    When Edmund Hillary first conquered Mt. Everest, Sherpa Tenzing Norgay was at his side. Indeed, for as long as Westerners have been climbing the Himalaya, Sherpas have been the unsung heroes in the background. In August 2008, when eleven climbers lost their lives on K2, the world’s most dangerous peak, two Sherpas survived. They had emerged from poverty and political turmoil to become two of the most skillful mountaineers on earth. Based on unprecedented access and interviews, Buried in the Sky reveals their astonishing story for the first time.

    danny lawrence says: "Tragic story on K2"
    "Well written and narrator better than you think."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Buried in the Sky the most enjoyable?

    In spite of the first couple of minutes sounding like a computerized reader, the narrator does a very good job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It seems to be well researched with a great deal of background on the attempts to climb K2.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite. There were several good descriptions of climbing difficulties.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No strong reaction, except that it was a very involving and easy to listen to book.


    Any additional comments?

    More than one reviewer has remarked about the narration sounding mechanical. Fortunately, that only lasts for the first minute or two of the recording. After the first couple of minutes, the narrator does a fine job, including pronunciations of difficult names and believable accents and voices.
