it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read from April 05 to June 10, 2012

I read a fair bit of non-fiction. Sometimes it's just too dull or detailed to slog through. Most things are fairly interesting, but lose me a bit in the middle or go on a bit too long...but I still finish them, because the subject is interesting enough.

This book is not either of those. This book was a page-turner, start-to-finish. Even though you know from the beginning that not everyone will make it out, and that the journey is set up to be a failure from the first, Millard does a great job of keeping you intrigued and on the edge of your seat.

Only once in a great while do I enthusiastically endorse a non-fiction book to anyone (the last time was 3-4 years ago, with Born to Run). I endorse this book to anyone who reads!
