I read The Mountain Between Us with a buddy in my online book club, The Reading Cove.

Unfortunately, I'm in the minority on this one. The plot was too contrived and the writing style just wasn't for me. How convenient that Ben's an orthopedic surgeon? And also knows chapter and verse about surviving in such harsh conditions?

So I was totally bored after the initial crash, because the narrative kept coming to a screeching halt with constant flash backs to Ben Payne's life with his wife.

With the plot moving at a drunken snail's pace, I lost interest, and the twist at the end felt meh to me since I never really bought into the story and characters to begin with.

Here's hoping I enjoy the movie a bit more!
