I can't recommend this highly enough! The type of character that Captain Scott and his crew showed during their demise is so admirable that it should be the benchmark toward which anyone should try to emulate in the face of similar circumstances.

Sutherland is an excellent reader.
First hand account by the man himself. Written in language that is easily understood today, making this an easy listen.
My only complaint is the audio levels vary at different points, forcing me to sometimes crank the volume all the way up.
As I have just stated to judge the book of such a person is to judge the man and that would be unfair since of course, I do not know the man suffice it to say that his last journals are full of interesting detail or rather it would be interesting were it not for the appalling performance of the narator who makes even the best bits seem boring so that it is hard to concentrate on the narative. Also I wonder, did the producer allow his six-year-old son loose with the controls or did he take a drink instead and his entineer too? Something of the sort I think since the volume goes up and down and clarity is inconsistentand very poor most of the time. A real shame since it spoils the narative to the point of sending one to sleep so taht parts of the book must be re-read to get the gist of it all over again. All in all, a good book totally spoiled by ameturish production. A disappointment and a travesty to such a great and historical document.
