    1. I picked this book up for free from a library discard pile what a find I really loved the descriptions of Antartica I felt like I was actually there without the cold A quick and intriguing read about human survival, humanity, and our connection to the wild world I would give it 4.5 stars


    2. This story was so captivating that I kept my whole family intrigued retelling it on a family roadtrip They could hardly wait to hear what happened next It s a book most men would enjoy reading I learned a lot about Antarctica and loved visualizing the scenery Remarkably descriptive Even felt freezing while reading it

    5. I ve never wanted to go to the Antarctic, too cold, too dark, too much ice But this tale of a man who survives the Antarctic alone for the winter with only a tent, sleeping bag and the body of his commanding officer, made me appreciate the majesty and beauty of the region.
