    On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane slammed into the Greenland ice cap. Four days later, a B-17 on the search-and-rescue mission also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men on the B-17 survived. The U.S. military launched a second daring rescue operation, but the Grumman Duck amphibious plane sent to find the men vanished. In this thrilling adventure, Mitchell Zuckoff offers a spellbinding account of these harrowing crashes and the fate of the survivors and their would-be saviors.

    What did you like best about Frozen in Time? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the story and hated the narration. I didn't pay attention to who the narrator was when I bought the book; however, an hour into it I realized it had to be the author. There was no other explanation for the poor narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was almost whispering at times and there was no inflection in his voice. It was basically monotone for over 8 hours. Also, the narration was not succinct. Another reviewer called it a slurring of the words and I completely agree.


    Was Frozen in Time worth the listening time?

    I greatly regret purchasing the audiobook strictly because of the poor narration. I highly recommend those interested in this book to purchase the e-book or hardcopy/paperback instead of the audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this book for the story, but only as an e-book or hardcopy/paperback purchase.
