The Iceberg Express   By: (1872-1966)

Book cover

The Iceberg Express by David Cory takes readers on an exhilarating journey through a frozen world where danger lurks at every turn. From the very first page, the author's descriptive writing style immerses readers in the icy landscape, making them feel as if they are right there alongside the characters.

The story revolves around the protagonist, Jack, a courageous young boy who embarks on a daring quest to find his long-lost parents. As he boards the Iceberg Express, an extraordinary train that traverses the treacherous frozen wilderness, Jack quickly finds himself facing numerous obstacles and nefarious characters that stand in his way.

One of the strengths of this book lies in its well-developed characters. Jack is a relatable and likable protagonist, determined to survive the unforgiving cold and rescue his parents. His bravery and resourcefulness make him easy to root for, and readers will find themselves emotionally invested in his journey.

Cory's vivid descriptions of the icy landscapes and terrifying predicaments that Jack finds himself in are exceptionally well-executed. The author's attention to detail allows readers to imagine the biting cold, the cracking ice, and the looming threat of wild creatures lurking beneath the frozen surface. Additionally, the suspenseful pacing keeps the readers on the edge of their seats, eager to know what happens next.

The Iceberg Express also conveys some valuable lessons through its themes. Friendship, perseverance, and the power of believing in oneself are recurring motifs throughout the story. Jack's interactions with the diverse and memorable characters he meets on his journey serve as a reminder of the importance of trust and teamwork when facing adversity.

However, one aspect that may make some readers hesitant is the occasional lack of an emotional connection to the characters. While the descriptions and action propel the plot forward, there are instances where the story could have delved deeper into the characters' emotions, allowing readers to feel a stronger bond with them.

Overall, The Iceberg Express is an exciting and imaginative adventure that will captivate readers of all ages. David Cory's skillful storytelling and ability to transport readers to a frozen world filled with danger and wonder make this book a worthy addition to any bookshelf. As Jack battles the frigid elements and encounters unexpected allies and foes, readers will find themselves eagerly turning the pages, swept up in the thrilling escapades of The Iceberg Express.

There was a pale mist on the far off sea, and up around the sun were white clouds edged with the hues of pinks and violets. The tide was coming in, and the waves, little at first, but growing larger every moment, were crowding up, along the sand and pebbles, laughing, winking and whispering, as they tumbled over each other, like thousands of children hurrying home from school.

Who was down there under the blue water, with the hoarse, hollow voice, urging and pushing them across the beach to her feet? And what was there beneath the sea, and beyond the sea, so deep, so broad and so dim, away off where the white ships, that looked smaller than seabirds, were gliding out and in?

But while Mary Louise stood still and wondered, there came a low rippling laugh to her ear... Continue reading book >>
