I a bit of an exploration-disaster addict. This one is pretty horrifying. Imagine trying to fly over the north pole in a zeppelin/dirigible. Then something goes wrong, and you're carried away by the winds never to be seen again. It happened.

Loved it? Even tho I know the outcome from reading another book, I still couldn't put it down. I wont say anymore because of a 'spoiler' but I found it a true adventure tale.

Challenge: name three things cooler than exploration of unknown Arctic regions using a zeppelin.
