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!
Absolutely amazing and unbelievable story. That should be required reading in schools! I can't think of a single person I know that would not thoroughly enjoy this adventure tale.
The perfect read while driving through frozen Pennsylvania fields in the middle of winter. It's an intense thriller of survival which will put your own boring issues in perspective.
An absolute thrilling listen. The narration was incredible. Edge of your seat excitement and anticipation. The ship Endeavor was aptly named for the epic journey of Shackleton and his crew. Even though the expedition's goal was not realized, Shackleton was larger than life and responsible for saving the lives of his men due to his strong leadership and astute situational awareness.
The narrator's voice was a perfect fit to the story being told. Never a dull moment in this amazing true story.
