5.0 out of 5 stars A story of tragedy and success - stunning, 7 Oct 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Death Zone: Climbing Everest Through the Killer Storm (Paperback)
This book provides a harsh realism to the dreams of Everest. One man's story of his ascent, brings to life the harsh realities of a summit attempt on the world's highest peak. Matt Dickinson shows the conflicts between the individuals within team, and bears his inner-most thoughts in a climate where everything should be kept well wrapped up!
In fact this is the most interest part of the book - how the 'players' act and react to what is happening.
Well written, with excellent backup material - the author does not dwell on the mundane planning aspects of such an attempt - but get's right into the action.
Don't be put off - this is not a mountineers book written by a mountineer.
Very impressed.
Oh - and it's a good book for a plane trip or holiday, stimulating, interesting and not too long! You won't be disappointed.
