A haunting story. Five stars from a non climber.
on 7 November 2017
I am not a climber and only bought this book because it was recommended on a radio programme. It is haunting, scary and brutal but I could barely put the book down. This must have been painful to write, and there is an honesty in the acceptance that neurological impairment has made all versions of honesty more questionable than the usual bias of individual perspective and view. This book speaks to questions that go to heart of people in extreme circumstances, even more intriguing because they choose to be there, driven perhaps, but stil a choice. I think the book was written with as open a mind as is possible and I hope I read it the same way.
