By Phillipa (PD) Martin This is the first work I've read by LA Larkin and I was impressed from the first page to the last.There were lots of things to like about Thirst, but most importantly it was a page-turner, a book that kept me wanting to come back for more.I also really enjoyed the setting of Antarctica. Although I've never been there, I felt that Larkin captured the environment incredibly well--particularly the feeling of penetrating cold and the sense of complete isolation.Finally, I liked the way Larkin intertwined a tight story with a stronger, more relevant message of global warming. It wasn't `hit-you-over-the-head' or preachy, but the underlying environmental messages created yet another great layer in this book.Engaging characters, a tight plot and a powerful (but not overdone) environmental theme...what more could you want?! 19 of 20 people found the following review helpful. Fast paced, gripping By Mike It's a roller coaster of a story, it grabs you from the outset, and Antarctica is a fascinating, exotic location that Larkin brings to life convincingly. This story also makes you think about our thirst for power, wealth and resources without being preachy. While I really enjoyed Larkin's first book, I agree with what one of the other reviewers said - this one's better. 9 of 9 people found the following review helpful. Left Me Wanting More By Ronald T. Roseborough Luke Searle is a hot headed glaciologist who is studying the glaciers of Antarctica as a member of an Australian research team. Personal family problems, plus a need to do things his way,have not endeared him to the team leader Maddie Wildman. Communication with some members of the research team is mysteriously lost. Luke naturally wants to go cowboy and investigate on his own instead of listening to Maddie's orders. The attempt to recover the missing team members is just the start of the troubles. The team soon finds themselves under attack by unknown assailants. Who are these attackers and why have they brought guns and violence to the pristine land of Antarctica? Fast paced action combined with gripping suspense heat up this tale of intrigue in this frozen frontier. I felt the ending was a little soft after all the great action and twists earlier in the book.
