-Thriller de aventuras, acción y poca densidad.-

Género. Novela.

Lo que nos cuenta. A finales de los años treinta Owen Hart es un piloto norteamericano experto en vuelos bajo condiciones climáticas muy duras en los cielos de Alaska. Tras un vuelo especialmente accidentado, Hart recibe una oferta algo misteriosa de un representante del gobierno alemán, Otto Kohl, que está relacionada con algún tipo de expedición a la Antártida.

Molte volte si pensa che quando si voglia leggere una buona storia d'avventura con cui rilassarsi e passare qualche ora di svago ci si debba affidare a grandi nomi come Cussler, Rollins, Smith, solo per citarne alcuni dei più recenti.

Invece si possono trovare altrettanto godibili narrazioni con autori meno conosciuti, come questo Dietrich che è stata una bella sorpresa. La storia è godibile, i personaggi reggono e l'ambientazione è molto ben descritta nelle parti che si svolgono in Antartide (pr
No Remorse
This has your typical cartoonish Nazis where they are either really evil or dumb which I found pretty annoying. The author does have a very detailed way of writing and describing scenery. Very nautical book with lots of sailing on ships, subs, and lifeboats. Here is a brief sample:

"The Germans were in a realm of lunar light so intense that icebergs glowed like the white mountains of the moon. The milky way was as palpable as a silk ribbon, stars and moon so reflective in the sea that there was a
Todos los días aprende uno cosas nuevas acerca de los Nazis, por ejemplo ayer leí que Hitler era vegetariano y algo que muy poca gente sabe es que en los años de 1938-1939
Herman Goring envió una expedición en un barco llamado Schwabenland a las ignotas regiones de la Antártida a efecto de reclamar algunas tierras para el imperio alemán. A resultas de esta expedición se exploraron tierras nuevas con dos hidroaviones en la zona de la Queen Maud Land, los nombres dados a esas regiones aun son util
I had to sit on this review for a while. It is an oddly structured book and it gave me pause as I was reading. Broken into three parts, each part is its own little adventure that almost seemed like it could have been a 3 book trilogy. Immediately springing to mind is the very basic and loose structure of Star Wars episodes 1-3...We meet and learn the backstory of a main character and the first part ends with a bit of adventure. Part two is all a love story and how the main character is trying to ...more

I went through the first part of this book wanting to rate it somewhere between 3* and 4*. Then, I ended up wanting to rate it between 4* and 5*. It doesn't get the 5* because the second part is way better then the first - in fact, we need to get through the first 100 pages or so, and then it starts to get good - and then it gets better :-)
The author took way too much time to establish the Owen Hart character, but the rest of the book was very good. A great novel, great story on an excellent env
Basado en un hecho real, la imaginación del autor nos lleva a un interesante expedición por la antartida donde los nazis descubren un arma que pudo haber marcado el rumbo de la guerra a su favor. La historia al principio es algo floja pero luego da un giro interesante que despierta la curiosidad. * spoiler * Lo malo es que tiene una marcada influencia hollywoodesca donde el americano es el bueno que se queda con la chica y rescata al mundo.
Nice fast-paced read
I read reviews that sounded like this author was in the same vein as James Rollins. It started out okay, but half way into the book it turned into a romance novel. I have nothing against romances, if that's what you like, but it's not my thing. I was very disappointed in the turn of genre, but finished the book anyway - hoping that it would get better. Ehhh.....

Mediocre, de sèrie B, quasi es podria dir. Sense cap ritme i amb una trama que es veu venir des del principi. L'autor ha volgut fer un combinat a base d'història i pel·lícula d'aventures amb un resultat tan pobre com els personatges, que semblen trets dels motlles més clàssics.
OK read from the author of the Ethan Gage series...a littler more modern as Dietrich gives a thriller based on a Nazi expedition to Antarctica and the threat of Germany developing a bio-weapon of mass destruction to end the threat of the Allies...Only an OK page-turner
Janice Kenefick
A WWII thriller with all the right elements to make it an enjoyable read. It has an exotic Antarctic locale, a forbidden romance and hair-raising escapades - all to destroy a biological weapon that could turn the tide of the war in the Nazi’s favour.

An interesting novel traveling from Antarctica to WWII Germany. It has lots of intrigue and a plot that keeps adding twists.
I am enjoying all these books by WD. Ice Reich is the first, and not as good as the later ones. Entertaining historical fiction.
predictable ,lame sounds like one of em mills and boons
BORING - I don't know why I finished it.
A very good thriller, not unlike Follett.
