desperate to change his life so when he's offered the chance to join an Arctic expedition he jumps at it Spirits are high as the ship leaves Norway five men and eight huskies crossing. 1947 The story opens with a response to letter I don t think we ll ever learn the truth of what happened at Gruhuken However I know enough to be convinced that something terrible took place No doubt the journal would as you suggest explain much of what happened but it has not survived and I cannot ask Jack himself 1937 The one year research expedition to the Arctic is told strictly through the words of Jack Miller s journal Jack joins the expedition of 3 other men looking for a communications expert It is a decision to escape poverty and why not since he s very alone in this world Jack doesn t yet know how truly alone feels but he just mightThere are at least two meanings for the term Dark Matter in this book First as stated in Jack s journal In one of my periodicals there s a paper by someone who s worked out that what we know of the universe is only a tiny percentage of what actually exists He says what s left can t be seen or detected but it s there he calls it dark matter Of course no one believes him but I find the idea unsettling Or rather not the idea itself that s merely an odd notion about outer space What I don t like is the feeling I sometime get that other things might exist around us of which we know nothing Secondly it concerns the lack of daylight the men of this voyage are about to experience During the winter period within the Arctic Circle see Norway s far northern island Svalbard in this case the four months from late October to mid February will experience Polar Night This means the sun never rises By the way saying winter months sounds so wrong when speaking about the Arctic I d call it winter all the damned time But as I learned there is winter and there is Winter Same is true for the dark and its effects on the human mind In a month on the 16th of October we ll see the sun for the last time According to the books there ll still be some light for a few weeks after that because at noon the sun won t be all that far below the horizon They call it midday dawn After that nothing When Jack Gus and Algie finally arrive by ship to their destination they know that the captain believes the place is haunted Something bad has occurred here It s only a feeling All that speaks of past human inhabitance here is an abandoned mine and an old trapper s hut that leans against the rocks above the bay but Jack sees something else on the first day The one who walks I won t go into the plot any further here except to say that he will end up alone There could be no other way right But the thing to remember Jack is that it s only an echo It s like a footprint or a shadow It can t hurt you All it can do is frighten After that nothing Well maybe Jack s not uite alone Back to School response to letter I don t think we ll ever learn the truth of what

This is subtitled A Ghost Story so I knew what to expect or at least I thought so While it will be lapped up by lovers of traditional ghost stories myself included this novel also has a uniue edge and great literary uality Dark Matter relates the experiences of Jack a former student of physics who at 28 is poor lonely sick of London life and hates his job as an export clerk On a whim he applies to join an Arctic expedition as a wireless operator and is thrilled to be accepted even though he feels a little alienated from his rich Oxford educated teammates Confiding in his journal he writes of the group s journey to Norway their arrival in Spitsbergen and first encounters with Gruhuken the desolate bay they intend to make camp in As the Arctic winter permanent night draws in and a series of mysterious accidents befall the others Jack s misgivings about Gruhuken grow and growThe ghostly element of the book is executed beautifully with a suspenseful build up a sense of great foreboding and brilliant subtlety However there s much to the story than that The real power of the novel is in its depiction of the frozen wastelands of the Arctic the empty untouched lonely landscapes Jack at first relishes but comes to regard with horror Paver s descriptions are so evocative I felt like I was actually there and could imagine exactly what Gruhuken looked like with absolute clarity There is so much packed into this little book and it s all done with such flair the development of Jack s feelings towards his teammates and in particular Gus his initial antipathy towards the dogs evolving slowly into affection for Isaak his immense relief when he receives a visitor The most striking part is the portrayal of Jack s increasing fear paranoia and confusion as he faces the horrors of Gruhuken and its never ending darkness alone His experiences made me uestion my own love ofdesire for solitude and that is a rare thing indeed for me Michelle Paver has written a number of children s books and some historical romances that don t really interest me I m really hoping that Dark Matter will lead to in the ghost story mould from this author as it s exactly the type of book that makes me want to read I know I ve read something good when upon finishing it I immediately want to re read it to immerse myself in its world once again this was one of the rare few to provoke such a reaction Every time I think about it I immediately want to grab it and start reading again I also want to travel to the Arctic and at the same time find myself feeling terrified of it If you enjoy supernatural tales suspense or tremendous atmosphere this book is highly recommended
