did not like it
bookshelves: gave-it-up

My interest and knowledge of geology was not enough to carry me. Without pictures I couldn't visualize.

Randy Sorry you didn't like it... I guess it's a geek thing, or a genetic thing ;-) I have numerous ancestors and uncles who are in geology or related fields...

Hope you checked it out of the library instead of buying it!

I have lent "Endurance" to my most inveterate reading colleague, the fellow who turned me on to Kurlansky among others... We all spend lots of time in airplanes, and love books one can read in 6 hours or less. Anyhow, thanks for that suggestion; sorry mine was not as good as yours ;-(


Kathy It was library, no worries. Books are like art....everyone sees, likes and appreciates different things. Celebrate the differences! Cheers my friend.
