    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    One of, if not, the best book I have ever experienced. I listened to it twice and I will listen to it again.
    Excellent tale of the character of man.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Excellent, period"
    Overall

    I do believe it is the best book I have ever experienced. Undaunted Courage and Endurance are about a group of men. Unbroken is about one man. Very inspring. Thank you Ms. Hilenbrand for working through your tiredness to deliver such a wonderful work.
