Beautifully written and told story. Made me feel in the jungle and understand what the world felt like in those days.
Cultural and entertaining. If looking for this, then a must read.
I'm not one to read non fiction all that frequently, but this is a book that was recommended to me time and time again. My god, I am so glad that I finally took up that recommendation. This is an extraordinary adventure about extraordinary men, told with an extraordinary narrative. Listen, read, whatever your medium of choice, River of Doubt is not to be missed.
The narrator of this book is excellent. His voice is smooth and strong depicting the character of the men on this journey--smooth Rough Riders.
The human spirit prevails against all odds in this amazing story of Roosevelts expedition. Never a boring moment, whether the actual events while traversing the jungle or when the author is describing various flora and fauna of the jungle. The narrator was terrific. I love that he uses different voices for the various character in the story. Bravo. A favorite that we have told everyone about.
The most incredible tale of any Journey to any place by any person of all time. Best yet, the tale is true. Griping saga, tragic heroes and national icons. Should be #1 on anyone's outdoor endurance reading list. 10 stars on a scale of 5.
An outstanding book, masterfully narrated that tells the fascinating story of Roosevelt's exploration of one of this planet's most inhospitable environs. I couldn't put it down...and I'm confident that you will be drawn into the story in similar fashion.

No extreme reaction
I enjoyed this audiobook, I've definitely heard/read better adventure books, but this one wasn't bad. I would recommend it to friends.
