Summary

These stories exude suffering at its worst - from the desperate cannibalism of the Donner Party to the brutal starvation and bitter cold endured by Ernest Shackleton's team. Tales of such suffering may be distressing to their listeners, but at the same time, they engage us, offering glimpses of our most fundamental needs. The accounts in this audiobook exist because people endured their miserable circumstances - they survived. Their stories remind us that while suffering is part of life, so is deliverance.

Excellent Stories

Would you listen to Survive again? Why?

Yes. These are very dynamic stories that have been abbreviated and really "cut to the chase" of the best parts!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Survive?

The Donner party author's father was found alive.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Narrator had an excellent ability to express proper emotion with each story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was very "moved" by the end of the journey for the survivors of the Chilean rugby team after their lengthy ordeal with survival and cannibalism in the Andes Mountains.

Any additional comments?

I've read nearly all of the more detailed and lengthy versions, but I also highly recommend listening to these short stories.

Review

This work, mainly composed of B-list, pseudo-historical stories by B-list authors (Melville, of course, excluded) is slow, mismatched and tedious. The stories are maybe the equivalent of bed stories, though there slowness may cause the reader before the child to fall asleep.
