interesting but slanted,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster: A Personal Account of the Everest Disaster (Roman) (Taschenbuch)
When I first read this book, I thought it was an interesting although not outstanding bit of reporting. Then someone gave me a copy of Boukreev's "The Climb," which appears to be an honest but completely non-self-aggrandizing account of how Boukreev, in the face of spectacularly awful conditions, single-handedly rescued other climbers who surely would have died otherwise. It objectively recounts what one can only, realistically, call heroism. But while Boukreev risked his own life to save others, Krakauer slept in a tent; and afterward, despite receiving much direct evidence to the contrary, Krakauer insisted on casting aspersions and innuendo on Boukreev. Realizing Krakauer's lack of honor detracts significantly from any enjoyment of his work.
