Sintesi dell'editore

The year was 1915. Equipment and food supplies were totally inadequate. After battling its way for six weeks through thousands of miles of pack ice and located only a day's sail from its destination, the Endurance became locked inside an island of ice. Yet Ernest Shackleton enabled all 27 of his men to survive for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas - leadership without equal. This gripping account is based on contemporaneous diaries and interviews conducted by the author with these exceptional men.
©1959 Alfred Lansing (P)2000 by The Audio Partners Publishing Corp.

"One of the most gripping, suspenseful, intense stories anyone will ever read [or hear]." (Chicago Tribune)
"One of the greatest adventure stories of our time." (The New York Times Book Review)

Get the Unabridged one (also on Audible)

This incredible story should be heard in all its detail. This version is good; the unabridged one is phenomenal.

The Best You'll Find

I truly enjoy reading the remarkable tales of unsung heroes in this world. Ernest Shackleton is one of them. Start to finish, this book kept me thinking, waiting, and imagining like few books ever have. Forget reality shows, forget mysteries... This book is a dose of "true reality and courage". Absolutely Fabulous!!

I looked forward to my commute

This must be the most incredible human survival story ever. A great tale. Probably the best Audible book I've ever bought. I found myself unable to get out of the car because I wanted to get to the next "page". The actual hardcover book does have some wonderful pictures and maps which make the story even better, but the Audible version was great nonetheless.

The Apollo 13 Of Its Day

An extraordinary story, compellingly told. I found myself coming home from work and still listening in the driveway, riveted by the endless string of seemingly impossible challenges these brave explorers had to overcome. All of this without the benefit of radios, electricity and the like, to say nothing of a "Mission Control" to guide them. If you have any appreciation for the strength and nobility of the human spirit and will, you will enjoy this book.

Absolutely Incredible True Story!!

Certainly one of the most incredible stories of human survival and endurance in history. You will constantly be amazed at how this Ill-fated Antarctic expedition refused to quit in the face of all the fierce obstacles in the harshest conditions on Earth.

Good Leadership Lessons

Another reviewer commented that this story was the Apollo 13 of its time. That is a perfect description. Beyond that, there are lots of leadership lessons one can take from "watching" Ernest Shackleton lead a group through a prolonged and difficult time. As the story is told, he maintained leadership and vision in extraordinary times.

Unbelievable

I had heard in general terms about this adventure gone bad. But the actual events as depicted through this book which is based on the actual diaries of the members and crew of the Endurance are truly remarkable. The narration is well done. Listening to this actually made me purchase other books on the subject.

As soon as I'd finished it I started it again

This is a very good listen; because it reads like a novel I found myself having to remind myself that it all actually happened. It's a like a Jack London novel but for grown ups with added humour, factual detail and real characters.

Gripping

I now understand the astonishing extent of the crew of the Endurance's achievement. This is often ascribed to Shackleton's leadership but what came through to me from this account was the importance of individuals working together with specialist skills and maintaining each others' morale. Tim Piggott-Smith is one of the best narrators, even when not much is happening, he keeps you enthralled.

Endurance

What a fascinating and realistic story about the privations, resolve and ultimate success of a team of human beings surviving in the worst weather in the world. With each new problem the team seemed to grow stronger and I felt that the difficulties would ultimately overcome them, but no, not a chance. I was walking my dog in the woods when Shackleton and his men finally made it to South Georgia and it brought a tear to my eye. So, in the final chapter I actually gave a little cheer when everyone was safe. Marvellous!

Stunning

By far the best version of the Shackleton expedition. Concise, simply but elegantly written, this reads like a tense thriller but with real lives at stake. Piggott-Smith, who I first saw as Merrick in Jewel in the Crown, is as excellent narrating here as he was in that series.
Cannot recommend enough.
