You guys know how much I love books about Antarctica, right? Well...not so much this one. While there were some ideas here that I really liked, I didn't feel like any of them were executed well enough to actually work well. There are some interesting hints that Colin's relationships with his half-brother Andrew and their father Jack are somewhat rocky, but it's not well-explained. And I feel like Lerangis tried to tell this story using too many different points of view, and it ended up feeling really unfocused. He should have just stuck to switching back and forth between Andrew and Colin instead of also throwing Jack and Phillip and Kosta into the mix. And then Andrew and Jack's team are in a desperate fight for survival, but somehow...none of it really comes across as particularly urgent. The whole story just felt flat to me. I'm skipping part two.
