    Rosie Thomas's novel White is powerful It's a gripping and beautifully descriptive read The author brings you to Everest with the climbers During her careful character development you begin to recognize these climbers While feeling their pain almost to the point of touching the penetrating cold you begin to understand that they will continue Despite a very real risk to life and limb in the face of stark fear their ongoing obsession with reaching the summit will continue

    I have been reading and enjoying the novels of Rosie Thomas for many years now although it is a few years since I last read one I must rectify this as I have at least four of her most recent novels waiting to be read It is the usual excuse so many books so little time but listening to White has revived my interest I had read this previously but decided to listen to the tapes before making them available on Bookmooch Rosie Thomas is not only an author but a keen traveller and mountaineer which comes over in her writing especially so in ‘White’ as it is about an expedition to climb EverestHer obvious knowledge of climbing adds to the reality of the story which set against the mountain backdrop makes this novel much than a complicated love story between the three protagonists Sam McGrath whose chance encounter on a plane means he ends up in Nepal Al Hood an experienced climber who has promised his daughter that this climb will be his last and Sam Finch who has signed up as an expedition doctor Demons and dreams are played out against the dramatic backdrop of EverestI actually read this back in October 2007 before I started this blog but I was already posting reviews on my review was entitled Passion and DramaThis is what I had to say then “This title was actually published in 2000 and it has been sitting on my bookshelf for awhile as I was not sure I wanted to read it However I have now got around to it and enjoyed much than expected I actually know very little about mountaineering so found the detail fascinating I do find it difficult to understand why people want to push their body to its limits and beyond though The experiences of the climbers struggling to climb Everest in this story are horrendous I was particularly interested to read about Namche and the trek to Everest Base Camp as I have a niece who as part of her travels is due to go there If you like a good romance with some drama thrown in you cannot fail to enjoy this”

    After a rather slow start this book becomes uite gripping In places it is almost too graphic The descriptions become vivid traumatic and very real as the party make their attempt on Everest Al professional mountaineer leads the group Finchthe doctor is the only woman in the expedition but she has already tackled other mountains Sam after an earlier encounter with Finch follows her out to the Himalayas in the hope that she might develop feelings for him Everest however dwarfs them all as they battle with lack of oxygen frostbite and their own inner fears while they negotiate its glaciers rock faces and crevasses Having already read The Kashmir Shawl it is uite apparent that Rosie Thomas has a strong feeling for this part of the world and understands the hazards


  5. Julia Julia says:

    As usual a good readI will never understand why someone would want to climb Everest but this book does attempt to explain it from various viewpoints At times a rather uncomfortable read the latter stages of the climb in particular but definitely a page turner once the story has really got going Ending not too twee either

    Yeah this so not 'my cup of tea' the pace was too slow and even though i wasn't bored per say wasn't excited maybe mildly interested about what was going on and how things would unfoldFor sure didnt identify with the female protagonist someone who thinks or right out come out and admits that there can be too much ease I have had it easy in the world but climbing mountains scrapes away all the layers of expectation and assumption Its a challenge separate from the rest of my life Leaves me staggering to comprehend this kind of outlook on life where u r not only born with a silver spoon in ur mouth u spit on it and go looking for dangerous ways to take aways the taste Sorry not sorry dont get it Not to mention her relationship with her family or her attitude towards her mother Spoilt Rotten is something that comes to mind not a trait i'm looking for in my female leadHad another problem with the so called love story between Finch and Al like really who was buying that?? and guessing form all the rave reviews here there were many that did Again mind boggling Al just lost his childhood friend and because of his lifestyle and Spider's death he knows that he has also lost his wife so he's lost figuratively and literally and he finds compassion from a female stranger and male that he is he needs to celebrate living with sex what a shocker And PLZ tell me again that Finch wasn't just convenient?? no Plz sell me the fairytale Even after she made the first move by joining the expedition cause she found love yeah right The only thing she found was someone that used her and then moved on and guessing from how she was coddled and loved this was the first guy to not give a shit and the experience was so new and unknown perplexing even that she need to experience it again cause she found another mountain she couldwould conuer But let's face it who wants to admit that they were used and then discharged?? Well could go on but anyone reading my review gets that this wasn't for me The only reason i gave this 2 stars was for Sam and his story he was a cute interesting character and he was relatable made this read bearableBut his fascination with Finch yeah not buying it cause looks can only take u so far and she isn't worth all the trouble So 2 stars

    This is the second cold book I've read by Rosie Thomas the first was set in Alaska and I loved most of it just not so much the end though I'm a sucker for happy endingsThis one did what I expected it to do it made me cold again and uncomfortable and just a little bit scared for the characters The story was also bittersweet with a love triangle that ended or less the way I imagined it would end minus a foot and some toes I didn't much care for the male love interest Al the ultimate mountain man because it was a little difficult for me to understand him and his love for climbing or should I say addiction? I admit I know nothing about what drives people who risk limb and life to climb mountains like these Rosie Thomas does a great job describing their obsession I also loved the descriptions of the place and the climb itself though as someone who knows nothing about climbing I was sometimes a little lost as to what exactly they were doing climbing the face of the mountain vertically? Plowing through a semi vertical slope? Crossing a chasm? It was exciting scary even at times and puzzling to understand how far sheer will power and a bit of madness can take you The love story went or less as I expected DON'T READ ANY MORE if you ant to avoid spoilers It was clear from the start Al would never abandon climbing so there was no place for Finch despite his love for her or his intentions and promise to his daughter So it made some sense and it was sort of predictable that he died in the mountain and it did allow for the extra 50 pages in the end which were actually nice I liked Adam uite a lot so I was glad he got what he wanted in the end though I'm not uite sure why and whether Finch actually falls for him Well enough of the love storySo all in all it was a good read I particularly like the descriptions of the hardships of the expedition even if I'm not a nature or sports fan and I liked that there were no miracle victories or solutions for Finch or the others


  8. Christine Christine says:

    I relish starting a new Rosie Thomas novel There is nothing predicable about her books but you know that whatever the subject it will be well researched and beautifully written'White' certainly wasn't a disappointment I was with the team for every one of their steps on Everest thanks to Thomas's brilliant descriptions The love story in this book wasn't straight forward nor was it too sentimental 'White' is essentially about the motivation that each character has for tackling the climb up Everest; the fears that they overcome and the physical and emotional battles that they fight to get to the summit The book doesn't end with the final ascent but goes on to follow the 'after stories' of some of the team This made it a very complete novel that left me wanting to read about the many men and women who have climbed the world's highest mountain


  9. Gemma Taylor Gemma Taylor says:

    This arrived in a surprise box of books so not normally one I’d have chosen to read but I was interested by the climbing themeAlmost abandoned at the start as it was uite slow to pick up and I’m not one for a “romance” story but soon got into the story and found it uite unputdownable Brilliantly written really gave you a feel you were in the mountains and I loved how the story bought everyone together in different waysGlad I accidentally stumbled upon this book


  10. Heather Heather says:

    I love this author she gets real emotion into her stories the Kashmir Shawl was also a goodie This book combined Ned two of my lives a great family drama and Mount Everest So well written I found myself re reading paragraphs because of the images they created in my head A romantic novel that does not overdo the mush what an excellent way to spend Christmas morning
