As war clouds darkened over Europe in 1914, a party led by Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to make the first crossing of the entire Antarctic continent via the Pole. But their initial optimism was short-lived as ice floes closed around their ship, gradually crushing it and marooning twenty-eight men on the polar ice. Alone in the world's most unforgiving environment, Shackleton and his team began a brutal quest for survival.

I tried listening to this story but it was so slow. I know this story and was expecting something a lot more interesting to listen too. I am not sure if the detail was so much that I felt like the author was trying too hard to paint a picture for the reader. I found my mind wandering and just could not get past a few pages. I suggest listening to the example first to know if you want to burn a credit on this.

I enjoyed this book because it portrayed women who were educated and persuing goals that were out of the norm for the time. I love the twists this story makes through out. If you don't mind a few F words and sexual scenes I highly recommend this for a good beach read!

You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool.

I will start by saying I love Chelsea Handler, She is hysterical, real and ballsy! I like that because she says what everyone wants to but doesn't. I am not sure if it is because Chelsea Handler was not the narrator or it just wasn't as funny as her other books. However, it was entertaining. It is what it is. I did have some laugh out loud moments. If you just want to read this in order to read Lies Chelsea Handler told then I say go for it.
