Reviews

great narrator, thank you


(4 stars)

As usual not an indigenous dude on the team? A hot air balloon over the north pole? Safe bet that thing is still up there!


(4.5 stars)

Great reading, great story, although it does get repetitive in places. Overall very engaging, but perhaps not as fast moving and well written as for example Roald Amundsen's writing.
