I couldn't have imagined a more appropriate narrator. This story, being true, and so extreme of circumstances, motivates even the faintest of leaders within us all. To be able to know men of that character, would be an admirable experience.
right near the top.
story was fascinating and very well written/presented
no, took me a few weeks to finish it but I often listen to chapters a few times before moving on.
As one of the most trusted reviewers on Audible I am under constant pressure for quality reviews.
Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctica expedition of 1914 - 1917 is one of the most incredible adventure stories of all time. This book details the Endurance crew's struggle for survival after their expedition gets stuck in the pack ice of the Weddell Sea.
A great story of the will to survive and to take all your shipmates with you. Shackleton was a superman in many ways, not a soul was lost. The hardships were unbelievable and more numerous than can be counted and yet they all survived!
An incredible journey that should not be missed.
Narrator is spot on with a very David Attenbourgh kind of presence. Accents done well also.
Obviously the story is old, but it has aged very well with our technology that makes this tale seem all the more amazing.
Hold on to your hat when you listen to this book! After a somewhat slow start, the action picks up and you hold your breath to the end. I was fully mesmerized with the thrilling story of Shackleton and his crew - they faced long odds of survival and danger at every turn. The performance was compelling and I almost felt every icy blast of water, every gust of wind
An excellent story of human accomplishment, especially in failure. Also, good narration. Australian, Scottish, and other accents were performed very well and added to the feel of the story.
Endurance brings to life quite possibly the most amazing story of adventure and survival ever told. We follow Shackleton and his crew on an expedition gone wrong, and the story has you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I highly recommend this to anyone with a sense of adventure.
This was one of the most incredible stories I have ever listened to! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who listens to audiobooks or reads. I was riveted from the start. The narrator did a great job and was so pleasant to listen to. If you enjoy this book, I'm sure you will also love the story of the Lewis and Clark expedition, titled, "Undaunted Courage ", the approx. 10 hour version.
