5.0 out of 5 stars Truly compelling., 10 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Death Zone: Climbing Everest Through the Killer Storm (Paperback)
"One of those books that you simply can't put down" - sounds like a cliche, but it sums up Matt's book fully.
It is not a long book, but is one that keeps pulling you back - Matt transports you right back to Everest in 1996 and it keeps moving until the end. This is a book that is perfect for airports etc, as it makes you oblivious to what is happening around you.
I am not a mountaineer, but this book makes for compelling reading with its observations. It is written in a way that makes it easy to grasp the enormity of what is happening, without the reader needing to have had similar experiences. It is every bit as graphic as if it had been a film.
