For someone like me who loves tales of early polar exploration and adventure, it's a 'must read.' It's about 700 pages of Nansen's day-by-day diary of three years drifing near the North Pole. Many probably would find it incredibly boring. If survival among the polar bears, walrus' and -40F ice turn you on. . .it's a wonderful fireside read for you!
But the fact that this is a true story of Nansen's incredible Arctic expedition keeps you going. No one could dream up this adventure.
Also, the realistic portrayal of life on the Arctic ice let's you experience an environment few will ever get to visit in real life.
A very long and arduous read, only for seasoned adventure readers. But if you take on the challenge, you will be well rewarded.

Amazing journey and experience. Extremely tedious narrative. Prepare to skim, but worth the effort.Published 13 months ago by C. Barber
