The Terror

I’ve finally finished Dan Simmons’ “The Terror” and I’m very impressed. This is awesome blend of historic novel with supernatural fiction. The old era of seafaring is very precisely described with all its difficulties and perils. I literally felt brutal atmosphere of Arctic on my spine when reading the book. To all problems that Franklin’s expedition met in these harsh ices, author added something mysterious and very dangerous multiplying their progress in the frozen sea by many times. The ending of the novel wasn’t predictable till the end, but it’s one of the best endings I ever read. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes adventures and nature.
