I really liked this as an audiobook. Dr. Nielsen - Jerri - reads her own book and does a fine job with it. Of course it kinda gives away the punch line - she does live!

I loved the descriptions of life at the South Pole station, and the cancer storyline was compelling. Sadly, the version I received was badly scratched, and at most key points, so it will be retired from swapping. I hope other versions are out there for other members to enjoy. It was worth the time spent listening.

This audio book was fabulous. What a story! To hear the author/victim/hero read her own compelling story about battling breast cancer in such a remote locale kept me actually dreading the end of my morning commute. I never knew much about the Pole but after listening to this riveting biography, I feel as if I've been there. Highly recommended.
