Review

I am in awe of Dan Simmons (Stephen King)

Dan Simmons is a giant among novelists (Lincoln Child)

The Abominable by the talented Dan Simmons is a sprawling high-concept novel that synthesises historical fact and very modern pulse-raising adventure set on the slopes of Mount Everest in the 1920s, with tangled but subtly well-ordered plots . . . The Abominable may be his most impressive book to date (Good Book Guide)

His last 'cold' book, The Terror, was terrific. This appears to have sprung out of that and is cleverly presented as if true. It's a wonderful, chilling tale of an Everest expedition just after Mallory vanished . . . It is stunning (The Bookseller)

Set aside a few days to read this book that will enlighten and reward you with a story of heroism and decency in the face of appalling cruelty. A story of such emotional resonance it will still be with you long after you turn the final page. It will feel as though you are saying goodbye to friends you have grown to love and respect. It is amongst the best of books (Forbidden Planet)

Book Description

An epic, genre-defying thriller, The Abominable blends historical fact with spine-tingling drama to create one of the most chilling and unforgettable novels you will ever read. From the bestselling author of Hyperion and The Terror.
