  Touching the Void: The True Story of One Man's Miraculous Survival by Joe Simpson

Review by: Athony P.
Other, Grade 10

The most interesting thing is the accident when Simson went through emotional torment when he cut Joe's life force the rope because ve Joe was dead.
Joe went through emotional and physical torment, Joe had to talk to himself and will himself to survive by himself on the mountain.
Joe had to put up with a broken leg and endured constant pain in his leg. Crawling on his stomach in the snow and feeling hungry and thirsty for many days.

I enjoyed reading and looking at the photos in this adventure book because of Joe will to get through the snow and down the crevasse back to base camp.
I was drawn into the book when the accident happened. I wanted know how to Joe Simpson survived on the mountain and how he made it back to the base camp.
