Staff-recommended reading from the
Stayed up way too late several nights reading Cold Earth! It's chilling, suspenseful, and all too plausible. Six young archaeologists on a summer dig in the west coast of Greenland face the possibility of apocalypse at home and being stranded close to the Arctic Circle as winter inexorably approaches. Moss tells the tale through each of the six voices; some better defined than others. At only 278 pages, I think Moss could have given some characters a larger voice and expanded the ending; I longed for more.
