Non-fiction: Robert B. Yonaitis: Going to Antarctica (2012)
Going to Antarctica is a travel story self-published on the Kindle. The American writer Robert B. Yonaitis goes on a cruise off the Antarctic coast, and in one sense the book is banal: we learn what happens every day of the trip, from its start in Buenos Aires to events aboard the cruise ship.
However, as a travel book, its everyday nature and lack of pretension is also one of Going to Antarctica’s assets. If you’re planning to go on one of the Antarctic cruises yourself and wonder how it might be, the book offers a concrete depiction of the experience on a very practical basis. You’ll have a comprehensive idea of what to expect and how to prepare.
