    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 hereameless punning aside 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 something that cost [...]

    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 accused [...]

    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 loud than 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 [...]

    Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Everest has always been a magnet for kooks, publicity seekers, hopeless romantics, and others with a shaky hold on reality Welcome to one of Kelly s creepy obsessions Advance apologies this might get rambly Okay, so I m totally obsessed with all things Everest and CAN NOT WAIT to see the movie that details the same tragic events which are covered in this book even though just watching the preview in IMAX 3 D made me have diarrhea I have spent the past mont [...]

    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 reads like a memoir, since the author was present for the events of the story That made it a much palatable read for me, rather than a book about a [...]

  7. Michael

    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.

  8. Petra X

    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 [...]

    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

    I can t even imagine how Jon Krakauer was able to write this story which came out in 2007, just one year after the deadly expedition in May 1996.where nine climbers were killed on Mount Everest Krakauer is an astonishing journalist, and writer His telling this story was particularly compelling being an experienced climber himself He was physically there when the tragedy took place Descending from Camp Four after the storm, at 25,000 feet, Krakauer turned to look back at the upper reaches of the [...]

  11. Jonathan Ashleigh

    This book was well told At times I felt oxygen deprived and often this made me unaware of tragedy I am not a huge fan of non fiction but this is worth a read.

  12. Paul Bryant

    This is the most defaced book I ever read It must have been used in a school at one point Up to page 69 there are two different people highlighting passages in pink and green but then in the margins, suddenly there is this Katie is Eric s fave, to bad for him, he is silly, I hope he s a good kisserAnd then on page 77, which otherwise would be blank This is the most boring book I have ever read, I swear if anyone read this book by choice they are the biggest idiot in the worldJason is such a dork [...]

  13. Arah-Lynda

    Several authors and editors I respect counseled me not to write the book as quickly as I did they urged me to wait two or three years and put some distance between me and the expedition in order to gain some crucial perspective Their advice was sound, but in the end I ignored it mostly because what happened on the mountain was gnawing my guts out I thought that writing the book might purge Everest from my life It hasn t of course But it is the way this reads, as Jon Krakauer, a client of Rob Hal [...]

    Does your dream holiday involve spending north of fifty grand to risk a fatal aneurysm, walk past the dead bodies of weaker adventurers who ve come before you and possibly lose your fingers, toes and nose, if not your life If so, then step right up to climb Mount Everest Seriously though, If you ve ever thought you might like to climb Everest, read this book If you still want to attempt the highest mountain in the world after finishing Into Thin Air, you are a braver person than I.This is a mast [...]

    Jon Krakauer standing on the summit of Mt Everest Straddling the top of the world, one foot in China and the other in Nepal, I cleared the ice out of my oxygen mask, hunched a shoulder against the wind, and stared down into the vastness of Tibet.You have heard the saying, truth is stranger than fiction In this case truth is frightening, compelling than fiction This is the first hand account of the 1996 tragedy on Mt Everest that claimed the lives of 12 mountaineers, many of them highly skilled [...]

  16. Kim

    Read within the span of 10 hours This is not a hard read, well, if you take out the subject matter I picked this up because Into the Wild has been out or on hold for months at the library so I thought I d at least get a feel for Jon Krakauer s writing style I also have to admit that it wasn t the writing style that sold me, not that it isn t well done, but usually I m not drawn to personal accounts or non fiction, in general, unless it is a subject that really fascinates me I m an escapist and s [...]

    NO SPOILERS May 10, 1996 was a very, very bad day to be climbing to the roof of the world On that day, journalist and avid mountain climber Jon Krakauer reached the summit of Mt Everest with a group as part of a guided expedition He was on assignment for Outside magazine and was one of the few in his group to survive this expedition after a ferocious storm hit out of the blue Into Thin Air is as much a meticulous detailing of this tragedy as it is a personal catharsis, and he says as much in the [...]

  18. Tatiana

    If Krakauer s intention was to kill all of our romantic ideas about mountain climbing with this book, he undoubtedly succeeded Whatever idealistic notions of bravery, athleticism, adventure, and brotherhood I had about this sport , are now gone forever.What Krakauer delivers instead is a very tough picture of people who are ready to risk their lives and lives of those around them guides, Sherpas, rescue workers for the purpose of satisfying some masochistic macho aspirations of theirs or, even w [...]

  19. Paul

    I m just going to come out and say it I just don t get it.Even after reading this book, I just cannot understand why anybody would want to climb Everest If nobody had ever done it before, I could understand it from the perspective of exploration and new discoveries, but this is a mountain that has now been climbed so often it has a serious garbage problem From Jon Krakauer s descriptions in this book, it actually sounds like a bit of a shithole or the opposite of a hole, I suppose.Krakauer lists [...]

  20. Natalie Vellacott

    This is probably the best climbing book I have read despite the controversy surrounding some aspects It was as enthralling as books like Endurance and as readable I was with the author on the mountain and felt the terrible pain of the losses they endured, the guilt of the survivors and the many what ifs after the event.The author relays his personal experiences climbing Everest in 1996 with a number of groups This was the tragic year when many of the participants didn t make it off the mountain [...]

    About a year ago, I read a book called Blind Descent The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth which was basically all about finding the basement of the earth A group of cave divers descended into a seemingly bottomless cave full of all sorts of unknown danger For some reason after finishing it, I didn t return to any exploration books even though this tale fascinated me It wasn t until recently when I listened to an episode of Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier s SModcast in which Mosier recom [...]

    I started this year with one fantastic book Let me say that you do not have to be interested in mountain climbing to enjoy this true story of the 1996 tragedy on Mount Everest, written by one who was there It is an amazing story and will have you still asking the question why does man climb mountains Someone once said because they are there but that really isn t the answer I have put a quote by a famous mountaineer at the end of this review which partially explains that enigmaThe author, who is [...]

  23. Randy

    Jon Krakauer is a student of extreme behaviors and those who engage in them, and he happened to be on Mt Everest during the notorious May 10 11, 1996, disaster A series of seemingly minor mishaps, oversights, and questionable decisions kept climbers moving up the mountain hours later than any reasonable turnaround time At 29,000 feet, that would have been bad enough given cold, hypoxia, and a finite supply of supplemental oxygen, but an unexpected storm that moved in from the south turned a prob [...]

  24. Algernon

    My 5 star rating reflects both the quality of the book and a lifetime passion for mountains I ve devoured in the past all books and magazine articles I could find, following climbers from Cerro Torres to Eiger or Matterhorn, Trango Towers, Kilimanjaro or McKinley The Jewels in the Crown have always been the Himalayan peaks, with their musical names promising adventure and fame to the bold and determined climber Nanga Parbat, Makalu, Annapurna, Kangchenjunga, Chomolungma, Lhotse, Dhaulagiri, Gash [...]

    I had no idea what shelf to put this on So I made up a new one, lacking the number of characters needed, this shelf should be called, true stories about things I would never do or try to do But maybe that is a lie Like Krakauer I too have had a near death experience while engaged in climbing , like the doomed people in this book, my own life was possibly endangered by faulty decisions made by those who are being paid to know better My own experience is pretty undramatic, and was rectified in a f [...]

    I live in Seattle and on a reasonably clear day Mount Rainier, at 14,000 feet, graces the skyline with her majestic beauty and mystique Sometimes it looks like you can reach out and touch it It has an undeniable allure There are lots and lots of climbers up there every year, and it is a highly desirable North American peak for people to scale that still offers challenge and excitement and danger High altitude mountain climbing is not for the faint of heart yet it is easy to understand how people [...]

    Unfortunately, the sort of individual who is programmed to ignore personal distress and keep pushing for the top is frequently programmed to disregard signs of grave and imminent danger as well This forms the nub of a dilemma that every Everest climber eventually comes up against in order to succeed you must be exceedingly driven, but if you re too driven you re likely to die Above 26,000 feet, over, the line between appropriate zeal and reckless summit fever becomes grievously thin Thus the slo [...]

    I have never read a non fiction which was literally unputdownable, the way this book was I just couldnt keep it aside for a minute and finished reading it in 2 days I dont remember finishing a non fiction that fast Now it is one of my all time favourites.I love to travel and I am adventurous at heart even though I have never done anything adventurous in my life As a result, I reallyyyyy liked this book In order to succeed you must be exceedingly driven, but if you re too driven you re likely to [...]
