even worse is the fear that Nina is not imagining things...

This is a really excellent novel, with fantastic characters and a real sense of being there it is so descriptive. This was Sarah Moss's first novel and I am glad to say that her second novel, Night Waking, is even better. Read it and enjoy.
