A gritty tale of stained good versus unrepentant evil playing across the frozen arena of the Arctic in the age of the British Empire. An Irish surgeon, fresh from the horrors of the Indian Mutiny, seeks escape on a whaling ship and comes up against 'The Devil', as a fellow crew member describes the harpooner Henry Drax. There is blood, violence and gore aplenty, alongside tragedy, and perhaps redemption. A stonking good read, literary but not excessively so as can be the case with Booker nominees. Be warned - this is not a story for those of a gentle disposition. If you're not sure, the first chapter will make it clear!
