This is a beautifully told story with a gripping plot that unfolds like the best of thrillers. But it's much more than that and also deals with the themes of love,loss and isolation in a moving but not over sentimental way. The author succeeds in the simplest of language to describe the most complex of human emotions and to set the scene so well that my own toes felt almost frozen by her description of the cold.
The narrator has a clear voice and does a good job of distinguishing between most of the characters.
I didn't want to put the iPod down and finished this in one day. I'd strongly recommend to anyone who likes a little suspense, a little love and some very good writing.

Of the ten or so Audiobooks I have downloaded this year, this is tied in second place (with Ukranian Tractors!) I loved it so much, I actually went out and bought a hard copy so I could read all about the Norwegians, which brings me to my only complaint about this title: it was abridged. As such, a large part of the back-story was missing. On the up-side though, the narration was hauntingly beautiful, the plot perfect, the location atmospheric, and the characters real and likeable. The very human issues faced by them in this book are ageless and thought-provoking. Fabulous.
