if you love bio's and memoir's then this is one for you. I didn't know that much about her before I started listening to this book and was afraid it was going to be a lot of I'm a pretty girl my life is so hard feel bad for me, but it wasn't at all. She was very honest and open about her whole life and has really overcome quite a lot. She became a human and I suggest this book to anyone who think they may know about her and her life.
just like I think about Rob Lowe this was a fun easy listen. Not too deep, but not all fluff it really made me much more interested in him than I was when I started. Made me a fan.
Too often, books written based on a true story include too much hyperbole in turning the main character into a hero that did nothing wrong. This story is raw, and honest, and believable, and really well told.
The best part about this story is that it's true. No really, it's true. As you join Simpson in this tale, you'll find yourself saying "no way," but wow, it really happened.
The end of this story wrapped it up so well for me. I won't spoil anything in case you don't already know what happens, but I'll say, that any questions I had were answered by the end.
Whether you are a skier, a hiker, a mountaineer, or just love a great story about human strength and endurance, you'll love this story.
