About this deal

One can only read "he said savagely," "he said gently," "he said admiringly," and so on in every paragraph before it gets annoying. Moments before it is taken, Ferraday activates his own detonator, destroying the film and denying either side the locations of the other's missile silos. Ice Station Zebra holds a 47% "rotten" rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, based on 15 reviews with an average rating of 5. I like the military style-font here, the hunched figures in the centre dwarfed by the submarine, which is itself lost in the ice and facing an oncoming blizzard.

The Gaelic Books Council (Comhairle nan Leabhraichean) is the lead organisation with responsibility for supporting Scottish Gaelic authors and publishers, and for raising the profile and reach of Scottish Gaelic books in Scotland and internationally. I enjoyed how the narrator/POV character didn’t reveal his own secrets with the reader either, not until later, only giving hints, and how many of his actions are esoteric and mysterious, making you wonder if you’re following a reliable narrator at all. Dr Carpenter professes to being a doctor with specific training related to submarine and arctic conditions, and manages to convince the Captain, Swanson, and the crew to accept him on board, after confiding in the Captain that the Drift Ice station was in fact a top secret location for monitoring Soviet missiles, whose activities need to be protected.In that case, however, the drip cock was accidentally blocked on the newly built craft by fresh paint, which led to the rear cap being opened while the bow cap was already open to the sea.

Dolphin prepares to blow a hole in the ice with a torpedo, but someone has sabotaged the torpedo tube doors and seawater pours in. A modern reader might guess at a few revelations here or there, but the ride to the climax is a smooth one.

J K Rowling tries to draw both themes close in her last book, but the impression of the reading experience, or the scenario presentation is nowhere near as intense as Alistair MacLean's, or Anne Frank's , and ultimately,one has to fall back on Rowling's own imagination.
