Great book, well told story.
I liked the fact that it is a true story.
This book definitely had it's high points as well as other points that drag along for much too long. What I found most interesting about this book is the maturity level of the author at such a young age. Some of the things he did are just amazing for any human being, much less a 16 year old boy. I would not recommend this book if it is your first mountaineering or high altitude climbing book. If you have already read other books on this subject and are looking for more (like me) to feed your new addiction to climbing books, then download it now.
I purchased this book thinking it would just be a "filler" book until I had time to really look at some reviews. When the beginning began "audible kids" I thought, "Great, what did I buy here?", but I have to say this is one of the best books I've ever listened to or read. So well written and the reader was great. An extremely inspiring book. I highly recommend it.
