This is the account of the 2010 San Jose mine rescue in Chile, after one of the longest human entrapments in history. With his coveted "rescue pass," the author was permitted access far past the police perimeter. It would be seventeen long days before the miners were discovered alive and the world press descended. It would be another fifty-two days before the miners were all successfully rescued. For eight weeks, the author conducted interviews with families, rescue workers, the mine psychologist, drill operators, scientists, and the architects of the rescue operation. He reported from an improvised office on the mountainside that was the nerve center of the rescue operation, in a makeshift container. Far below, families and loved ones lived in a cluster of tents known as Camp Hope. While the men were still underground, the author interviewed them via a crude telephone; he helped send vital supplies to them via the "paloma" (pigeon). And when the first miners were rescued on October 13, he had the first media contact with the recently freed men in a series of interviews from inside the field hospital. The book togglesbetween the dramatic chaos belowground as the men realized that their escape routes were blocked and that their shelter held only enough rations for ten men to survive seventy-two hours; and the desperate rescue efforts aboveground, the massive campaign from the top level of the Chilean government to enlist and unite brilliant minds from around the world in the San Jose rescue effort. In never before revealed detail, the author tells a story of the improbable survival of the miners, trapped some 2,200 feet underground for sixty-nine days. He also chronicles what had to go right, an impossibly long list, to rescue them all alive. The death-defying rescue demanded endurance, ingenuity, and most of all, unified fronts above and below ground. To be sure, none of this came easily. Based on more than 110 interviews with the miners, their families, and the rescue team, this account combines an eye for detail and dialogue with the remarkable human interest story of these miners struggling to survive in a savage environment.… (mais)

I will only leave a short review, but I will say this. This is an exceptionally well researched, well written, heart felt book on the Chilean Miners rescue. Detailed, thought provoking and informative. This is a very easy to read fiction book and I literally couldn't put it down. I would highly recommend this one as a good news story that we often need in these sometimes depressing times we live in. ( )

I listened to the audiobook version, and it's fun with the accents. This starts out promising, as a tale of survival. But since it's a foregone conclusion, and the reader is told what will happen and how it will end, a lot of suspense was sapped out of it. It's a true story, but the author assumes that every reader will know that, or picked it up for that reason. If it was told with more suspense, it might be more likely to stand the test of time.

After the rescue, there was too much wrap-up, much of it falling on the mundane side of things, at least for me. I stopped reading at about 96% of the way through. ( )

Senza nulla togliere alla drammaticità degli eventi narrati, questo libro mi ha lasciato un po' perplessa. Franklin sembra indeciso se fare il freddo cronista o lasciarsi andare a romanzare certi eventi. Ne risulta uno stile che saltella tra i due opposti, e che non mi è piaciuto. Inoltre in più punti sembra che butti là degli spunti da approfondire più avanti, senza poi farlo. Mi ha lasciato se non altro il desiderio di leggere altro sull'argomento. ( )

I picked this more or less at random from the audio books on offer from the library as I was in a hurry to get a new title to listen to on the bus.
I remembered the rescue of the minors in 2010 - most people who heard about it will never forget. So it wasn't a case of wanting to know what happened. Like films about the Titanic: "Spoiler alert - the ship sinks!" - I knew how this story ended. But I enjoy biographies and real life stories, so I thought it was worth a go.
It was a fascinating account and I'm really glad I checked it out.
Telling a friend about it, I noticed that a film is being made - not really a surprise - with Antonio Banderas starring. I'll probably watch. ( )

Incredibly well written, this is truly just as the title indicates, a miraculous true story of 33 men trapped 2,300 feet below in the bowels of a copper and gold mine in a remote area in Chile. With over time, working in brutal conditions, a good month could net $2,000 of pay, and thus the men put life and limb in danger every second, hour and day.

Known for the many earthquakes and the terrible track record of poor safety in this mine, every time they entered, the men knew they were beating incredible odds to see the light of day.

Though in the case of this disaster, there never was a survival for that period of time under these extreme conditions.

This is a true testimony of the will of survival and a joyous celebration of all those who worked so very hard, despite the incredible odds, to develop a rescue operation.

Barely surviving for 17 dark days, with only one day food supply left, the miners had little hope of discovery. When they were discovered, even the brave people above who were trying to help, were unsure how to rely to the miners that they may be trapped for four more months.

Many miracles occurred in order to get the men to the top, and even then after 69 long days in a small confined space, the men listened as yet another earthquake shook the mountain until the rocks thundered and cried.

Praying the escape route would not be blocked, the men knew ever fiber of their being was tested.

Kissing the ground, crying and thanking God, after 69 days, 33 men were rescued by slowly being wrenched up through a drilled hole wide enough to contain a small, tiny capsule called "the Phoenix."

Highly Recommended!!! ( )
