This review is from: The Crossing. Conquering the Atlantic in the World's Toughest Rowing Race (Paperback)
I had doubts about this book as, admittedley not knowing much about him, I didn't think Ben Fogle was the type of person I wanted to read about. However, the book was recommended so I gave it a go.
And I'm glad I did. A really excellent, gripping book. It's very honest about what the guys went through, their relationship with each other and life on board. The story of the crossing is gripping and I couldn't put it down.
The early part of the book did pose a few questions, such as why they were so under prepared when taking on such a mammoth task but otherwise I was gripped. One of the best books I've read in a long time.
