This is not a review I don t feel like writing a review for this book, but I feel like I should at least say something about it because I did enjoy it I mean, it did make me utter Jesus Christ out loudthan one time, and I don t often talk to myself while I am reading a book I almost want to post a picture of a LOLcat with a caption that says This buk wuz gud, but I don t have one So These are a few things I learned from reading this book 1 If a person decides to climb Everest, the This is not a review I don t feel like writing a review for this book, but I feel like I should at least say something about it because I did enjoy it I mean, it did make me utter Jesus Christ out loudthan one time, and I don t often talk to myself while I am reading a book I almost want to post a picture of a LOLcat with a caption that says This buk wuz gud, but I don t have one So These are a few things I learned from reading this book 1 If a person decides to climb Everest, they are likely to encounter dead bodies along the route up to the summit.2 Lobuje, which is on the way to Everest Base Camp, is a place that overflows with human excrement While Krakauer was there in 1996, he wrote Huge stinking piles of human feces lay everywhere it was impossible not to walk in it Lovely Insert Want to get away from it all commercial here.3 Without the assistance of Sherpas, it is unlikely that climbers would be able to reach the summit at all Besides schlepping tons of your crap, they also know Utterly harrowing and propulsive I could not put this book down This is another book that details people s misguided quests to conquer nature to see nature as something to be conquered It s also another great cold weather read, to make you realize that, really, it s not so cold out after all. I ll be the first to admit that I m not the biggest fan of non fiction I prefer to listen to podcasts or interviews, rather than read straight up non fiction about a certain topic And as someone who isn t particularly interested in climbing or sports in general, this wouldn t be a book that I d normally read But I m so glad that I did.It definitely readslike a memoir, since the author was present for the events of the story That made it a muchpalatable read for me, rather than a I ll be the first to admit that I m not the biggest fan of non fiction I prefer to listen to podcasts or interviews, rather than read straight up non fiction about a certain topic And as someone who isn t particularly interested in climbing or sports in general, this wouldn t be a book that I d normally read But I m so glad that I did.It definitely readslike a memoir, since the author wa Into Thin Air or Injustice of many kinds on the Mountain.Until almost the end this book was exactly as I expected it to be with just one exception It was the story of a journalist climbing Mount Everest both as a journalist and as a mountaineer Ideal getting paid to do your hobby It was interesting because Krakauer is a damn good writer and because its fascinating to see the details of how the mountain is climbed Its also disappointing because few individuals do it by themselves, without a Into Thin Air or Injustice of many kinds on the Mountain.Until almost the end this book was exactly as I expected it to be with just one exception It was the story of a journalist climbing Mount Everest both as a journalist and as a mountaineer Ideal getting paid to do your hobby It was interesting because Krakauer is a damn good writer and because its fascinating to see the details of how the mountain is climbed Its also disappointing because few individuals do it by themselves, without a major support, like the guy who bicycled all the way around Europe to Nepal and then climbed the mountain alone I would have liked to have read his story but it was only alluded to in the book For everyone else its a package tour for the fit and not necessarily experienced who want to climb Everest and have an awful lot What a read to start 2018 I enjoyed the majority of this, and I ll admit I fell down a bit of a black hole when it came to the controversy behind Krakauer s perspective Review will be up tomorrow RELEASE THE KRAKAUER seriously, it is time to just raze everest and be done with it already i mean, it s big and impressive but it is just taking up all this room and killing people so why do we even need it any can t we just get over it really, i think it has reached its peak and is all downhill from here.shameless punning aside.so this started out as an article that KRAKAUER was asked to write for outside magazine about the commercialization of everest it should embarrass us that s RELEASE THE KRAKAUER seriously, it is I recently attended the Banff mountain film festival in Canada One of the key speakers was Simone Moro, the close friend of Anatoli Boukreev, the climber who was killed in an avalanche several years ago on Annapurna and whom Krakauer pretty much vilifies in this book as not having done enough to save the lives of those caught in the blizzard on Mount Everest in May of 1996 Needless to say, the vibe in the room was chilly whenever the subject of Krakauer s version of events came up he was accu I recently attended the Banff mountain film festival in Canada One of the key speakers was Simone Moro, the close friend of Anatoli Boukreev, the climber who was killed in an avalanche several years ago on Annapurna and whom Krakauer pretty much vilifies in this book as not having done enough to sav
