This review is only for the reader, not the book. The narrator's method of reading is absolutely unbearable! she upspeaks throughout all of her readings. It is very hard to hear the book through this. What a shame!

Well read by Tricia and a very chilling tale of suffering and horrible endings to many men and women over many years of exploring. Thanks Librivox and Tricia for a great well done job!
