The North Water is not a delightful seafaring novel. It is a story of the brutal, filthy, violent, terrifying, and savage voyage. McGuire has fearlessly crafted the story with a realistic approach. His brilliant prose, choices of language, dialogue and cinematic depiction of wreaking ship, pulls the readers to the fog of the North Atlantic. Patrick Sumner, ex-army surgeon dishonorably discharged, signs on the ship as a volunteer medic with the hopes of rebuilding his career. Subsequently, Patrick encounters a pure evil, Henry Darx—a malevolent harpooner and his expedition turns into a timorous nightmare.
