The book was enjoyable during the chapters focused on S. A. Andrée and his aeronautic colleagues who journeyed with him. However, much of the book has chapters focused on other arctic expeditions. These other chapters are intriguing at times, but usually dull. For example, in one chapter there is roughly three pages dedicated to descriptions of ice. I understood the point Wilkinson was trying the make--explorers stranded in the arctic ice had considerable amount of time to observe it, however it was a tad unnecessary. I felt like much of the book contain "filler" chapters to buffer the length of the book rather than providing valuable substance to S. A. Andrée's story.
