    "Booring,"

    I expected a collection of real climbing stories.. instead what I listened to was a collection of stories ranging from booring to absolutely booring. The stories in this audiobook are slow, flaccid tales not of mountaineering, but of fluff and bloat. Be warned, the description of the book is completely innacurate. This is not for someone looking for extreme stories and accounts from rock, snow and ice, but for someone interested in fiction and weak narratives loosly pertaining to climbing. (Example, one story is a finctional tale of a climber taking his mother to the top of a trecherous climb while wrapped and stowed in a sort of sleeping bag...) Just my 2 cents... if you buy it, I do hope you enjoy it.

    "Fact or Fiction"

    This was entertaining enough, but for those of us who enjoy reading true mountaineering stories, it was a bit disappointing. The best stories seemed to be fiction, while most of the true accounts were boring essays on why climbers continue on despite the risks.

    "Interesting, but eclectic..."

    This is a well put-together compilation of various shorter pieces. Like any such "eclectic" mix though, you will no doubt find some of the sections more interesting than others.
