The mountain gods were very protective of Manaslu, a huge two-pronged peak in the Nepal Himalaya, and the eighth highest mountain in the world. When a Japanese team tried to climb it in the 1950s, the gods sent an avalanche in their wake which destroyed a nearby monastery and set the local population against them. They returned the following year, but were met with sticks and stones and made to undergo what in schoolboy parlance is known as a "de-bagging".

While Mark Horrell had never returned trouserless from an expedition and intended to keep that record, he was determined to give the mountain a go, and set out to climb it with regular climbing partners Mark and Ian in Autumn 2011.

A more luckless trio of wannabe mountaineers would be hard to find. Between them they had made no fewer than eight attempts to climb an 8000 metre peak without success, and the author was on his fourth attempt alone. Would it be any different this time? And perhaps less importantly, would they keep their trousers? This is the story of their climb as part of a commercial expedition team.

This ebook contains many of the author's photographs from the expedition.

HASH(0x925f8900) von 5 Sternen A great read 27. August 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is the third book I've read from this author. It did not disappoint! I loved every minute of this book. He has a way of writing that makes the reader really feel like they are a part of the expedition. Buy it! I can't believe it was only .99 cents.. it was the best dollar I've spent in a long time.
HASH(0x9e6b6774) von 5 Sternen Built-in drama (will he summit?) in a great expedition journal 28. Oktober 2015
Von Peter E. McGinn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is my third expedition journal by Mark Horrell that I have purchased, and ot is my favorite so far. I am not sure I can even say why - not for any obvious difference in writing quality or style. This is another personal account of his attempt to conquor one of the "death zone" Himalayan mountains, written in his blunt fairly uncensored way. It shows him and his teammates (and other climbers) both at their best and at their worst. But as he is honest and fair, there are no unwarranted attacks or revenge seeking entries. Indeed, often even as he puts down one of the less flattering entries, he immediately offsets it by allowing that the thing he is reporting might be justified or at least understandable.

Perhaps I enjoyed this volume more because I was aware that he and a couple of his teammates were trying to climb their first major peak, and there was a sense that they were walking a razor's edge as to whether they would all succeed. In any case, it was another enjoyable adventure read by the author, a refreshing peek at the sport by a man who is self-deprecating and honest about his not being an elite climber, but rather one of those who requires a one-on-one Sherpa to help assure his survival. But he is not one to catch "summit fever" and venture up when he shouldn't.risking the lives of would-be rescuers. That is good for us, for it means that.he is all that more likely to make it back down and write more of these climbing accounts that support his mountaineering attempts.

And as usual, plenty of great pictures along the way, which I recently discovered I could zoom in size in my Kindle. Cool.

I have pre-ordered his first full-length book and look forward to reading it.
HASH(0x928122e8) von 5 Sternen A candid look at the experience of participating in a commercial mountaineering expedition 4. März 2013
Von David Henley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Commercial expeditions to the world's highest mountains are a growing phenomenon and have become quite controversial, since a significant number of them have been involved in deaths and injuries of their clients, most notably in 1996 on Mount Everest, when many members of several expeditions died in one storm. For those of us who would like to participate in such an adventure, but could never afford the cost, the author provides a very readable account, in daily diary format, of exactly what it's like to be a member of one of these expeditions, and to have to deal not only with their leaders (some of whom have tenuous credentials at best), but with other expedition members, with their personal goals and quirks.

Mark Horrell's style of writing is straight-forward and interesting but you have to get used to just jumping into his journeys without much background. He is interesting and a decent writer with thoughtful insights. I admire his lifestyle and adventure-some choices but for those of us who are mountaineering omnivores, Horrell is different. Be prepared for more of a diary-type of journalism with little introductory information. But that's okay! I read everything he writes with all this in mind and enjoy him a great deal.

Von Jamespain - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The writing is very authentic which includes the boredom of a long climb. The tone/voice is also authentic but being authentic lacks some of the flair found in other adventure books. Horrell knows his stuff and gives you a glimpse into the diary of his adventures. In future additions it would be nice if he added a little bit of history of mountains and region, but again that's not what he's doing.
