I wish I had watched it first. I know, different mediums have their restrictions, but the book is so deep and multidimensional.

Can't wait to read other books by the author. It was well written including detail not too much.

The end was odd so just be open to that. Slower read.

Long story with a lot of details and events that create suspense. Like Lovestoread5 Nov 03, A little long, but worth the read. I admit, I did have to skip through a bit, but got the gist of it.

Exceptional background explanations and details. Very good to the end. Like 1 Colt Sep 03, So in depth, you feel like you're one of the men, living and dying along with them.

Dan Simmons on Novel Suspects

It is well written, and is exactly what I have been searching for for years: a real historical event, but fictionalized with an event that although isn't real, does fit with what might have happened. Only problem, it does tend to drag in a few parts, mostly with a pair of characters who are completely useless and should have been removed due to their zero effect on the overall plot. Also, the ending felt a bit ad hoc, a little different from the t.


Like c Chopper Jun 12, I started watching the television series based on this book and wanted more. I checked this book out and read it in a few days.

What is Kobo Super Points?

It's a fun fictionlized tale of the supernatural surrounding a real historical event. I found the writing to be gripping, and it flowed well.

It did drag a bit in some spots, but overall was a good page turner. It also helped me to understand some of the elements of the TV program that weren't fleshed out very well.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and the associated TV series quite a bit. It is based on the true story of the most harrowing catastrophe in the history of world exploration.

It was thought that two wooden ships equipped with primitive steam engines could travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean between a labyrinth of islands and peninsulas that were frozen into the sea ice of the Arctic Ocean most of the year.

The fact that Dan Simmons added an horror element to a historic novel is pretty awesome.

And there are so many characters that I liked in the book and well. Some parts of the book had me confused because it would go back and forth at different times but I pretty much know what's going on.

And it's doomed!!!!

Not being stuck in the ice in the middle of no where land with minus a million degrees with food running out, disease running all around, oh and lets not forget the monster! I liked Dr. Harry D. Goodsir had insisted on coming along on this exploration party was to prove that he was as strong and able a man as most of his crewmates.

He soon realized that he wasn't. He also keeps a diary which I enjoyed reading because it gave his point of view on things.

There is an Esquimaux lady that is on the Terror. They call her Silence because something chewed off her tongue. She was brought there with her father or husband, they are not sure and I will let you read about that little mystery.

I was freaked out by Silence the whole book.

But there was a lot more going on there than meets the eye. One of my favorite crew members was Irving, he was such a nice guy and he was told by Captain Crozier to watch over Silence because he didn't trust her. Boy did he see some crazy stuff going on with her.Surviving this month-long chase is another issue when everyone else on the planet is watching—and willing to turn him in for the reward.

I'm not sure why the TV series couldn't have shown Silna out away from the ship somewhere making this offering. The Cabin at the End of the World. Tommy Evans from the waist down. Publication Details Publisher: Carrion Comfort.
