    Going in I knew nothing of the story, which I think made me enjoy the book even more because I didn't know how it would end.

    But it follows the USS Jeannette and its search for a northwest passage and the theorized "Open Polar Ocean".

    Fantastic read. Highly recommend

    The author did a presentation at Google on the book and some of his research.



    Six months later, I still find myself thinking about this story. Hope some others have read it.
