"What the ice gets," replied Sir Ernest Shackleton, the expedition's unflappable leader, "the ice keeps." It did not, however, get the ship's twenty-five crew members, all of whom survived an eight-hundred-mile voyage across sea, land, and ice to South Georgia, the nearest inhabited island. First published in 1931, Endurance tells the full story of that doomed 1914-16 expedition ... Show more

Reviews of Endurance; an epic of polar adventure

Loved this book

by Gillean D on Apr 28, 2011

I loved this book because it tells the story from a more personal angle. The writing seems so fresh: you feel like you are right there with the expedition members, sharing in the sufferings and the joys. IIn my opinion it is by far the best book written on the subject.

Powerful & gripping; survival against the odds

by urchin on Feb 26, 2009

This is one of the most amazing true stories ever told, and rates highly within the group of books written about the Endurance expedition. Worsley's style differs from Shakleton's, and this book focuses more on the environment and physical journey and less on the individual characters involved. That men could survive such an ordeal is mind blowing to us pampered, coddled people of today who find it hard to deal with minor setbacks in life. The story is inspiring and I can't recommend it highly enough.
