Author: Ken Follett
Remember that I said, this was not going to be an YA lit exclusive blog? Well, this is my first adult book review.
Whiteout is a fantastic book and I couldn't stop reading it (I know I've been saying this too much, but lately I've been reading really good books).
Set in the cold and snowy Scotland, this book gain lots of points just because of the setting.
One thing that I really enjoyed, about Whiteout,was that the book is really fast paced, so though you will still be turning pages to find out what is going to happen (because the chapters end very conveniently in the climax) you won't sufferthrough long and boring descriptions and lots of scientific facts (wich sometimes happens in books of the thriller genre) to discover what happens next.
The cast of characters is really interesting. They're all different from each other but at the same time they are all captivating and the reader cares about them. I believe that the villains are kind of a cliché but that didn't bother me.
The plot is incredible, and there are going to happen things that you never imagined. It's easy to understand all the subplots and not get lost in the sequence of events.
Witheout is an incredible thriller and if I were you I would read it.
