I did finish it, but it was a tedious read for me. I had seen this book recommended in Forbes. Understand that the story follows the true diary of events. So...with relavely few twists or turns in the plot you have cold starving men, worrying about the ice, killing some dogs for food, killing some penguins, killing some more dogs, finding more penguins and so on for a long time. I will say that I developed a fondness for the character Shackleton, the crew's captain and I appreciated his leadership skills. He was a great man and a great leader.
