    Description

    The Terror: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

    The men on board the HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. But what they don't expect is a monstrous predator lurking behind the Arctic ice. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a horrifying end, Captain Francis Crozier takes command, leading his surviving crewmen on a last desperate attempt to flee south across the ice.

    But another winter is rapidly approaching, and with it, scurvy and starvation. Crozier and his men may find that there is no escaping the terror stalking them southward. And with the crushing cold and the fear of almost certain death at their backs, the most horrifying monster among them may be each other. 

    Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

    Commentaires

    "The Terror is nothing less than a revelation. Dan Simmons is a giant among novelists, and I am in awe of his achievement." (Lincoln Child)

    "Dan Simmons writes with the salty grace and precision of Patrick O'Brian. But in piling supernatural nightmare upon historical nightmare, layering mystery upon mystery, he has produced a turbocharged vision of popular doom." (Men's Journal)

    "The best and most unusual historical novel I have read in years." (The Boston Globe)

    The Terror

    This book was Rey interesting. It basically followed the account of the HMS Terror but had some additional characters that were fictional that added even more suspense to an already frightening position to be in

    Outstanding!!!

    This might be favorite book currently. Watched the series on AMC when it was first aired. Read the book and now listened to it. The booktrack version is by far the best. It really sets the tone of the story. The narrator does an excellent job of telling the story through the eyes of the different characters. Well written characters that even the tv series cast right. Dan Simmons’ best work!

    Historischer Mystery-Horror in der Arktis

    Dan Simmons war mir schon zuvor als herausragender Schriftsteller bekannt. Mit The Terror bestätigt er diesen Ruf erneut.

    Die Handlung basiert auf der fehlgeschlagenen Franklin-Expedition in den 1840er Jahren. In dieser sollten zwei stark modifizierte Schiffe der britischen Royal Navy die theoretisch angenommene Nord-West-Passage, den Seeweg von Atlantik in den Pazifik nördlich Kanadas, erschließen. Die beiden Schiffe mit über 120 Personen wurden nie wieder gesehen (die Wracks wurden erst nach intensiver Suche in den 2010er Jahren gefunden).

    Vor diesem historischen und offensichtlich exzellent recherchierten Hintergrund, malt Dan Simmons den dramatischen Überlebenskampf der Crew von Erebus und Terror gegen die lebensfeindliche Kälte der Arktis, den Hungertod, Meuterei und das unbekannte Wesen, das die eingefrorenen Schiffe belauert...

    Der Sprecher, Tom Sellwood, leistet herausragende Arbeit. Man fragt sich tatsächlich manchmal, ob bei der Bandbreite an Charakteren nicht mehrere Sprecher zu Werke waren.

    Der sogenannte Booktrack ergänzt das Hörbuch um dezente Hintergrundgeräusche, die die Stimmung verstärken und nie störend wirken.
