    Antarctica lends itself to tales of adventure and heartbreak. The landscape is polarized, beautiful and deadly in equal measure. But Alexa doesn't scale mountains or trek to the Pole. Instead, armed with an old cookbook, she attempts to create three-course meals with no electricity or running water and struggles to defrost meat in sub-zero temperatures. Life in a thin nylon tent in the company of scientists, explorers, and eccentrics soon begins to take on extraordinary dimensions.

    But it's a good fun story that easily hooks you into listening further.

    Sure, there is some whinging and moaning about the conditions that the writer finds herself in, but I think that this is somewhat exagerated by the Australian accent of the reader which has the distinctive up-rising inflection at the end of sentances, which makes almost everything seem like a question.

    In all, I found this audio-book to be a light, entertaining story. Perfect for summer trips, or lazing about in bed on a Sunday morning.

    In The Best American Erotica 2002, Maggie Estep relates the surprising sexual happenings in a detox clinic, Francesca Lia Block explores the aquatic fantasies haunting a surfer, and Ernie Conrick introduces a tennis star and sex symbol who surrenders to an unusual coach. In these 23 stories you will also find cutting-edge work from other luminaries and from the Internet, where the next wave of erotica has matured into some of the most enticing writing around.

    All I can say is that 'The Best of American Erotica' has come along way since 2002. I'm a fan of the books in general, which is why I decided to purchase this, however didn't find it as erotic as the later versions. In fact, I found very little erotic in this edition.

    I wouldn't recommend it.
