Don't judge this book by it's cover
on 1 October 2001
The cover of this book gives a completely false impression and is obviously aimed at the "buy it for a holiday read" market. In fact the story works on many different levels. It is a tale of two loves ... life and the mountains. OK, there are a few cliches within but the plot twists and turns unexpectedly. It doesn't even end when you think that it should but the extra 60 pages tie up all the loose ends in a completely satisfying manner. It's a story of loves lost and found, an adventure that is terrifyingly real and a search for reasons to live. All of the three main characters are multi-layered and you can't help caring about what happens to them. This book will not disappoint you.
