Endurance Part 2
Finally!..This book picks up some speed...Shackleton hardly sleeps, he is still extremely motivated and a bit neurotic when it comes to control and order. He seems to use up all he has left mentally, physically and emotionally but still has the strength to carry on and be the driving force of motivation on this expedition. What amazes me the most is that the crew is all the same way when it comes to motivation and determination. The thoughts that must be running through their minds but yet they still are almost, serene like, as I read into it. Even as we get to the end of part 2 and the floes were heavy with water and they literally were trapped , Shackleton ends the night with an optimistic and what I feel was upbeat feeling about the near future.
