Overview

The Miskatonic Antarctic Expedition of 1930-31 is led by William Dyer. Using a newly invented boring device, a group of men explore the area of McMurdo Sound, which is opposite the Ross Ice Shelf, where famous explorer Byrd led an expedition in recent time.

One of the members of the expedition, Lake, has found some unusual soapstone pieces and wants to set up a sub-expedition to the northwest. He finds mountains that are taller than the tallest known ranges on Earth and the frozen remains of monstrous creatures that are like nothing ever seen on the planet. He assesses them to be half-animal and half-vegetable and that their brain development far beyond anything human.

In July 2010 it was announced that the film would be made in 3D and that James Cameron would become producer; Tom Cruise was attached to star.

This book is annotated and includes a critical essay and biography about the life and times of H.P. Lovecraft is also included with this book.

The tale tkes some time to get going,but after about a quater way into the book, the story really takes off and becomes intresting. Do not be turned away if you dont undrstand al tpthe science jargon the first twenty pages. By page twenty five the book will shift from scientific dscovries an descriptions of wonderment to a more eerie and sinister atmosphere.

I loved the material, but the voice performer is terrible.  Nearly every sentence ends with the exact same inflection and it takes you out of the experience every couple seconds.  It's a tragedy, because the immersive horror of the material would so easily otherwise suck you into the story.

Perhaps I misunderstood, but my Nook Color does not display any of the illustrations mentioned in the description. This book displays simple text and nothing else. Considering you can get the complete works of H.P. Lovecraft in other Nook editions for less, this book is quite expensive for what it is

Yes, the first part has a ton of scientific wording. But if you just tryto remember the narrator is usually talking about layers of rock that show different stages of Earth's history; you should do well. I was so fascinated, I read it all in one night!
