    1 thought on “The Ice-Cold Heaven”

    1. I'm obsessed with Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton and by extension, all of Antarctica. He is my #1 hero. Shackleton's Endurance expedition is my most favorite. I've read dozens of books about it. I can spout off endless facts at the drop of a hat. I really, really love it. I have an incurable case of the ice fever. So, having said all that, I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I didn't love the subject so much. Bonné took numerous liberties with the facts, and since I know them all, it ne [...]

    2. Diezgan garlaicīgs stāsts par neveiksmīgu ekspedīciju ledājos. Nevienmērīgs un vietām lēkājošs stāstījums, lai gan ne bez izdomas un talanta. Galvenais varonis īpaši neuzrunāja un nerosināja līdzpārdzīvot. Un ik pa brīdim pilnīgi neloģismi - komanda iestrēgusi ledos, pārtika tuvojas beigām, bet visi draudzīgi izmet ārā kasti ar žāvētiem augļiem, jo vīģes nevienam negaršojot Visi suņi un arī kuģa kaķis apēsti, ceļā dodas mazā glābšanas ekspedīcija - [...]

    3. EnduranceThis exciting and largely factual novel tells the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914–16. I read about it in a list of German books in translation recommended by the Frankfurt Book Fair. Unlike many others in the list, however, it is quite straightforward rather than "literary" in tone. Mirko Bonné's language, at least in Alexander Starritt's clear translation, is always vivid, but makes no attempt to be poetic or picturesque. His chronological narrati [...]

    4. The history books about Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition about are pretty dry. This fictionalization by Mirko Bonne puts faces and personalities on the voyage. He played a bit lose with the facts, but hey, it is fiction. It was enjoyable even though I knew what was going to happen. The Ice-Cold Heaven allows one to imagine a more human side to polar exploration.I have previously Read one non-fiction book about Shackleton’s disastrous Antarctic voyage. This trip was a disaster but heroic in [...]

    5. An enjoyable story, with interesting information about the final Ernest Shackleton trip to the Antarctic, but unfortunately there was a complete lack of tension or drama, which should have been central to historical fiction. Several years ago I read Peter Fitzsimon's "Mawson and the Icemen of the heroic age", which was a factual account of various Antarctic explorations, including Shackletons, and I found the level of tension and engagement in the way in which he related the truth was much more [...]

    6. A nice fictionalized version of Shackleton's expedition. Emphasis on the fictionalized. I'm guessing the Germans don't really learn much about Shackleton? Probably not. Either way, if you're looking for a historically accurate story of Perce Blackborow (I still can't figure out why Bonne changed the name to Merce. I don't think Perce means anything dirty in German. Maybe it's slang for something that I can't find in my dictionaries? Curse my useless German degree) read "Shackleton's Stowaway" by [...]

    7. This is a fictionalized account of Sir Edward Shackleton's failed attempt to cross the Antarctica on land. The young man who narrates the story, Merce Blackboro, is based on the character of Perce Blackborrow, who was a member of Shackleton's crew. Bonne does a great job of describing the events that occurred, with some poetic license, of course. I love stories about Shackleton and exploration and survival in general, so I found this to be a great read.

    8. I love reading books about this kind of topic because it scares me. I just can't imagine what it would be like to be caught in ice during a time that gives no option of rescue. It was a bit long winded, which is why I took off some stars, but still a good read.

    9. This was one of those "grab it on the way out of the library" books. I didn't expect to enjoy it so much. It's a fictional account of the Shackelton expedition from the standpoint of a (very real) stowaway. Beautifully written and very engaging.

    10. This work is a translation from German. However, the translator is not credited with the book details nor is this book found under the name of the translator. Please add the name Alexander Starritt.I need to read the book again to provide a balanced review.

    11. While this fictionalized account of a stowaway on Ernest Shackelton's trip with the ENDURANCE is interesting, it is not as interesting as the real account that Ernest Shackelton wrote about this voyage and their struggle for survival. The book is still in print and very worth reading.

    12. I found this to be a good read, though very slow moving. adventure and survival in this fictional telling of Shackleton's attempt to cross the Antarctic

    13. A wonderful journey into the ice of Antartica - through the eyes of a 17 year-old boy becoming a man. One of these journeys worth reading.

    14. Decent story though it was fairly slow moving. Definitely not a top pick for me but worth the read.
