Fascinating book

After reading "The Terror", a fictional book by Dan Simmons in which he takes the historical account of the Franklin expedition and adds his own unique touch of supernatural horror, I became intrigued by the story of the fated Franklin explorers. The incredible amount of suffering and agony these men must have endured is heart-wrenching, and I wanted to understand more about what we know now about this fateful story. I felt in a way that by reading about all these researchers had managed to uncover about this expedition I could somehow pay homage to what these sailors suffered in the name of exploration. The book is wonderfully detailed and the descriptions fascinating. It's also show the difference all these years make in our scientific and technological ability. Definitely worth the read.
