Very quickly, Rosie Thomas makes you care passionately about this love triangle. The expedition itself is only part of the book, but a very gripping part. You really go up the mountain with the characters, but for anyone who's worried that it sounds a bit sporty, don't be. Somehow Rosie Thomas makes the stunning beauty of Nepal as important as the adventure, and above all she makes the story of the three main characters what this book is really about. Each of them has their own demons to face - and does so.
It's a really wonderful read, quite unforgettable. I will be recommending it to everyone I know who likes an engrossing, well written novel.
I am not a great fan of soppy romance, which I thought this was going to be. It was far from that and I enjoyed it much more than I expected to.
Sam McGarth, Finch Buchanan and Al Hood are the protagonists, involved in a triangular relationship, past and present. It is this relationship that brings them together on an expedition to climb Everest.
I actually know very little about mountaineering so found the detail fascinating. I do find it difficult to understand why people want to push their body to its limits and beyond though. The experience of the climbers struggling to climb Everest in this story is horrendous. I was particularly interested though to read about Namche and the trek up to Everest Base Camp as I have a niece who as part of her travels is due to go there.
If you like a good romance with some drama thrown in, you cannot fail to enjoy this.
