Teen/adult fiction. Historical (Alaska gold rush); suspense. Sig is left alone with the frozen corpse of his father in a isolated cabin in the arctic when he hears a menacing knock on the door--a large, threatening man from his father's past that is demanding his share of the gold, gold that Sig doubts even exists. Sig's only hope is to get to his father's revolver, hidden in the store room, but the stranger is wary and Sig may never have that chance. ( )

"Ett iskallt Kiruna 1910, blandas med ett ännu kallare Nome 1899. Hos Sigge i Kiruna ligger hans pappa död på köksbordet. Ihjälfrusen. Storasyster har åkt efter hjälp men den dröjer. Så knackar det på dörren och in kliver en hotfull man som är ute efter hämnd. Hämnd för något som hände i Nome 11 år tidigare. En iskall rysare om svek och där revolvern i titeln återkommer när man minst anar."

[I wrote this review in 2010]

** A good story, but it comes close to glamourising the revolver in parts**

All credit to the author for yet another unique and original story. What sets Sedgwick's young adult novels apart from many other authors is his ability to push boundaries and try out new ideas. He is not afraid to test the limits and allow his young readers the opportunity to make up their own minds about many of the topics he introduces. I do wonder in 'Revolver' if he strikes quite the right balance at times. It is a sensitive subject and in parts of the novel the revolver appears to be celebrated. A reader who does not read to the end of the story might go away with a quite different impression to a reader who finds out what happens at the end and for this reason it's a novel I would only recommend for more mature readers (11+).

A good, engaging, short read and clearly well researched. The story is set in 1910 (looking back to 1899 in parts) in an extremely harsh, isolated and unimaginably cold environment - a small mining settlement north of the Arctic Circle. Sig Andersson is all alone in the family cabin, with the frozen body of his dead father just rescued from the ice, when he hears a knock at the door... people just don't knock on the door of the Andersson cabin. The cabin hasn't seen visitors for years. Sig's nightmare begins... ( )

Given Sedgwick's skill with atmosphere in fiction, coming across a book by him that centres on a revolver and an isolated homestead in the Arctic circle was a moment of joy.

Unfortunately, this book is something of a failure; it should really be tense and atmospheric; pregnant with potential violence and full of mystery but somehow it fails to deliver any of that, or much atmosphere, until very near the end, which is at least quite good.

I am left wondering what Jack London would have made of the same inspirational premise, surely it would have been better than this and also more grim. ( )

Sedgwick's books are always pretty hit or miss for me. This one was definitely more of a hit. ( )

I remember hearing once at a publishers' sales conference that books with "Ice" or "Snow" in the title always do well. If so, Marcus Sedgwick has missed a trick with Revolver, longlisted for the Guardian children's fiction prize, which must be the snowiest, iciest young adult novel you are ever likely to read.
A boy sits in a cold, bare shack somewhere north of the Arctic Circle, alone but for his father's body lying on a table, frozen both by rigor mortis and the manner of his death. The boy's older sister and stepmother have gone for help. And then there is a knock on the door: outside is a giant of a man asking for the boy's father.
This is as stark a beginning as you can imagine.....

To a professional man, everything is beautiful which shews skill and efficiency in his own particular profession: and thus a murderous weapon is beautiful to a soldier, in proportion to the execution it will commit.
