I have a great interest in weather, so his lack of information as it related to accumulations of snow, left me a bit empty in the end. Having said that, the author does a wonderful job placing you in the position of each character. Why they decided to go out, why they stayed, and when they risked life to help others. It was a enjoyable, and when the memory of details in the story fade, I will listen to it again.
I loved the abridged version so much that I purchased the unabridged version as soon as it came out. If you have the slightest interest in science you will enjoy this book. I had become accustomed to Bill Bryson's voice, and the unabridged version has some English chap narrating.
