Incredible story from start to finish. Shackleton's story is one everyone should know about. Alfred Lansing did a great job re-telling the story with vivid detail.
This was one of the first books i bought at Audible. In fact it was a Daily Deal. As an OTR truck driver I listened almost whole books at a time. OMg(oodness) by the time book was over I was soooo sick of living on ice. I was bauling!!! Alll I'm going to say. Great narrator.
Mark/love Audible/OTR truck driver/ 130+ books
I knew the story- I knew who would live or die. This story is still compelling- well read, well written and at its center a story that is amazing. Endurance may have been the name of the ship but Shackelton and his men had it- they endured!
It's truly mind blowing listening to the account of Shackelton's crew. What I'm most amazed by is the ability to survive in adverse conditions for extended periods of time and still have a hopeful and even cheerful outlook. These men are my new heroes. Simon did a fantastic job reading and the story was well written. I highly recommend it.
Yes! This book has a plot-line that only true life can inspire. The resourcefulness and determination of the crew in absolute horrendous conditions is an inspiration to anyone. The story keeps you begging for more and more. I will listen to this audiobook again!
The story of endurance, grit, and survival. Inspirational and heroic!
This audiobook is amazing. I love Simon Prebble's narration. His delivery makes it seem that he was there, with the crew, just a few feet away, going on this amazing journey with them.
Yes. It is edge of the seat stuff!
Superb. Get the audiobook. You will not regret it!
