    I read it because I am fascinated by remote places and I wanted to learn more about Bouvet Island and the area around it. In that sense, the book was fairly interesting. But the plot was quite cheap and the characters didn't have enough depth. Especially the villains were very one-sided. Also the love story was quite out of the blue and felt pointless. All in all, it was ok, but not a memorable book.

    It’s a pretty cool adventure novel in a unique place. I knew next to nothing about the book’s locale, and enjoyed reading about places and species I had only heard of few times before.
    The love story part of this book is probably its worst aspect, and it’s repetitive in some of its sentences, but it’s a quick and easy read of adventure, exploration and drama!

    A Grue of Ice is an adventure thriller set in the wild waters of the Antarctic and Southern Atlantic. The protagonist is an ex-British naval captain and his sidekick is a native of Tristan Da Cunha who served under him during WWII. The novel includes a villainous whaling magnate, several remote island, many ocean gales and a number of enjoyable action scenes. In typical 1960s fashion, the plot revolves around a substance vital to the construction of rockets. This is an enjoyable thriller, well worth a read if you enjoy simple, well written adventure yarns.

    c1962: Published under the title of The Disappearing Island in the USA. I can only think that perhaps the word 'grue' may have been deemed to have been off putting for the Americans. I understand that grue is actually more used in Scotland and has its roots in the various languages used by the Vikings. Meaning to tremble or shudder. ' I assumed my captain's voice. " Leading Torpedoman Sailhardy.. ." I couldn't help myself. I grinned at him again. His eyes were as far away as the horizon. " Relax," I said: " You look as if you were trying to see all the way to the South Pole."

    Naval, Antarctic adventure story. Formulaic in style - bad guys searching for something, good guys get implicated in bad guys shenanigans.

    BUT... it was riproaringly entertaining and what it lacked in creative depth and literary pretentiousness it certainly made up for in tidal excitement. Surprisingly enjoyable and I found I struggled to put it down.

    A rollicking good tale of the sea with plenty of lavish description and constant action.
