and climbing an extremely high and difficult mountain with no previous experience really grip the reader. The only irritation is her use of 1960s hippy expressions such as 'dude', 'man', 'cool' etc. Come on Amy, you're in your thirties and emotionally mature, you don't need to write down to a particular audience.
Look forward to your next book.
There are no softening of the edges, she takes on mountains she isn't fit enough to climb, sleeps with men she really shouldn't, hangs out with some tedious hippies, it's funny. We've either all been there, or has a mate who has. It's one of those life defining journeys, that are life defining because loads of really good stuff happens and a lot of crap stuff too, all retold in hilarious detail.
By the end of the book the author is your mate, and you end up reading the section at the end featuring all the people she wants to thank because you don't want it to end.
If you are looking for a well described tale of South America, a laugh, a hero you want to root for, and a conversational unputdownable book. This is it.
