Fast in the Ice [PDF]

by R.M. Ballantyne
This isn’t my first taste of the Scottish writer, B.M. Ballantyne, but in my opinion it is the best. With many of his other literary works I found his approach pompous, patronizing, arrogant and condescending. This is, no doubt, because his target audience was the young, naïve and highly impressionable (of which I am none). This story is of an ill conceived and poorly supplied polar expedition that had failure written all over it from its conception. The narrative is fast-paced, interesting and informative. I had no idea that ice took on so many forms or that a walrus could be so violent and terrifying. If I were to mention one criticism, it would be that at no time did any of the shipwrecked and stranded crew appear to face any real mortal danger (which seems a little unlikely in such a hostile environment. Putting this one criticism aside, I can honestly state that I fell into a brown study and was completely unaware and oblivious to the world around me. I take this as the mark of a good book. I recommend this book to everyone looking for information, action and adventure.
