This review is from: A Walk In The Park (Kindle Edition)
This book is essential reading whether you are considering climbing Kilimanjaro or if you've already signed up to go and are now wondering what on earth you have let yourself in for. It gives a great insight into how a climb is run and how it unfolds - the easy bits, the hard bits, the toilets, the organisation of the climb, the feats of the porters who seem to carry everything but the kitchen sink up mountain, the toilets, and the traps that await the unwary tourist. An honest and well balanced mix of fact, trivia, emotion and humour.

Even if you have no plans to climb a mountain but wonder what would drive an otherwise normal couple to spend a week of their life doing so, then at the very least this is a very enjoyable and interesting read.

Did I mention the toilets?

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a Walk in the Park, 7 Feb. 2012
This review is from: A Walk In The Park (Kindle Edition)
I am seriously considering the Kilimanjaro Trek this year (2012) and started my research with this book.
I could not have started with a better guide.

The book is simply and humorously written with just the right amount of detail and fact.
I zipped through it in three sessions and at times felt like I was reading a Nick Hornby novel.
Jonathan seems like the type of guy you would want to go down the pub with and Jen sounds like the stoic type of lady you would want to marry.

All in all and excellent read and highly recommended.

I wanted an insight to kili while preparing for a trip. This is the best book I've read in advance, both enjoyable and informative. Unfortunately not something I can say about many of the other kili books out there! Think I'll just give up on those and read this again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab read, 22 Sept. 2013
This review is from: A Walk In The Park (Kindle Edition)
A good light holiday read, especially if, as I was, you are about to book to climb Kilimanjaro. Could easily relate to all in the group, felt their emotions and was willing them to the top. Also some very useful tips for the climb at the back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking the Talk, 26 Nov. 2012

This review is from: A Walk In The Park (Kindle Edition)
This book is the insightful journey of a young couple as they embark on a trip up Kilimanjaro. For anyone considering doing the same this is well worth a read. There are some really useful kit suggestions and you get a great feel for what you can expect when you are on the mountain. It is well written and the author keeps the reader's attention with snippets of fact (and football). It is also a compelling read - I was rooting for them to get to the top, especially his girlfriend!
