This book hooked me in. It’s an incredibly interesting tale about Mt. Everest climbers. Emotionally powerful and the descriptions of the journey are so detailed and told so well, I felt as though I was there. Great adventure book. Made me interested in reading other mountain climbing books, but this remains my favorite one. A true masterpiece and real life thriller. Some helpful history background as well.
This is a must read!
Read it post-break up, and like Greg`s other book (He`s Just not that into you) a weight was lifted and I soon I was on the road to recovery ;o) I`ve recommended it to many a friend since then.
I think that I just generally have difficulty enjoying 19th-century translations. I can tell that there is some beautiful stuff going on in here, but for me it is overshadowed by the flowery language of an English gentleman. The meter and rhyme feels too forced and artificial. However, I would like to try another translation to get a better feel for the content.
