Into Thin Air : A Personal Account of Jon Krakauer's Ego,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster: A Personal Account of the Everest Disaster (Roman) (Taschenbuch)
Jon Krakauer spends a remarkable amount of this book alluding to the fact that he is a much stronger individual than most of the other paying clients. I was impressed by his original story in outside magazine, this book didn't add much (apart from the fact that the second time around he got his facts straight).
Near the end of the book he endlessly whines about the fact that nobody tried to wake him to help with the rescue, despite the fact that he already mentioned that someone tried (and failed) to wake him to help with the rescue. In the end I was surprised that I hadn't really learned any more from reading this book than I had in reading the original story in Outside.
It's a good story, if you aren't bothered by Jon's ego trip. I was.
