it was amazing

A highly compelling and fascinating narrative, focussed on the Antarctic and Arctic voyages of the British explorer ship Erebus (and her sister ship Terror). Michael Palin successfully describes not just the ship’s journeys, but the ambitions and disappointments of those who lead her. I like the way Palin also dovetails his own travel experiences but in an unobtrusive way, so that his personal commentary doesn’t detract from the comprehensive research that forms the backbone of the book. A really excellent read.
