"A Impossible Climb Two Men Against"
Although the book is about the successful ascent, it always makes me feel sad when i read it. At their time of writing it would be only be 4 years before both Joe and Pete would die on Everest. This fact is always in your mind when reading Pete's account in first person. and can be quite upsetting to think about.
But this is just my personal thought and shouldn't be taken into account that this is an amazing book and should by anyone who considers themselves a mountaineer!
When I saw that it was available second hand I jumped at the chance to buy it. It is a wonderful, gripping account of an expedition that still seems incredible. The honesty and authenticity of the writing, particularly in relation to the exploration of the intensity of the relationship between the two climbers, make this an absorbing read. Highly recommended.
