The explorers' diary excerpts read quite boring as they are mostly about wind, snow, temperature, accident, ration, food etc...I think what would attract regular readers more are human interactions: the friendship, the competition, the jealousy, intrigues, etc, etc, but the diaries are more like matter-of-fact reports on physical conditions of the Antarctica and the explorations. What happened in their hearts facing such extreme challenges; what happened between them? what happened between them and the animals there? If they put more such contents there, should be a more attractive read...
