Yes. Great storytelling, great narration, riveting.
The descriptions really put you there on the mountain with them.
He has a handle on several accents that don't come across as cheesy, they actually help the storytelling.
Definitely sad, but also inspiring.
The storyline is not original, yet still amazing to be reminded of the passion that some people have that will make them put themselves and others in life threatening situations because they are so driven. is it because they truly believe they are invisible or is it because of their desire to tempt fate and cheat nature?
The fact that people are willing to put themselves at risk to help others.
The book is just great.
Takes you by the hand to Mount Everest, grips you so hard you cannot stop!
I enjoyed it a lot and it is one of the best I hear I the last year.
Great and tragic story of adventure and terrible loss. This book will create in you wonder and excitement. The adventure though is only part of the story...the very real and humbling story of survival. The recording quality is below typical audible stories. The author and performance will leave you riveted and at the edge of you seat. A must read or listen too. Take notes to help keep tract of the various participants, it helps you understand the positions of the climbers and in many cases their tragic fates.
It's a genuinely fascinating story. I wasn't old enough to really be aware of the tragedy when it happened so it was all pretty new to me. Makes me excited to see the movie. Not quite on the level of The Martian or Unbroken but really good. I definitely listened to it at every chance.
As this is a true story and it's written from the point of view of Jon Krakauer, it's hard to fully know and understand the other characters. This makes it impossible to name a favorite character.
The entire story is great. I can't pick one specific scene.
If you're interested in what happened on Everest that year, this is a must read.
Yes. The narrator did an excellent job.
His pronunciation of names and occasional accent. Thought i was actually hearing John Krackauer at times.
