Wow. One of my favorite books of all time and one, if it weren't so large, I would recommend for my book club. It is rich and satisfying, mysterious, terrifying (no pun intended) and a ripping good read. The supernatural elements would look silly in the hands of a less masterful writer but somehow Simmons makes you believe in the unbelievable. It will make you want to read more of the Franklin Expedition and Arctic exploration in general, and isn't that the mark of a truly great work of historical fiction? That it makes you want more - of the "real thing"?
