    In early May 2006, a young British climber named David Sharp lay dying near the top of Mount Everest while forty other climbers walked past him on their way to the summit. A week later, Lincoln Hall, a seasoned Australian climber, was left for dead near the same spot. Hall's death was reported around the world, but the next day he was found alive after spending the night on the upper mountain with no food and no shelter.

    Don Lance says: "Good summary of the 2006 season"
    "Best recounting of the 2006 Everest season"
    Overall

    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.
