Everest 1953: The Epic Story of the First Ascent
Everest 1953: The Epic Story of the First Ascent
Price: 5.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really excellent and well researched book,
I read many books on Everest but I found this book not only covered the climb, but also what happened to everyone afterwards and how they all handled the fame that it brought
.What really impressed me though, was that It was not just Hillary and Tensing that summited but the whole team,
The leadership of John Hunt made sure of that, The summit was not just about two men.
I also thought he had researched the relationships and personalities very well without being over dramatic,, He just wrote and told it as it was.
Can truly recommend this book to any armchair mountaineer, Shelagh

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Long Winded,, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadly Intent (Kindle Edition)
I am a huge fan of Lynda La Plante but I found it went on to long,,
Started really well, But then I lost track of all the bodies that kept turning up,
Found it hard to work out who they all were,
I love the character of DS, Anna Travis, But for me this book was very complicated,,
Quite glad when I got to the end
Dissapointed, as I was so looking forward to reading it,,,
Shelagh,

3.0 out of 5 stars Unsure,,, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is quite a hard book to review,,
I found the title very misleading , As actually Mr, Radcliff was not in the climbing party that suffered such a terrible disaster,,
I also felt their was far to much about himself and not really anything we had not read before,,
To be fair he did make huge efforts to find out if the weather forcast for that day had been made known to any guide leaders,,, but ...I also wondered what was behind it,,,,
I really felt as if it was more about the mistakes and integrity of two very highly skilled and very professional guides,,
So in my opinion not nearly as good as " In To Thin Air " and very long winded,
Truly not sure how I felt about the book, Shelagh

Another fantastic read from the " Footsteps on the Mountain travel diaries"

Mark is an excellent writer of the magnificent and beautiful mountain's he climbs, His attitude to climbing is extraordinary,
Always the professional, but he tells his story with humility and pride at his achievement's, And their have been many,
Always great photo's and always well researched, and I love hearing about life in Base Camp,
Just another brilliant book, Can highly recommend,
Shelagh,

Another first class read from Mark Horrell.
He is such a highly skilled mountainer and yet he tells his story with humour and excitment, , I always feel I an walking along side him as he puts such emphasize on his discriptions, and extraordinary experience's,
He always, always leaves you wanting more,
Brilliant,

As usual another beautiful jigsaw with lots of colour and lots of interesting features to do,
My Father just loves them as he has bad eye-sight and these are perfect for him,
The quality is first class and I would not buy a jigsaw anywhere else,
Fast delivery, and lots to choose from,
Excellent,
