Great adventure but hard to feel the author wasn't bias to one explorer over the other. Almost seems to worship Amundsen and feel disgust to Scott. For instance when Scott gets good weather its the only reason he could go on, when Amundsen gets good weather its the gods smiling upon him. By the end of the book the bias makes sense, however I still feel I need to read another book on the sane event to get a critical analysis. The author may have been right but his obvious bias brings me to question this. Also could have done with a more detailed longer book.

Better than I expected, a look under the hood

Fantastic account of contemporary Russia that touches on a great many aspects of modern Russia that ate stitched together to give a mosaic of life under Putin. I'd read it after having read The Oligarchs which Gabe me a good base to understand the backdrop of the book. Loved the Authors sense of humour

A side of ww2 I'd never seen before

Rather fascinating story, went a bit deep into the lives of all these brits for me but this results in some great anecdotes and the high level story is remarkable

Impressive that it can go on for 20 hours

well written and keeps pretty interesting considering the subject matter, a lot less dramatic than The Hot Zone

Actually pretty funny but feels a bit too white

Titanicus the flip flop wearing barbarian who's not very bright. Amature writing but made me laugh (because funny story with some good jokes) . couldn't shake the feeling that the author was very white and very American.

I'd give it to my kids to read

I read this book as I was looming to find a history of the Yeltsin years on Audible (hint hint audible). The book provides a facinating look at Russia from the fall of communism to the arrival of Putin from am economic and key-person perspective.
