    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.

    Marci says: "Great story, great detail"
    "Dan Simmons at his best!"

    What did you love best about The Abominable?

    The story, the narration, overall effect


    What other book might you compare The Abominable to and why?

    None. I never expected to love a book about mountaineering!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    They all worked to form a moving, cohesive, tightly told narrative.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted it to last because it is finite.


    Any additional comments?

    I have loved most of Dan Simmons' work. His Hyperion trilogy is among the best literature. It is unforgettable. With this latest book, Simmons has authored another unforgettable book. I have read and listened to so many books over the years. This one moved me so much I had to write a review!
