5.0 out of 5 stars Bleak, brutal, hallucinatory and very, very odd, 9 Feb 2009
This review is from: To the White Sea (Delta World War II Library) (Paperback)
I read this book about a year ago and, well, it just hasn't gone away. As that man Nabokov (well, Humbert Humbert) put it, "You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style", and To The White Sea is both coldly beautifully and beautifully chilling. By the end it has even taken off into the realms of the surreal. You know the way some novels just stay with you... this one refuses to leave. which is quite scary when you think about it.

I read the novel a few years back - when the Coens were going to adapt it into a movie, it's stayed with me too.
