Dark Matter


Ghost stories are perfect for winter and Dark Matter by Michelle Paver even more so, as it is set in the first half of the 20th century, during an arctic expedition, all that chill and never ending dark nights are a perfect foil for something creepy to happen, add to the fact that ‘something’ is happening to remove the expedition members away from the expedition, eventually leaving just one . . .

This book was ok, it was creepy, atmospheric and had me ‘there’ in the Arctic hut with the sole remaining member of the expedition but I struggled with empathy for the main character and that was a bit distracting as I wanted to scream through large chunks of the book “Call for help! Go home!”.
