Reviews

"Grann's prose moves at a brisk pace ... with a style that conveys the immensity of Antarctica and the difficulty of Worsley's journeys."
--Los Angeles Times

"A handsome volume ... Mr. Grann ably conjures the rasp of sled runner on ice and the skin burn of minus-40."
--Wall Street Journal

"Grann weaves tales of historic expeditions into his dimensional portrait of the driven Worsley.... [He] works his narrative magic on Worsley's adventures, their dizzying dangers, and the 'majestic deathscape' of the Antarctic."
--Booklist
, starred review

"In straightforward but evocative prose, Grann captures the drama and sheer audacity of his subject's forays into forbidding places--where one of the many ways to die is simply to get wet."
--Christian Science Monitor

"What makes The White Darkness so compelling is Grann's gift for memorable detail.... Grann is expert at making readers feel as if they are on the journey with the team."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"[A] rich, tight narrative."
--San Francisco Chronicle
