I really liked hearing about life in Antarctica, but I grew to despise this woman. I'm not sure I've ever disliked someone in a story so much. I also did not like her writing style, I felt like she was trying too hard to sound like a good writer instead of someone telling a good story. I did like hearing about Antarctica, but I think I'd have enjoyed anyone else's stories from there more than hers... not a huge selection of recent stories from Antarctica on audible though.
I think this would be a good one to read instead of listen to the audiobook. The reader is pretty boring and unenthusiastic. I got the impression at points that he didn't really know what he was saying.
As far as the actual book, there is tons of good information, might be a little much for someone who is not a professional, and a bit light for someone who is. I thought it was worth listening to though. I'm a beginning geology student.
