This is the most fascinating story I have ever heard. If you want to be caught up in a true story that makes your own problems seem trivial, this is the one. These rough men are an inspiration to say the least.
Fantastic narration of a mind boggling human achievement. Utterly gripping tale. It puts our leisurely lives and complaints in incredible context.
Loved it! This story grabs your attention and doesn't let go! What a story of survival! The narrator was great, as well.
so well read that I now have the voices of those characters stuck in my head. It is am incredible journey that can't be felt in a two paragraph summary on Wikipedia, and ten hour book still can't compare to the 20+ month stretch that team endured. This has been very satisfying reading.
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.
