Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Terror by Dan Simmons, read by Tom Sellwood.

Stephen King hailed Dan Simmons' best-selling novel as 'a brilliant, massive combination of history and supernatural horror', and it's now a chilling 10 part AMC Original TV series from Ridley Scott.
The most advanced scientific enterprise ever mounted, Sir John Franklin’s 1845 expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage had every expectation of triumph. 
But for almost two years his ships, HMS Terror and Erebus, have been trapped in the Arctic ice. Supplies of fuel and food are running low. Scurvy, starvation and even madness are beginning to take their toll. And yet the real threat isn’t from the constantly shifting, alien landscape, the flesh-numbing temperatures or being crushed by the unyielding, frozen ocean. No, the real threat is far more terrifying. 
There is something out there in the frigid darkness. It stalks the ships and snatches men. It is a nameless thing. At once nowhere and everywhere, this terror has become the expedition’s nemesis....

Fantastic read

I loved this book, the story, the characters and the narration. I’ve never been more interested in finding out about the Northwest passage, about the Arctic, the Inuit, the lands, the discoveries and the people. I knew these characters. I cared about these characters. I felt the bitter cold, the darkness, the great weight, the horror. I’m so sorry this book ended, I could listen to it all over again.

A feel good romp in the snow.

Loved this book. Made my horrible summer seem brighter in comparison. Would recomend to anyone who enjoys crushing isolation and things that go bump in the night.
