Say something about yourself!
Absolutely outstanding - a riveting listen - a high octane crime story with breathtaking twists and turns. One of the best of the 40 or so audio books of this genre that I have listened to whilst out walking or driving over the last 12 months. Mike Bolt and Tina Boyd at their very best. Also brilliantly read. I will definitely buy more by this author.
This is a brilliantly written and extremely well narrated story - revolving around the build up to and the actual expedition to the South Pole in 1912 by Scott and his team. Whilst a novel, it is built on facts and all the central characters are thoroughly well covered, especially the life and exploits of Captain Oates and quite a bit on Shackleton early in the story in the earlier expedition. I enjoyed every minute of this book even though I knew what the final outcome would be. It has considerably enhanced my knowledge of the 'golden era' of Antarctic exploration and makes me want to learn more about the leading characters - Taff Evans, Birdy Bowers, the Doctor, Cherry, and many others. Marvellous book
This is a wonderful tale, woven by Hammond Innes and brilliantly narrated by Bill Wallis. He conveys the hardship and completely brings to life the tough and miserable conditions through which the main characters endure - a truly great story teller. For anyone who has ever sailed around the Channel Islands area then this is a must. I really wish that there were more of these classic books (set in the late 40s early 50s) by authors such as Hammond Innes and Neville Shute on audio book. Please record some more Hammond Innes
