I could not make it through more than a few chapters of this book. It starts out as an uneventful narrative and I could not make myself stick with it long enough to see if it ever improved.
This audio book is about three and a half hours long. After the first thirty minutes I was convinced the contents could have been distilled down to something much smaller. It rambles about multiple column lists and anecdotes of important or life changing finds while throwing out items. Some of which sound made up. This is good and useful information that probably could have been shared in less than a fifth of the time. Maybe some will find the style entertaining but I did not.
I love this story. I have seen the movie Alive, read the book and now listened to Nando Parrado's book (one of the survivors) and this is the best of the three. This is a powerful story that provides the reader with perspective on their own life.
