Very readable, interaction between characters and descriptions of relationships were well done. As an adventure story set primarily on an ice floe in the Greenland strait I found the characters' circumstances were not described nearly so worrisome, wet or as frightening as the first person memoirs I have read by men who faced similar circumstances and lived to tell the tale. I also found the relationship between the two brothers to be somewhat too simplistic to be believable. Two brothers one not even a teenager yet stranded together and the older one never seriously loses his temper with the younger one? ( )

Brothers Alika and Sulu are hunting on an ice floe when it breaks apart from the land, forcing them to survive the long, cold winter on it alone. ( )
