Publisher's Summary

On the anniversary of the day his best friend, Byrd, had a tragic accident on the mountain that had been the boys' paradise and escape, Wolf Truly reaches for the summit again with the intention of not coming home. But Wolf meets three women in the cable car on the way up from Palm Springs and finds himself agreeing to help them get to a mountain lake.

As the weather suddenly deteriorates, the group is stranded on a lethal ridge, and the lights of the city twinkle below, so close and yet so terrifyingly far away. Those who will survive the ordeal will do so through a mixture of bravery, determination, and self-revelation.

Great survival story. Great life story.

Would you listen to The Mountain Story again? Why?

Definitely. Great story.

What did you like best about this story?

This was simply a great book that totally delivered on all levels.
I have to admit I'm quick to find fault with most fiction - and non-fiction.
It's hard to find something that's original, not full of clichés or clunky moments, transports you to a different landscape, is genuinely moving and keeps you turning the pages from first page to last. (Or the audio version of that). Or leaves you thinking "was that it?" and is forgotten within hours.
But this book was all the good and none of the bad. A rare thing.
I do particularly love a good survival story so I am the target reader to start with, but this was a survival story with a heartbreaking life story attached. But with a happy - on a realistic scale of happy - ending. Which is the only kind of heartbreaking story I want to hear to be honest.

Which character – as performed by Corey Brill – was your favourite?

All characters were great.

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

Yes. Which I hate because I want a good book to last as long as possible, but it was hard to put this one down.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended.
And I only recommend around 1 in 10 books I read.
