Subject Matter: A retelling of the brief (6 days), less than harrowing adventure of four American climbers who come off more as spoiled whiners than victimized hostages. Yes, they did endure cold, hunger, thirst, and fear, but not to the degree that makes for a truly compelling narrative. There is so little content that the author seems forced to insert a lengthy recap of the unsettle politics of the region. If you want to explore true heroics, try ?Endurance: Shackelton's Incredible Voyage? by Alfred Lansing. Now that?s an adventure!
Narrator: Greg Child - Excellent; he handles the difficult pronunciations well and provides convincing accents when needed.
Audio Quality: Reviewed-Format 4 Excellent, distortion-free with consistent sound levels

Yea there were a few parts that seemed to drag, but I listened as though I was in the story doing and being there with Beth and Tommy. There was a lot of comic relief too. Its not the best book I've ever listened to, but I'd still recomend it.
