4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite 5 stars, but it does the job., 21 Jan. 2015
light, comfortable to hold, easy to read. Controls take a bit of practice. This replaces my old,original Kindle, so no contest, Miles better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recommended for anyone with a love for adventure and real life heroes. Truly amazing how these men coped with such primitive equipment. However, from modern perspective, quite shocking. (especially with regard to the poor animals who had the misfortune to be chosen for the expedition).

5.0 out of 5 stars Where to start, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shocking, funny, sad, thought provoking, deeply moving. The story of this expedition is so well known, but the journal has to be read to understand (!) why these men did it.
In 100 years, perhaps readers will view the astronauts of today in the way that we view Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton. Lack of knowledge and poor equipment are the least of the shocking revelations when viewed with modern eyes.
