After reading Jon Krakauer's classic account of the 1996 Everest climbing season, I was hooked on all things Everest.
After watching both seasons of Everest: Beyond the Limit, I wanted a book that would explore the tragedies of the 2006 season and I found it in Dark Summit.
The book is well-written and evenhanded; it gives coverage to ExplorersWeb and Russell Brice's point of view.
Someone looking for a straightforward recounting of this tragic season should seriously consider this book.
The narration by David Drummond is spot-on perfect. Great voice, great timing and consistent accents give voice to all the major players in the book.
