This book turned out to be a mixture of true and fictional accounts of survival by a variety of writers. I found it hard to switch gears (was someone's life really in peril, or was I reading a fictional account?) and the quality of the stories was less than transporting (I do love me my escapism, kids!)

Some of these were excerpts from books: always difficult to truly plunge into, since you know you're missing 9/10ths of the work.

I recently read another book, Adrenaline 2001, which was quite similar to this title, but only contained true accounts. I think my expectations for that title were definitely better formed and fulfilled.
