    " This was a pretty cool novel. Very psychological and definitely a good depiction of mental and emotional manipulation, taken from the victim's perspective. The only thing about the book that seemed odd to me was the girl's fascination with Antarctica. I've just never known Antarctica to be a place of intrigue. Maybe I need to get out more? It just seemed odd that she would spend so much time researching the place, and dreaming of going there. It's cold there, man. Anyhow, on a less personal note, this book was well worth reading. A really good psychological thriller. "

    " The White Darkness is about fourteen-year-old Sym's journey to Antarctica and the crazy things that happen while she is there. I'm between giving this book a 4 and a 5 star rating. It is an intense work that kept me reading (not slow paced despite how long it is). I actually stayed up till three am finishing the book because I had to know what happened. I think the book also dealt with some very interesting characters. Yet, at the same time, Uncle Victor becomes very unrealistic to me, and though I was disgusted with him for his actions, there were times when I had to wonder why Sym would trust him. I thought she should have realized his true intentions much earlier. Overall, though, the book was highly entertaining and I would recommend it to young adult and adult readers. "

    " This was really difficult for me to get into. I think it might be because I read it in small spurts, and when I could read for a longer stretch, I fell into the story more. Today I read the second half, and it was an exciting plot, but I was frustrated with Sym and the blinders she had on regarding Victor. Also, I had lost any previous momentum. So, I give the first half 3 stars and the second half 4 stars. I do recommend it -- just read it faster than I did. "

    " I gave it 75 pages and I was still really having to concentrate to keep my interest in the story. Logan told me the rest of the story and it sounds like I am glad I didn't waste the time to finish the book. The writing was very dry and slow going and the story was just weird! "
