The narrator was incredible. He added slight brogues and accents to differentiate the men. Just the right amount...
The story is unbelievable. Truly amazing.
I would recommend this audio book to anyone who likes good books. I think it is appropriate for kids over 10 and grannies under 110.
I rarely write reviews, but I cannot recommend this audio book enough.
this was a great book. It was a little hard to get into but definitely rewarding at the end. Such perseverance and faith. Shackleton is and inspiration.
My first audiobook. I listen to it at work, and near the end I had to take a break because I was getting too worked up. An incredible story. Shackleton is the boss.
Warm, vivid, empathetic and stirring writing. A great adventure story. And wonderful narration. Listening to this book helped me remember the stories I love and want to live. The characters are relatable, and all the more so with Prebble's voices and spot-on performance. Doesn't feel like an "old" book at all, though written decades ago. It's elegant and suspenseful and just well-wrought all around, I think.
A beautifully read book. This is the most amazing story of adventure and survival I've never read and I'm just so sad it's over. You will be simply amazed at this incredible story.
If this were a movie script it would seem too farfetched to be true...much like The Revenant. To have brought all hands back alive after seemingly daily perils is beyond amazing
The reader does an excellent job - the story is truly astonishing. I so respect the resolution and strength all of the crew!
Shackleton - his leadership and reason are inspiring!
I really did listen to it at every opportunity. It kept me interested throughout the story and I found it hard to quit.
Excellent. Inspiring. Historically fascinating. A great period piece - understanding the tools they had at hand and lack of options for communication, etc. Great book.
