"ALL THE INGREDIENTS A READER COULD HOPE FOR: parallel historical and contemporary dramas, a contest between personal aspirations and the powers of nature, the testing of human relationships under extreme conditions, and a magnificent setting." --The Boston Globe "THIS NOVEL, LIKE SCOTT'S JOURNEY, IS BOLD IN CONCEPT . . . . Morgan Lamont, the narrator of Elizabeth Arthur's novel, lies broken in the land of dreams. . . .Born on the fiftieth anniversary of Scott's death on his return trip from the South Pole in 1912, she begins her own sledding and man-hauling experiences at the age of five, when her Flexible Flyer slips away and she saves it in an act of youthful heroism. From then on, her life is drawn, almost magnetically, to the man and the last continent. . . .Arthur demonstrates great craftsmanship in planning and shaping her plot." --The New York Times Book Review "AS ELIZABETH ARTHUR CONVINCES US IN HER METICULOUSLY RESEARCHED, POWERFULLY DRAWN, AND DEEPLY FELT NOVEL, there are many beginnings and endings sealed within the polar ice . . . . Antarctic Navigation is more than an adventure story recast in contemporary feminist terms. It is also a bumpy coming-of-age tale: an exploration of the unmapped terrain of the heart; a flirtation with the complexities of ecopolitics, pacifism, and New Age mysticism; a dip into history, memoir, and science, and Arthur's passionate love letter to the natural world." --Miami Herald "ONE ALMOST FEELS THAT THE AUTHOR WROTE IT UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF SCOTT, that she so breathed in the necessary geographical, scientific, emotional, and spiritual aspects of that dreadful journey as to transcend fiction and spin reality. . . .So convincing that for several chapters I was deluded into thinking she was telling her own story and that she had actually been to the pole." --Beryl Bainbridge New York Newsday… (mere)

Some good description of the icy scenery and reactions to it, especially at the bodily level. But it doesn't really grip until things start to go wrong.Till that point, which is nearly the end of the book, it has a touch of "Five go to the Antarctic", i.e. everybody is too naïve and too nice. Ambitious, but falls short. Wrong word, it's far too long, an all too frequent fault, especially among US writers. The heroine doesn't even touch the Antarctic till page 300. And while the editor was cutting, they might have corrected some of the many minor errors, such as misspelling Huntley & Palmer biscuits and calling a Zen rishi Chinese. There's a lot of pseudo-philosophical physicsy stuff which gets in the way and I wonder how accurate that is, given that she seems not to know the difference between the 4th and 5th dimensions. Even the lyricists of "Hair" got that one right.
I did stay the course, nearly 800 pages, because I share the heroine's dream of going to the Antarctic in Scott's footsteps. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, except for the ending. It didn't seem like the ending this book needed. ( )

I feel like reading this book has been a long, long journey. It's not the kind of novel where the plot drags you along; the author takes every chance to branch off into musings about politics, religion, science, mythology, empire, etc. That said, I think that's the intention of the book - the plot is just a very light framework for all of these diversions.

It's beautifully written, and the sort of book that no doubt would well repay frequent rereading, dipping in a little at a time. ( )

This is one of those books that deserves to be re-read, many times. It is beautifully written with vivid detail throughout the story. I picked up the book because of its subject matter (Antarctica), but I fell in love with the lead character and her life-long ambition to lead an expedition to the South Pole. This is a book for the ages, all of them.
