The White Darkness Tough-o-Meter

By Geraldine McCaughrean

Tough-o-Meter

(7) Snow Line

The White Darkness has a fairly straightforward plot that's not difficult to follow. Thank goodness for that, because the novel's ideas and trappings are extremely complex. By "trappings" we're talking about the language, which is dense and sometimes difficult to understand. There are some serious five-dollar words, and some of the characters talk funny, which means the dialogue may take some extra time to read. Don't worry—the book includes plenty of excitement and adventure, which keeps things moving.
