I don't think this book would make a movie.
The audio was very good. The book has many details that I think would be worth reading, but I learned a lot from this oral presentation. I think Karen Armstrong is a great historian, a great writer and great thinker. I've read some of her books and I think they open many doors to important knowledge that all human beings should have in order to have a better understanding of the meaning of religion and God that we are in urgency to posses to reevaluate our realtionship as human beings. I very much recomend this and all of Armstrong's books.
Humanity against nature.
Leaving behind the almost dead because of the incapacity to rescue them.
It made me think profoundly about human life.
Although human beings are a part of nature we are a very delicate and vulnerable part of it. Krakauer makes us realize how strong and weak our bodies are, how small the atmospheric layer in which we can live and breath is. We are not as powerful as we believe we are. How far should we push the limits? A fascinating true story.
