In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

It's a great achievement to tell a story out of a few diaries that keeps you so attentionful & tense for long while awaiting for a happy ending. The reader recreated that tension & uncertainty perfectly. Pure joy to listen!

Premier récit publié par J. R. R. Tolkien, en 1937, cette histoire, inventée par l'auteur pour ses propres enfants, raconte les aventures de Bilbo, un jeune hobbit, héros malgré lui en quête d'un trésor gardé par un dragon, en compagnie de nains et du magicien Gandalf. Devenu un classique de la littérature de jeunesse, ce texte a également enchanté des générations de tous âges.
