Around the World = Spitzbergen. Set in the late 1930s, with thoughts of impending war not far from the collective consciousness, a scientific expedition heads to Spitzbergen in the high Arctic. The expedition is recounted in the form of the journal of radio operator Jack Miller. Jack, already socially isolated by his circumstances in London, feels the odd-man out alongside his wealthy, upper-class, Oxbridge-educated fellow team members, out of place and possibly out of his depth. Against the advice of the Norwegian captain, the expedition establishes a base at Gruhuken, an abandoned mining camp on a sheltered bay, during the 24-hour daylight of the polar summer. The researchers set about gathering meteorological and scientific data, and look with wonder at their surroundings. Paver's deep love of the Arctic is evident in the descriptions of the wild, vast and awe-inspiring landscape and weather conditions. But the Arctic summer is brief. The return of twilight, then ever-lengthening night, builds a growing sense of unease in the team. However, the perceived class divide between Gus and Algie, and Jack, and a reluctance to give words, and thus form, to the creeping horror prevents them from sharing their fears. Events then conspire to leave Jack alone in camp with only the dogs he once disliked, and his dread develops into full-blown terror with the waning of the moon in the depth of the polar night. Jack is a wholly-believable narrator, and battles to reconcile his scientific rationality against the mounting terror of being alone in dark, connecting with his primal fears and sliding into madness. His perception of reality fractures like the ice in bay, but is the real danger from an external malevolence or from an accident caused by his psychological decline? Paver has created a bone-chilling tale, both in setting and in content, and the creeping sense of horror that spreads through the Arctic cold and dark results in a deeply-satisfying read, perfect for a snowy winter evening.
