An amazing tale of endurance written in a manner impossible to put down. Possibly the greatest British explorer of all time? A man to be admired.

Great book - language as probably used in 1914 onwards. No technology, no GPS, pure graft and spirit of adventure and the thirst for knowledge.

This book has stood the test of time. The thrilling events are still thrilling, even when one knows the outcome. Shackleton remains my hero.

I was hoping for a bit more of a storyline really, it rickled long a bit and drifted off into an ending that you could have blinked and missed

A great account of the expedition, how men survived and totally relied on their colleagues in the age of little or no communication.

It's hard going to start off with as the beginning is getting through the ice floes but bear with it as it gets so much better.
