"Arctica" is actually three mysteries in one. It takes an average
reader about a half hour to get to the "solve-it" page of each
episode, and 20 minutes or so to read the touching Conclusion. Lots of
illuminating sidenotes and appendices, too.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
In 1833, amid rumors of sickness, poison and madness, a British expedition
to the Arctic disappeared without a trace. Can you use the clues you find
in the ice to determine the truth of their fate, once and for all?
IS IT SUSPENSEFUL?
Oh yeah. Especially since it's largely based on true stories!
Episode 1: medical science and human health. Episode 2: microbiology and
life science. Episode 3: biochemistry. And literacy, problem solving skills
and deductive reasoning are tested throughout!
