An enjoyable read. I thought it would be like reading about Ernest Shackleton but it was more like watching The Vanishing (Dutch version -- except not as horrifying). It's a book about obsession.

Lisa I heard about this book on NPR--I can't wait to hear what you think of it. It sounded really interesting.

message 2: by Jen (new) - rated it 3 stars

Jen I'm excited to read it -- but I'm hold number 76 for 5 copies at the library, so it's going to be awhile.

Lisa I guess its popular! You should read "Three Cups of Tea" while you're waiting. Its really great.

message 4: by Barbara (new)

Barbara I have requested it from the library - should be good. Mom
