A truly amazing yet tragic story...every time you think things are as bad as they can get for the people involved, they get worse. If you've ever dreamed of climbing Mt. Everest, read this...you may change your mind.
Krakaurer's writing transports you along at light speed, but I have to admit after reading this all I wanted to do was make a plan to climb the mountain. Any recommendations for authors similar to Krakauer ?
