Most interesting was the level of detail about relations between 'client' (explorer) and hired help, i.e. the Sherpas - it was amazing to read how much they varied from village to village - generally the quieter, less-popular areas yielded the best porters/sherpas. It was also very interesting for me, as a woman, to read of the women porters and their general place in Nepalese society back in those days.
I probably read the book in a couple of days due to its level of interest and have kept for future reads.
