Motivation from Mount Moldoveanu,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darkness Descending (Kindle Edition)
Ken's journey from the avalanche on Mt Moldoveanu via Romanian and UK hospitals to learning to walk again then culminating in creating 'The Fan Dance Race' is awe inspiring. He has done this raw material justice in putting it out for all to learn from in a well written book. He makes real the harrowing crawl / hop / walk for three days to safety in a remote Transylvanain hamlet, managing to make me shiver as he described his struggle to survive the soul numbing cold. Then travelling from safety to recovery is even more harrowing and again he captures the emotional suffering all too well. It's perhaps not a book for the squeamish but certainly deserves as wide a readership as possible. I've downloaded it to my Kindle, bought a 'physical' copy on here as well, which I will be passing on, and will be buying my third copy when I will be privileged to meet him at the Old Red Telephone Box later in the month. I can't put it more strongly than that- I've bought in three times. Treat yourself, do it at least once.
