This book is not as exhaustive as the other one on Audible (Endurence), but is still well done and includes some details and insight that the other doesn't. The narrator also tries to immatate the accents of various crew members, so there's Scottish accents, Australian, Cockney, Welsh, Canadian, and so forth. This definitely livens things up quite a bit, although the story is so riveting it doesn't need it.

I loved this book. I finished it in one sitting. I could not stop until the end.
While this is hardly a comprehensive account of the expedition ("Endurance" by Alfred Lansing is excellent in this regard, with much more detail and depth), I really prefer this telling -- very epic and cinematic.
My only criticism is the narration paled a bit in comparison to the narrative itself, but with material this inspiring that is a tall order -- and, frankly, I was so enrapt that I didn't even notice most of the time.
