I'll admit, I've become an Everest 1996 disaster junkie of late. This is the second book in so many weeks on the subject and I can't seem to get enough. You really come to know and care about these characters (using the word loosely, since they are real people). I liked this book even more than Krakauer's - much more depth and background and description. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Excellent book. I've never set foot on a mountain of any size, I actually felt like I was there. Tragic, yes.

This is an excellent book for the readers who enjoy this genre. This doctor goes on an expedition to Everest and has to deal with the many physical and emotional that the men who are trying to get to the summit endure. Very well written and keeps you enthralled to the very end.
