"Bound for Antarctica, where polar explorer Ernest Shackleton planned to cross on foot the last uncharted continent, the Endurance set sail from England in August 1914. In January 1915, after battling its way for six weeks through a thousand miles of pack ice and now only a day's sail short of its destination, the Endurance became locked in an island of ice. For ten months the ice-moored Endurance drifted northwest before it was finally crushed. But for Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men the ordeal had barely begun. It would end only after a near-miraculous journey by Shackleton and a skeleton crew through over 850 miles of the South Atlantic's heaviest seas to the closest outpost of civilization. This astonishing tale of survival by Shackleton and all twenty-seven of his men for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas, as Time magazine put it, "defined heroism." Alfred Lansing's brilliantly narrated book has long been acknowledged as the definitive account of the Endurance's fateful trip"--… (lisätietoja)

The strap line of this book is "The harrowing tale of British explorer Ernest Shackleton's 1914 attempt to reach the South Pole, one of the greatest adventure stories of the modern age." I think that sums it up perfectly. Before reading this I had heard of Shackleton but didn't really know much about him or his expeditions. This book is remarkably well research and as soon as I got into it I just couldn't put it down even though I already knew the outcome. If this had been written as a movie script people would say it is too extreme to be believable and that no one could surive what they survived. There is no denying that part of my rating has to come down to the story but I feel it would be dishonest for me to rate it any lower than 5/5. ( )

I don't quite have the words to express how much I enjoyed this account. Endurance. What courage and grit these men showed. An excellent account if you need inspiration for a difficult task. Just amazing. ( )

Lansing does a good job keeping the reader engaged in the slow trials of the crew without the pace feeling slow. He goes a little overboard on the character descriptions at the start, and the lens through which he interprets the behavior of the men is too innocent for me. For example, he writes about how a crew member raised spirits by playing banjo and performing shows, without mentioning that in all photos of this he is wearing black face. Despite this, it was a quick and engaging read, and the story of survival is incredible. ( )

This boils down to an existential book for me. Perfectly narrated. An amazing story of men stranded on the ice and seas of the Antarctic, and who somehow survived simply because there was no other choice. Privations galore. It's hard to imagine men this rugged and resourceful in today's world. ( )

I am fascinated by books concerning Antarctica, the North Pole, and Everest. This has been on my to-read list for ages. Finally, I got to read it as it was a book group pick.

I loved this book. I stayed up late to read it, read it on the bus, read it at lunch. Amazing adventure story. It's a harrowing yet hopeful tale about what we are capable of enduring in the face of adversity. Just when you think it can't get worse. . .it does.

Of course, I bowed out of attending the book group discussion due to the snowstorm and a cold front. Oh, the irony.

I got Endurance inspired. I wrote 3 poems:

Poem:

It was cold
The proud ship froze
It was cold
Trapped in the floes

It was dark
The ice our foe
It was dark
The winds did blow

It was cold
The ship was split
It was cold
On ice we sit

It was dark
We ate the seal
It was dark
The wounds won't heal

It was cold
We ate the dog
It was cold
Just ice and fog

It was dark
The frost, the snows
It was dark
We lost our toes

It was cold
The boats were launched
It was cold
The wounds were staunched

It was light
The boat returned
It was light
No more marooned

2. Limerick

There once was a ship named Endurance
In her sails we had full assurance
But one day she froze
Like our toes and our nose
That grandiose ship named Endurance

3. Haiku

The ice pack pressed in
The wooden vessel was crushed
Men watched from the floes ( )

The time for hesitation was past, and Shackleton swung himself over the side. Working furiously, he began to cut steps in the face of the cliff, descending slowly, a foot at a time. A bitter chill had come into the air, and the sun was nearly down. Gradually they were getting lower, but it was maddeningly slow progress. After thirty minutes, the ice-hard surface of the snow grew softer, indicating that the grade was not quite so steep. Shackleton stopped short. He seemed to realize all at once the futility of what he was doing. At the rate they were going it would take hours to make the descent. Furthermore, it was probably too late to turn back. He hacked out a small platform with the adz, then called to the others to come down. There was no need to explain the situation. Speaking rapidly, Shackleton said simply that they faced a clear-cut choice: If they stayed where they were, they would freeze-in an hour, maybe two, maybe more. They had to get lower-and with all possible haste. So he suggested they slide. Worsley and Crean were stunned-especially for such an insane solution to be coming from Shackleton. But he wasn’t joking…he wasn’t even smiling. He meant it-and they knew it. But what if they hit a rock, Crean wanted to know. Could they stay where they were, Shackleton replied, his voice rising. The slope, Worsley argued. What if it didn’t level off? What if there were another precipice? Shackleton’s patience was going. Again he demanded-could they stay where they were? Obviously they could not, and Worsley and Crean reluctantly were forced to admit it. Nor was there really any other way of getting down. And so the decision was made. Shackleton said they would slide as a unit, holding onto one another. They quickly sat down and untied the rope which held them together. Each of them coiled up his share to form a mat. Worsley locked his legs around Shackleton’s waist and put his arms around Shackleton’s neck. Crean did the same with Worsley. They looked like three tobogganers without a toboggan. Altogether it took a little more than a minute, and Shackleton did not permit any time for reflection. When they were ready, he kicked off. In the next instant their hearts stopped beating. They seemed to hang poised for a split second, then suddenly the wind was shrieking in their ears, and a white blur of snow tore past. Down…down…they screamed – not in terror necessarily, but simply because they couldn’t help it. It was squeezed out of them by the rapidly mounting pressure in their ears and against their chests. Faster and faster – down … down …down! Then they shot forward onto the level, and their speed began to slacken. A moment later they came to an abrupt halt in a snowbank. The three men picked themselves up. They were breathless and their hearts were beating wildly. But they found themselves laughing uncontrollably. What had been a terrifying prospect possibly a hundred seconds before had turned into a breath-taking triumph.
