Editorial Reviews

Review

My Last Continent feels refreshingly different, vivid and immediate. Midge Raymond has an extraordinary gift for description that puts the reader bang in the middle of the action, bang in the middle of its dangerous and endangered world. Her clean, spare prose pulls us irresistibly into the story and the wider issues it raises. She is clearly a writer in command of her craft.”
-- M.L. Stedman, author of The Light Between Oceans

“[A] meditative romance…. Raymond has shown us a continent worth visiting.” ―
New York Times Book Review

 “There is a romance about faraway, desperate places, about isolation, about ice and snow. Add penguins and you have Midge Raymond’s elegant
My Last Continent, a love story about the Antarctic and the creatures, humans included, who are at home there. Half adventure, half elegy, and wholly recommended.” -- Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

 “
My Last Continent is an original and entirely authentic love story. It is a love triangle with Antarctica as the third party, literally and metaphorically. Midge Raymond takes us, physically and emotionally, into an unfamiliar world—a world that has much to teach us. She deftly  interweaves a compelling drama with a gentle and subtle love story. It's a mature novel, one that recognizes that love is seldom simple or exclusive, and that the things that bring us together can also keep us apart.” -- Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect

“You turn the pages quickly, caught up in the not-of-this-world drama of it all: Despite the heat of the central duo’s connection, this is a world of ice, where warm hearts struggle to thrive. … Raymond shines in capturing a shivery sense of place, in taking us somewhere most of us will never go. … Romantic? Absolutely. Ominous? That, too.” ―
The Seattle Times

"A sensitive explorarion of how ever the smallest action can ripple through an ecosystem--seemingly impenetrable, but as fragile as the human heart." ―
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“At once a high-stakes romance and a cautionary tale about the precariousness of this pristine polar world, Raymond’s masterful debut contemplates the ecological and emotional dangers that lurk within and without uncharted waters.” ―
Booklist

"A luminescent, double-layered love story: It's a love story about nature, in which a woman is drawn repeatedly to Antarctica and the vulnerable creatures who make their lives there. And it's a love story about two people who have found in the remote ice the perfect numbing refuge from their pain." ―
The Oregonian

“An atmospheric tale of love discovered, and losses endured, in Antarctica. …The unpredictability of the splendors and terrors of life at the southern pole creates a backdrop of foreboding entirely appropriate for the story's cinematic resolution [and] the authentic rendering of the setting distinguishes Raymond's novel from other stories of love in perilous times and places.” ―
Kirkus Reviews

My Last Continent is a complicated love story and an education in the plight of penguins in Antarctica, showcasing the beauty and terror unique to one of the world’s most remote terrains…Raymond skillfully captures the stunning and singular landscape and its special inhabitants.” ― Publishers Weekly

"Atmospheric and adventurous...The story and vivid writing will keep readers glued to the pages." ―
Library Journal

“Gorgeously written, suspenseful literary fiction.” ―
Swapna Krishna, Book Riot
