Ice Road by Gillian Slovo

I didn’t like the Ice Road by Gillian Slovo.

I got to page 175 out of 541, and just thought to myself ‘I could be reading something more interesting.’Ice Road by Gillian Slovo

It has been shortlisted for awards (Orange Prize), and I can see why – it’s a very well-written book. But I found it too much hard going, and not in the least bit gripping (which is saying something when you’re got a boat load of people stuck in the middle of Siberia).
