Compelling adventure story, albeit slow in places

You will never look at a cold winter night the same again after listening to this book. The author paints a harrowing picture of survival for Shackleton and his men on the Antarctic ice, and one can only marvel that humans were able to survive such an ordeal of unimaginable hardship.

Listened to it with my kids and they did, admittedly, lose interest and bail on it. The middle hours of the book entail long, repetitive descriptions of ice and toil. Stay with it, though, as the epilogue is worth it. I would appreciate knowing what happened after the story in this book ended. I’ll have to look it up now online.

Good enough to listen twice!

A great listen! My kids and I enjoyed twice (a year between listens). It is a bit violent and there is some swearing, so not for young kids. The narration is perfect — accent, tempo, and inflection.
