Endurance is a story that shows the depth of the fortitude of man; written so eloquently that it frequently borders poetry. Simply fantastic.
I am not generally a fan of nonfiction, but this was one of the most thrilling, inspiring books I have ever read or listened to, in any category, fiction, nonfiction, mystery, or thriller. Highly highly recommended to all readers!
Eighteen years ago I first read this story to my young children. It was great to revisit it in this wonderful reading. This story of the determination of this small group in such dire circumstances has served as inspiration for me in some very difficult situations of my own. Endurance is a trait that we all need through life's storms.
I love non-fiction adventure stories and this one is in my top 5 all time favorites. If I didn't know it happened like it did I'd never believe it was possible.
This is a gut - wrenching story that will keep you on the edge of your seat even though you know how it ends. Simon Pebble is an excellent narrator, and gave full flavor to the characters and the story.
I love the determination and teamwork of the crew. How they managed to survive is beyond me. This audio book has great narration and the story of these men is inspiring.
