    The definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of Into the Wild. Read by the author. Also, hear a Fresh Air interview with Krakauer conducted shortly after his ordeal.

    In the 4 years I have been enjoying audible books, I have never felt compelled to write a review until now. This is the most amazing story. Krakauer is modest but obviously heroic. He seems to truly regret his faults in the events while not overplaying his courage and stamina in saving several lives. Usually authors' narrations are not as good as the pros, but he does a great job. You can feel the emotion. For me it was like reading LOTR for the first time.
