This was a wonderful book, full of gems! The narrator was so difficult to listen to. Unlike other readers, I never got used to his "tone." The story was wonderful though and was worth suffering through the narrator.
I really enjoyed this listen. Although I have no interest in climbing, the passion that this man exudes is contagious. It's an adventure, a love story and a very easy listen. It was a bit long, and I wonder if the abridged version would have been just as good...Enjoy!
Definitely worth the listen. Very gripping and sensitive...The kind of book that makes you think, actually makes you WANT to think...
The story gets you from the first word...as bizzare as the story is, the most bizzare thing about it is that it's a memoir, a true story! It gives new meaning to "you can't make this stuff up!" I loved everything about it. I would highly reccomend it.
You won't be dissapointed!
I found the book a tad bit difficult to follow, but after the first half hour, I was hooked. Beautiful story with many twists and turns in an enchanting setting. And bonus: The narrator was a pleasure to listen to!
Far more in-depth than any movie could portray. I was rivetted by the emotions and portrayals of these classic characters. The reading is compelling. I would highly reccomend.
