This book is a MUST for folks interested in polar exploration. Similar to Terra Incognita, it's a modern (female) author looking back to the great age of exploration- in this case the Andree expedition by balloon to the North Pole in 1897.
Wow! I loved it, couldn't put it down. The research that author Bea Uusma did to get at the bottom of the expeditioners' demise (including med school) was not only thorough but presented in a way that brought the story to (my) life.
Hopefully this gets translated to english quickly! There are alot of english-speaking-polar-exploration-fans who will love this book. (And right now I'm feeling lucky to be swe-eng bilingual!) ( )

Mycket, mycket spännande bok! Kapitel 7: In bakom orden är den mest krävande för den ta läsare in i själva expeditionen. Nästan outhärdlig. Hur kan dessa människor ha orkat? Kanske något negativ med boken, för mig, är typsnitten (very very small font) och att Nils Strindbergs foto på framsidan är skymd av boken titel. Jag läser på baksidan att boken ges ut samtidigt i en illustrerade utgåva. Se framemot att hitta också den. ( )
