Book Review of Into Thin Air : A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster

Into Thin Air : A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster
reviewed on + 190 more book reviews


I loved this book. It told the story of an expedition to Mt. Everest, that seemed to be flawed from the very beginning. Of course no one expected the storm that was brewing. Some of the climbers were novices, and climbed very slowly. Even one or two of the guides would not come off the mountain at their turnaround time. So many mishaps, wrong decisions and bad weather made this an awful trip. Of course everything Jon Krakauer writes is superb. Even if you aren't into adventure books you would like this one.
