Matthew Brenher lends a formal British voice to this descriptive story of the men who tried to conquer the Antarctic. He never crafts an accent for any of the characters, which seems right for the subject matter. The men always seem bent on maintaining as much civility as possible even in the worst of times, and Brenher’s narration matches that professionalism. In graphic detail, based on diary accounts, the author describes the arduous journeys—from the specific meals they ate to their own mental and physical well-being. The account is not for the faint of heart; conditions for the dogs, especially, were brutal. But Brenher keeps a steady voice as he takes the listener on the daunting expeditions.
