3.0 out of 5 stars Why read this?, 17 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Endurance: True Story of Shackleton's Voyage in the Antarctic (Audio CD)
I have nothing positive or negative to say about this book as I have not read it. But, if you're considering this - why not consider "South: The Last Antarctic Expedition of Shackleton and the Endurance" and read about the heroic exploits in the words of Shackleton himself? It's his diary and an amazing read. It will probably get you closer to the experience than any 3rd party perspective.

Because sometimes a professional writer can portray the drama of an event better than the protaganist themselves. Lansing's fine book reads like a novel, yet is factually correct and includes original sources such as Shackleton's diary entries. Having read both I think Lansin'g novel is a better summary and really placed me in their shoes. Open your mind a little. And why give a book you haven't read three stars?

The above comment says it all really.
If brains were dynamite,you wouldn't have enough to blow your hat off ! What a complete idiot.

The book is superb,compulsive reading,historically accurate and accompanied by wonderful photos.
Oh and many diary extracts from Shackelton and his team.

A Customer,
You can make your comment into a comment and nothing more by adding it to the bottom of one of the other reviews. Then you aren't forced to give the book an unfair rating.

I have to agree with all the comments here; your remarks just serve to irritate. While we are on the subject of 'considering', have you considered that a fair proportion of the the people who read Lansing's work will have either already read Shackleton's 'South', or will go on to read it. And again, why give a book you haven't read three stars?
