I have no doubt that this is an interesting, compelling book, but I had a hard time with it in the audio format. I hope the book has pictures, because it felt incomplete without them. I know very little about kayaking and found it difficult to follow the author's descriptions of situations the kayakers were in, though I have to say that I think he did about the best he could have done. There were quite a few people involved and I had a little trouble keeping them straight. To sum it up, it couldn't hold my attention to the end, and it made me feel like I was missing out because I couldn't see any of the scenery the author described. An abridged version might have been a little better - there was just too much information to absorb during daily commutes. It's a fascinating story, but maybe not one for an audio book.

I love adventure stories but this one left me a little emotionally exhausted and ready for it to end. The beautiful descriptions of the river and the paddlers' skill was overshadowed by all the bickering and threats between expedition members. Definitely not a story for aspiring leaders.
