  • Abridged

    4 out of 5 stars 359

Their captain's insane vision of a Northwest Passage has kept the crewmen of HMS Terror trapped in Arctic ice for two years without a thaw. But the real threat to their survival isn't the ever-shifting landscape of white, the provisions that have turned to poison, or the ship slowly buckling in the grip of the frozen ocean. The real threat is whatever is out in the frigid darkness, stalking their ship, snatching and brutally killing their fellow seamen.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Terror to be better than the print version?

why would anyone...ANYONE put up an abridged version of ANY book?

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

Vance has a good voice.
