It is one of my longest reads.. Being a outdoor person, I enjoy reading this kind of stuff... But Jon, the author has his own way of writing.. If a book is intended to write about a tragedy that took place on a expedition, Jon's workw will consist of everything, from the description of the least important character of the tale to the history of the first summiteer to the personal investigation, about the tragedy, from the survivors.. The very bad thing about this writing is that, Jon mentioned lots of names in the manuscrip and he never maintains a standard for the person.. For example, There is a American named Sandy Pittman.. Jon sometimes refers to her as Sandy and other times as pittman and so other times American... This really confused me till the core.. This manuscript consists of 100s of names and Jon can call them in 3 types, that makes it 3 x 100s of names... It is a great account of Everest expedition of 1996.. It hangs to a very points which says... Reaching is top isnt the vistory, it is just the beginning of the most problamatic descent... Greavely loved it..
