This was an incredibly interesting and inspiring book. You will find yourself in amazement at what these men endured. It truly puts ones current trials in life in perspective.
Cold. Survival. Trapped.
That it was true.
No, he was good, but I could use a little more differentiation between voices.
It's gonna be cold.
Fantastic book, takes a bit to get going, but if you put yourself in these guys shoes, holy crap! Once it gets moving, what a tale!
My highest marks. Incredible story and fanstastic narration. I regretted having to go to sleep at times! This is something's he whole family can gather around the fireplace to listen to on a dark and wintery night. Highly recommended.
I knew virtually nothing of Shakelton nor this journey, but was absolutely riveted from start to finish. I will carry this tale of human endurance and the will to survive for longer than their journey.
Simon Prebble's performance was exceptional, capturing the author's words and the men of the Endurance's ordeal.
This is a great book to read for a reality check in today's world. The ability of what the human body and mind can endure when determined is amazing
A compelling story of human perseverance. You empathize with every set back and cheer their achievements. Simon Prebble passionately incarnates each individual. See the Kodak website for Hurley's amazing photographs.
The story of a trip to the South Pole that ended in disaster. The struggles the people had to go through just to survive are amazing. The book was so fascinating, I bought the hardcover for my dad.
Wonderful story that more people should know about. Endurance was entertaining and informative regarding the battle these men had in fighting to survive and the necessity of coming together to do so.
