    The year is 1924 and the race to summit the world's highest mountain has been brought to a terrified pause by the shocking disappearance of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine, high on the shoulder of Mt. Everest. By the following year, three climbers - a British poet and veteran of the Great War, a young French Chamonix guide, and an idealistic young American - find a way to take their shot at the top.

    What made the experience of listening to The Abominable the most enjoyable?

    The story itself was wonderful and was a nice blend of history, imagery, and inventiveness on the authors part!


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

    I believe the narrator did a great job at distinguishing each character and giving them life. Wonderful job with languages and accents. i wonder if the main character, Jake, was intended to be such a drone by the author or if the narrator took it upon himself to portray him as such; regardless, he was a hard main character to like/root for


    Any additional comments?

    overall it was a wonderful story! though i did at times find myself listening to the book just to get through it, some parts i would just half pay attention to due to details or repetitive scenes/actions, and felt like it could've been shortened with the same results.
