Endurance post 2

After reading section one of Endurance I really didn't know if I was going to be interested in reading about the rest of the book.However, once I read the second section my mind changed. This section you see a lot of the true colors come out of the men especially Shackleton. I thought it was ironic that just last class we were talking about the way food can alter your mind when you are hungry. When i was reading chapter 2 it said something about the only thing they could really think about was food, they were even talking about eating blubber. I can't even imagine being stuck on a boat with others relying on blubber of animals  so I don't starve. The thought of this makes me cringe, and I think all of these men are definitely brave for going on this journey!

  1. I agree with you completely. The second section was much more interesting and I could not imagine being hungry enough to seriously consider eating whale blubber!
