1913: three men bound not by friendship, but by an intense dependence founded on survival - will be immortalised by their decision to volunteer to scout out a series of uncharted and unknown islands in the Antarctic, a big, indifferent kingdom. 2013: three researchers with their own reasons for being far from home - set out on a field trip to the same ancient lumps of rock and snow, home to nothing but colonies of penguins and seals. Under the harsh ultraviolet light, as all colours bleach out, and the world of simple everyday pleasures recedes, they unknowingly begin to mirror the expedition of 100 years ago.

The novel provides two stories of Antarctic expeditions in which the characters' motivations and decisions parallel each other. Rather than being written in alternating chapters, it may have been more effective as two consecutive narratives. One theme is the way in which history is written and true stories hidden; another is how we make decisions under extreme conditions. An enjoyable read that is very good at evoking the Antarctic environment.
