Melt is a thrilling adventure set in the Arctic.
A little slow to get going, but, once you are in, you a taking on a daunting but beautiful journey with Yutu and Bea. With mysteries to solve and elements to overcome, the book piques your interest, and the ‘will they, won’t they’, moments keep you on the edge of your seat.
The main plot is layered over the background of climate change, animals losing their habitats, people losing their homes and heritage, as well as an insight into the oil industry and the negative effects on the environment from that. It introduces the subjects and constructs a thinking point quietly, but effectively, in the surroundings and circumstances of the main plot.
A wonderful read that is both exciting and thought provoking! Thoroughly enjoyed.
