"Justifying idiocy" I thought when I first read about ice climbing. As the mother of two boys I am always trying to figure out the WHY of male behavior. Krakauer has given me more insight into the male facination with extreme sports than any other source. He goes beyond mere descriptons of the thrill to examine the WHY. JK provides a peek into the male psyche for those of us fortunate enough not to posses one. Some of the adventures beg credulity - too much hypoxia Jon? But I'd give this book 4 pitons up.

What I love about Jon Krakauer's books is that they talk about a subject that I have no interest in--climbing--but I still find them fascinating. I've been reading reviews of his work, and I can't decide if he is a tremendously gifted writer or he is the beneficiary of fantastic material. I would be interested to hear other people's comments about his writing and why he appeals to so many people, or if you have any information resources to point to, that would be great, too. Thank you.

I had never heard of Jon Krakauer before I encountered him on the front page of the Amazon site. Eiger Dreams is a collection of short autobiographical stories concerning mountaineering exploits. I found his style clear and direct, and ha captured a freewheeling spirit totally in keeping woth the subject matter. I enjoyed the book immensely. If you too enjoyed this, then I recommend two books by an English climber, Joe Simpson, called 'Touching the Void' and 'This Game of Ghosts'

Throughout Eiger Dreams, I not only relived my limited mountaineering experiences, but was carried to new heights in places I never dreamed I would go. Krakauer truly captures the experience you get from base to summit, as well as the hardships and very real dangers you face each time you step out of our neatly packaged world and into the "real" world of man not against nature, but man in union with nature

An enjoyable summer read. Krakauer writes of places both familiar and unfamiliar. Each tale is exciting and gripping.

This was written before Into Thin Air and as such, it is a more unabashedly enthusiastic and innocent. I really enjoyed reading every page. It was too short! Please note that this book is a collection of short stories/essays/magazine articles about different climbs (from Alaska to Austria) but also about other climbing and mountaineering themes. The section on bouldering was fascinating. Highly recommend.

After reading "Into Thin Air", I decided to read Jon Krakauer's other books. This is a collection of 12 stories, 11 of which were very good. (Didn't care for "A Mountain Higher Than Everest?") Mountain climbing is not a subject I would have thought would interest me, but I have a feeling that Jon Krakauer could make the telephone directory into a bestseller.

One of the most memorable was his personal story of climbing a remote peak in Alaska solo... at around 20 years old, he just left his construction job and set out for Alaska because it seemed like doing the climb would straighten out his life -- hair raising misadventures result, and his commentary (from age 35 or whatever) on his youthful idealism is pretty funny and real

In my humble opinion this book is not in the class of Krakauer's other two books. The stories were, undoubtable exciting (I especially liked the K2 account), but it didn't reach the height of Into thin Air or the depth and discovery of Into the Wild. Well worth the money, but not quite as hair-raising.

Nobody writes a story better than Jon Krakauer. Even if you know nothing of the subject of mountaineering, you'll quickly find yourself engulfed in a world so terrifying and familiar, you'll feel you are in a large screen theater with surround sound. The first of three freaking masterpieces by Jon.
