This climbing trip report is drama filled and highly emotional. Krakauer's account is amazing and terrifying. A must read for any aspiring alpinist.

I am 12 years old and am enjoying the book! It has some slow parts but almost is always exciting!

There is not much I can say after reading this monstrosity of a novel. When reading this sorry, pitiful excuse for a book, I felt myself going through feeling of anguish, disgust, and fatigue on an unimaginable scale. I never again want to experience the pain and suffering I experienced while engrossed in this terrible, agonizing work of literature. After putting myself through months of therapy, I have come to the conclusion that the only way to get this horrifying experience out of my mind forever is to receive a full frontal lobotomy. And if that doesn't work, suicide is the only way. You see, this book had a profound and long lasting effect not only on my conscience, but on my mental health as a whole. Never again will I be able to view life as I used to before reading this book. Never again will I be able to enjoy the simple pleasures brought to me by enjoyable activities. My life, as well as my mental well being has been tarnished forever by this particular book. The true name of Satan has been revealed to me, and that name is Jon Krakauer.

This book is really great. It tells all about his tragic journey into Mount Everest.
I only gave this book four stars because I found it some what confusing when he went back and fourth between trips.
