I found Part One to be interesting although it was a little hard to read at times. However, Part Two was much easier to read, although I found it to be a little sad. It started off with the men only being able to bring certain items with them because anything extra weighed against their chance of survival. In this situation, it makes sense to leave behind personal value items, but I imagined it was hard on the men, to leave behind their last pieces of home. I also found it sad when they had to kill the animals that were slowing them down, or when they had to kill seals for food. I understand their motivation to not die of starvation was very high, and anyone would do what it takes to survive in a situation like this, but I felt sad when reading in detail how they had to kill the animals. The men are very motivated in everything they do, which you see in each chapter. I wonder if their motivation will fall soon, or if they will try to keep it going strong.
