The Terrorby Dan Simmons
This book is based factually on the missing Franklin expedition, last seen by Europeans in July of 1845. The HMS Erabus and the ill-named HMS Terror were the space shuttles of their day, and Dan Simmons spins a haunting and suspenseful tale of this exploration. Based on archaeological evidence found in the past 20 years, and on his own vivid gothic imagination, Simmons has recreated in a stunningly addictive read, what possibly happened to this crew.
Synopses & Reviews
The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice. But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape. A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.
Based on the true story of two ice ships that disappeared in the Arctic Circle during the Sir John Franklin Expedition in 1845, "The Terror" is a deeply absorbing story that combines awe-inspiring myth, grinding horror, and historically accurate adventure ("Seattle Times").
