Finished reading The Terror

Just finished reading a very interesting book called “The Terror” (Amazon) by Dan Simmons. It topiced the failed Franklin Expedition on search for the North-West-Passage in the Arctic Ocean north of Canada.

Standing out as a historical fiction book, The Terror displays a large amount of historical correctness and stars Francis Cozier as the book’s hero, alongside John Franklin.

Despite the historical events, Dan Simmons edited a supernatural force into the story, relying heavily on Inuit mythology. Whoever is interested in that should definitely swap across the later chapters.

A good summer or winter nights read.
