Review: Cold Earth

Cold EarthCold Earth by Sarah Moss
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was different – its almost hard to describe. A group of 6 strangers (Nina, Ruth, Jim, Catriona, Yanni and Ben) conducting an archeological dig in Greenland when they get world of a possible epidemic that is making people ill at home. The book is told in 6 sections from the perspective of the six people, as the story progresses through their time on the dig. It was interesting as I learnt quite a bit about archeology (I don’t ever want to go on a dig now) and the characters were interesting. <spoiler>The ending left a bit to be desired in that you never really found out what the epidemic was, and that all but one of the made it home (although it wasn’t who I thought it was going to be).</spoiler> I’ll be interested to see what this author writes in the future.
