    After recently going on a trip to Cape Horn and watching a documentary about Shackleton on the boat I wanted to know more. This was a very good book and only took me 3 days to get through. You keep wondering how they could survive after all they went though, but somehow they pulled it off. The will to live and look after one another is amazing. Simon Prebble narration was outstanding and the voices he had for the characters added the overall satisfaction of the book. Good read.

    Loved this book! I kept thinking, if this was fiction, I would find it unbelievable. If you like adventure, survival and leadership, I think you will find this a good read.
