    The Climb is a true, gripping, and thought-provoking account of the worst disaster in the history of Mt. Everest: On May 10, 1996, two commercial expeditions headed by experienced leaders attempted to climb the highest mountain in the world, but things went terribly wrong...

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Climb to be better than the print version?

    I wouldn't know, as i have only listened to this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anatoli is a very interesting person, and undoubtedly the protagonist of an unheard of rescue above 8000 meters.


    Have you listened to any of Lloyd James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No i haven't.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In the highest mountain in the world, even the smallest of mistakes can cost lives.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a serious mountaineer, or just want a facts over fiction account of what happened on Everest in 1996, then this is a must read (listen).
