Id compare this with The Longest Walk, and The Endurance. Both detail the incredible limits of human endurance under extreme circumstance for survival.
Having been through hardships of my own, stories like these are very encouraging and inspiring. You can never give up on hope. Thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Endurance is one of my top 3 favourite books from audible. Loved it!
This was the first time I had heard Simon Prebble, and he is the best Narrator Ive heard along with Stuart Langton.
In my early highschool years I was given this book as a birthday present. It was the most fascinating books I had ever read and couldnt put it down. Then I had to share it! But I think listening to it again as the audio version has been an even more exciting experience. Forever the question in your mind is, Will they make it? I couldnt recommend a better book. The lengths humans will strive to survive is perhaps greater then we may ever realize until placed in adverse circumstances. Never can a story better illustrate this then the true story of Endurance: Shakletons Incredible Voyage.
Endurance, hope, will
Endurance and We Die Alone
The scape from the camp
When two of the characters died in the Gobi.
I am always inspired by true stories of survival. There are 3 that I know of that amaze me almost beyond belief. This is one of those!
