Brilliant escapism

I had not read this author before but can't wait to read another,In a way its a love story but its mostly a story of how a clever but cautious woman finds that she is more resourceful and strong witted than she could have believed.Because it is is set in the Antartic there is a great feeling of suspense and you feel that you are there with her trying to come to terms with living in close quarters with strangers.IThe narration is great and she does a good job of differiniating the characters.I did not want to do anything else but listen and am brokenhearted that I have had to leave Alice...

Surprised by a great story in an unlikely setting

What made the experience of listening to The Sun at Midnight the most enjoyable?

Characters I wanted to travel with. I'm not a great lover of tales of extreme adventure but this was about the human drama and the challenges of the Antarctic were knitted into the narrative. Couldn't stop listening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sun at Midnight?

The birth of little Meg

Have you listened to any of Rula Lenska’s other performances? How does this one compare?

She tackles a range of voices well, but the masculine ones seemed a bit more of a challenge for her in this book.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Love in a cold climate!!!

Any additional comments?

Rosie Thomas has taken me from the heat of Kashmir via Egypt to the ice of the Antarctic. Her local knowledge shows real professionalism, but never outshines the skill of a master storyteller.
