First Post/ Endurance 1
After reading the first part of Endurance and continuing onto part 2 I hope the book becomes a little more interesting. The characters however, especially Shackleton and Black Borrow, seem to add substance to the book and keep me interested. I hope to see how motivation begins to enter the premise of the book as we continue reading. I am also looking forward to seeing what types of people the crew turns out to be and what motivates each individual person (whether it be honor, financial success, or just love of adventure). Certainly Shackleton seems to be the driving force behind the crew, as he is captain, but I am also anxious to see who else steps up and tries to motivate the crew through what seems to be a story about an extremely difficult struggle ahead. The story though dull at the moment is obviously an excellent choice for this class. I am sure we are all about to learn and read an incredible story that depicts men from many different walks of life coming together under one leader for the pure thrill and heartache of motivation.
