I have not read any Simmons yet but I have his Hyperion omnibus on the shelf. How do his other works compare with these? I notice he writes horror too but those get lower marks at Goodreads.
I can't say that it was badly written. I admit to not finishing it. But my reason was that the author had based the entire tale on actual events that include the still unsolved mystery of what became of the Terror and her crew. He just superimposed his own nightmarish version of possible (or not so possible) events. So I was put off and abandoned it.Loved Hyperion Cantos but avoid The Terror - most cliched bag of crap I ever had the misfortune to attempt to read...
