A thrilling story that kept me listening non-stop for hours. Masterfully narrated, it was hard to listen through all the hardship. But the spirit of these men, Shackleton’s leadership and downright bravado, really keep you on the edge of your seat.
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.
Great story, gets better as you go. They went through so much! Shackleton and his men a group for the ages.
Absolutely incredible story of survival
Narrator was great. The book was a little longer than it needed to be though.
Excellent account of survival against all that nature could throw at these brave men.
Excellent! Steven Spielberg should make it into a movie! Shackleton may not have accomplished the original voyage but his leadership and determination to save his men is absolutely remarkable for all time.
extremely informative and well delivered. I followed the book up by watching the documentary "Chasing Shakelton" Listened twice so far. lol
such a shocking adventure story. highly recommended!
Riveting from beginning to end!
What an incredible story. I can't imagine the ordeal these men went through. Narration was great also!
Riveting story. Definitely a must listen.
Terrific book. Makes you ask - what is impossible for human beings....?
Unbelievable story, that’s a given - but great reading and amazing detail in this book
Amazingly narrated - I felt calm while reading this but completely enthralled and awestruck by the story.
This amazing account of the Antarctic crossing provides a glimse into humanity and drive to survive incredible hardships. Well written and narrated.
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.
