Arctic exploration has always fasinated me. A real good listen.
Absolutely one of the best reads i have enjoyed in awhile of this genre. Thrilling. Part fiction, part truth. Trapped in ice in the cold winter the Narwhal holds a ship full of heros but unfortunately no one will ever know who they all were. This was a very moving read. If you are interested or would like to know about the voyage of the Narwhal this is a great book to read.
This was pretty good - a little slow in parts, but overall interesting. It felt like a sequel to _The Terror_ about a mission looking into John Franklin's disappearance. It was well researched and the character of Zeke was especially easy to hate - he made a good villain in that there wasn't anything redeeming about him.

From a womans view she writes of exploration,romance, and extreme conditions
Historical Fiction about the mid nineteenth century Artic explorations. Well written and good for book discussion. We did a companion read with the short story from Ship Fever. There's a cross over character.
