Summary North Star

Michael Randall is a man in a hurry Desperate to succeed he seeks his fortune in the oil sands far beneath the North Sea At the story's center is the Northstar. Some critics dismiss Hammond Innes novels as being mere adventure tales stories with no character development This assessment is not only unfair it s absolutely wrong North Star provides ample evidence of that In fact you can see examples of strong character development in most of his other novels as well excepting perhaps those written during the first years of World War II What happens with his protagonist here Mike Randall however is a gradual maturing From political nitwittery and childish indecision to moral commitment and decisiveness That is the story of North Star The background noise of political espionage and terrorism is just that background noise In this instance Innes even foregoes his sometimes unfortunate tendency to inflict a tidy romantic ending on things although such is alluded to as being just around the corner in the final page or twoAlso at work here Randall is the clear hero of this story There is no off centering of story advancement to someone other than the main narrator of things Too by 1972 74 Innes is becoming and concerned with nature conservancy and what might be termed by some today as environmentalism In the future that preoccupation would cloud some stories and make the books weaker But here it is a tangible and workable part of the storyline not intrusive and in fact necessary for bringing Randall out of the bookish world of playing with ideas to experiencing the solid conseuences of his actions instead of his words and dreams That Innes did this while endorsing the large scale buildup of Britain s North Sea oil industry is all the impressive Ugly Fish oil sands far beneath the North Sea At the story's center is the Northstar.
