When I start reading Whiteout I thought with what this book will keep my attention with the ice, cold Antarctic. But my curiosity was stronger and I have no regrets that I read the book till the end.
The story is about Angel Smith, a chef in the research station in the South Pol. Her summer shift is over and she suppose to leave. The night before Angel and the summer crew was leaving she wanted to remmember that night. She ask Ford Cooper to dance, but the “ice man” said no. The next day she stay trapped in the ice with Ford Cooper and evil men who want to kill them.
I like the author writing style because it makes me read and imagine those vast place covered with ice.
“Nothing lived here. No birds, no insects, not a solitary penguin on this most remote part of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. Just three hundred and sixty degrees of sky and ice—blue and white—fighting for dominance. Not to mention a sun that played its strange game of hopscotch, bouncing along the rim of the sky but never quite setting. Almost sunset, sunrise, almost sunset, sunrise.”
Characters are believable and still keep them on my mind real and vivid.
I like Angel her tenaciousness and surviving instincts.
I would like to read more about this man, Eric Ford’ s brother:
“Retired Navy SEAL Eric Cooper wasn’t the type of man to ask for permission before acting. Nor was he the type to ask for forgiveness. He just did what needed to be done. It had been his job, once. Now it was his personal mission.”
“Oh hell,” she said this time, because being dependent on anyone rankled. But liking him rankled even more. And then, because it felt stupidly good to just say it aloud, she whispered it on repeat over and over again until the words lost their meaning.”
The best quote:
“You’re my home. And I want to be yours. Will you let me be that? Can I be the place you come home to?”
