Rating: 3 out of 5

An exploitation I knew nothing about. And one that had such an impact on how we travel today. And possibly why the ice cap is melting. It is obviously will researched - I guess being the son of the explorers would help with that. But I didn’t find it as engaging as other adventure tales. Some such tales have had me turning the pages even though I knew how they turned out. This one didn’t. and I didn’t know the outcome. I’d have enjoyed it more if it had been more story and character focused.
