1.0 von 5 Sternen Charcter assassination on Everest, 24. April 2000
Jon K fails to get the point, writing a good story is not enough when it comes to mountaineering books. This book is a great read, but read The Climb by Anatoli Boukreev and you will feel as if JK has taken you for a ride with his good story. This is because a good story does not need to stick to the facts. It is clear from the reaction of the American Alpine Club to Boukreev - awarding him a high honour for his actions on Everest- that they did not share JKs view of Boukreevs conduct.In short JK uses Boukreev as a stooge/villian around which to base his most gripping narative and in doing so absolves himself of blame. Read The Climb after you have read this book and you will get the point.This book will grip non climbers but it a slur to the memory of one of the greatest High Altitude Climbers the world has ever seen - shame on you JK
