"...one of the grandest and most incredible adventure stories I have ever read...infallibly exciting elements of mountain climbing, daring escapes, life in secret, forbidden Tibet, and encounters with extraordinary people." (The New York Times Book Review)
I'm glad I read it because it was thoughtful and the underlying story is interesting, yet it was a little slow
I felt the author rushed through some of the most intense parts of the story. I would have enjoyed hearing more about the struggle of getting to Tibet rather than having him glaze over it.
