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.

I read this after a biography of Thomas Crean who almost made the last group to pitch for the Pole. Crean went in to serve with Shakleton. Scott was a bit of a snob and really only had time for the officers. In the end it was his downfall. Very absorbing read if you can get over Scott's style.

I got this book because my group required a book dominated by the climate. This book satisfies this and more!! I did find it interesting but a bit too much detail, of necessity being repetitive, as it is written in diary form. I learned that I was completely ignorant about so famous a name so it has been an experience.. The good part is the comradeship built between the group of men, The bad part the ponies who had a terrible life both on the boat and on the land were eventually killed and eaten by both men and dogs. A somewhat depressing book but glad I read it.

This an account of Scot and his colleagues expedition to the Antarctic in 1910 onward. It is taken direct from his diary. (n that respect, it is notwritten in the most easily followed writing. The reader needs to works through some repetitive passages to find a true insight into the exploration leader's feelings and strong-mindedness. In doing this this the reader should find true wonderment at the sacrifice made by the members of the expedition.

I've found this book very interesting. I have gained a great insight into the terrible conditions these heroic men endured, more so then just reading an historical account of the expedition. Their fortitude and determination, their comradeship and cheerful spirit are inspirational. Pure heroism all the way through.
