Anmeldelser

«Gloriously written . . . Written with the verve of a thriller, Bound's narrative deftly weaves together his voyages and Shackleton's . . . Bound is blessed with a poet's ear for richly evocative language»

<i>Times Literary Supplement</i>

«The juxtaposition of the original Shackleton expedition with the quest to find the wreck of the Endurance is utterly compelling»

Professor Alice Roberts, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestseller author of <i>Ancestors </i>and TV Presenter

«Utterly spellbinding and a rollercoaster of a story. This gripping tale of international collaboration at its best oozes the steely resolve of a modern explorer and is a massive accolade to all involved in bringing the Endurance back into our lives»

Pippa Wordie, granddaughter of James Wordie, the geologist and chief scientist on the <i>Endurance</

«An enthralling tale of an extraordinary venture which brings Shackleton’s epic story bang up to the present day»

Camilla Nichol, Chief Executive, UK Antarctic Heritage Trust

«Bound's passion . . . for the most unexplored geography on Earth is evident on every page. His writing blends the required scientific explanations with what touches on poetry . . . Captivating»

Daily Mail

«Mensun Bound tells [his] story with passion and flair . . . Evocative»

Washington Post

«An acclaimed book»

<i>Observer</i>

«Remarkable . . . Bound’s account has a bittersweet intensity»

<i>The Australian</i>

«As thrilling as any tale from the heroic age of exploration . . . Bound’s account is a triumph. The storytelling is piano-wire taut, the writing saturated with polar moodiness»

Sunday Times

«Bound has a natural flair for storytelling and his narrative cracks along with the pace of a well-crafted thriller . . . Captivating and engrossing»

<i>Mail on Sunday</i>

«The story of Shackleton’s Endurance is one of the most extraordinary in the history of exploration. This is more than just an astonishing sequel. It is a tale just as powerful, and one which redefines the meaning of impossible»

Sir Michael Palin
