A book about obsession and visions. It has a dreamlike quality to it and is a gentle read even if not all aspects are peaceful or gentle, its more the language is gentle. The imagery is wonderful the plot is slow (glacial?). I think I would have liked it a bit better with a bit more depth to the characters but in a sense they are secondary to the glacier itself and the secrets it holds.

I really liked the Dr's obsession with the glacier and his measuring and waiting for it to creep forward and set the Dr and the angel free.
