The first half of Ernest Shackleton's Endurance expedition is presented as the journal of the ship's cat. Cute, but essentially a one-note joke with a bittersweet punchline.

Probably a traumatic read for animal lovers.

"My watch today was very strenuous, it being extremely difficult to concentrate on all the kinds of movements, ripples, running water, bubbles, froth, foam, etc., let alone look out for penguins that might be following in our wake. Continued to make nautical observations until teatime."
