  • “…every photograph reveals and conceals. And one thing I have learned, even with photographs, is that people still see only what they believe”Endurance is the first novel by Australian lawyer, arbitrator and author, Tim Griffiths. James Francis "Frank" Hurley was an Australian photographer and adventurer. He participated in a number of expeditions to Antarctica and served as an official photographer with Australian forces during both world wars. Griffiths recounts, in the first person, the [...]


  • I took this book to read while I holidayed in Malaysia, It took me a couple of weeks to finish the book but I needed to finish it.Being the first book by this author I can hardly wait to see if he will write another.You could easily feel you were standing next to the Characters in this book and feel all their torments and Trials.Well worth the time it took for me to read.


  • Knowing of Frank Hurley, Ernest Shackleton and Douglas Mawson made this an historical novel that appealed to me. It took me from a frozen land to the battlefields of World War 1 and made me feel like I was there with Frank witnessing these events unfold.


  • I loved being taken back in time to follow the amazing adventure of a remarkable man Frank Hurley from boyhood. The author Tim Griffiths was very good at encapsulating the ambience of each time period and setting as we journey with Frank through this life. I feel this has been achieved by the author’s extensive knowledge of these areas and ability to translate them into memorable images us readers can visualise easily. I recommend this novel to Australian school students and teachers as I feel [...]


  • I received a copy of this book from .I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a fascinating story and plenty of research has obviously been done. For me, the downside was the story of a photographer, but no accompanying photographs. With those it would easily rate another star. A map would have been a nice addition too, for easier visualization of the journey. Well worth the read though.


  • A well researched book, that is completely believable in being from Frank Hurley's viewpoint. Living in Hobart, the name Frank Hurley was quite familiar to me, but this book revealed so much more of his life and character. Very detailed, but easy to read in long stretches. Well worth reading.I received this book for free through First Reads. This has not influenced my review.



  • A simply written novel based on the life of Australian photographer, Frank Hurley, his adventures with Antarctic explorers and well-known players on the battlefields of World War I. Middle School students may find this narrative a good introduction to the period. I was expecting the life of a photographer to show a more artistic "bent" , but came to the conclusion that the restrained expression reflected a gentlemanly humility and courage of the period.


  • Written from the perspective of Frank Hurley, photographer to Shackelton's disastrous Antarctic expedition, this is a worthy, if workmanlike, addition to the many volumes on the subject. Hurley comes across and a decent Aussie battler; from humble origins, modest, honest, resourceful and stoic, and without any of the self-importance or arrogance of his British counterparts.


  • I received this book as a first reads prize and I couldn't put it down. An absolutely fascinating insight into a piece of history and the life of a talented yet solitary soul. Tim Griffiths did a brilliant job protraying Frank Hurley, in fact it was difficult at times to remember it wasn't him writing the story. I can't wait to read more of his work.


  • I love a book that is was it says "A novel of ice, war and adventure". The experience and tenacity of the men who travelled to Antarctica in the times of Mawson and Shackleton are truly remarkable. The conditions to me are unbearable, but the experience amazing. Then to juxtapose this to life of men in WW1 and their horrendous experience makes this a great read.


  • This book is written like a novel but is really an auto-biography of Frank Hurley, photographer and adventurer. It covers mainly his expeditions with Mawson and Shackleton, and his time as a WW1 photographer. Fascinating reading, especially the Antarctic expeditions.


  • An interesting, thoroughly researched and well written novel about the life of well known Australian Antarctic photographer, Frank Hurley.
