The greatest living explorer.....
on 30 November 2017
An excellent read. Sir Ranulph's style is very easy, with the facts and his thoughts presented in a matter of fact way. his style is the same for all of his books about his expeditions, clear and concise. It briefly covers the same period of Living Dangerously (the first book I read of his) and then brings you up to his Everest success. The chapter entitled 'Ginny' must rate as the most moving i have read. having been a fan and reader of 'the greatest living explorer since reading Living dangerously in the '80's I found his words very touching, especially as he lost his life long friend and wife, sister and mother very close together. I highly recommend this book and if you can get it with the audio cd then you are in for a treat.
There's nothing better as the evenings close in than to curl up with a good book, this is one of those books.
