Splitting my spare time between rereading Beowulf and The Gulag Archipelago.
Shackleton's Captain tells the story of the rescue of his men.
Currently reading ... "Rivers of London" by Ben Aaronovitch
But if you're looking for literature of a nautical nature, I recommend
The 'Horatio Hornblower' series by C.S. Forester
'Sink the Bismark', also by C.S. Forester
'Master and Commander' by Patrick O'Brien
I'm reading it now.
I notice the use of language between Dana and Shackleton is much more readable to me.
The original or the modern english translation?
I don't know, but the language is kind of hard to follow at times. Sorry for the delay, I didn't see you had posted.
I'm re-reading an ancient copy of Cosmos by Carl Sagan an uncle gave me like 20 years ago. Glad I saved it, it is outdated but still a good read. Puts things into perspective. I will probably keep it and give it a read again when I'm 60 lol.
