    Blah, blah, blah.

    This is one of the most borring books I've ever read. It starts off by Earnest Shackleton buying a boat and organizing a tripwith several shipmates across Antartica. The boat eventually sinks and the crew is stranded in Antartica to eventually be rescued. The book gives too much detailon the wrong things. The cook made supper at 4:15. The crew finished at 4:30. after supper the crew pull the gear a distance of 2 1/2 miles.The temprature dropped to 25 degrees. The entire book is like that. It doesn't get into the peoples emotions and thoughts of the situation as much as it should in my opinion. No one cares how cold it was or how far they moved. The same events happen day after day. Seals are killed for food. Shackleton is upset with the futile advances of the group. The pressure is building up on the ice. Its more like a descriptive book than a narrative. Christianity is also used as a clrutch, only when they are in trouble. The whole book is like a diary. Special to one person, Shackleton but to others its not important. I don't recommend this book for classroom study because the students will loose interest FAST. Robinson Crusoe and Lord of the Flies were a much better books.
