The book is suspenseful at the end but welcoming and cheerful in the beginning almost like you joined the expedition. The book gives tons of interesting facts about some of the expeditions that took place on Mt. Everest, along with the tragic and heartbreaking back story of Jon Krakauers guide Robert Hall of Adventure Consultants.
I personally loved this book because it made me feel like I was climbing the mountain with Robert Halls expedition. I also loved this book because the majority of the book is chock-full of emotions so if you like good books that can make you cry I recommend this book
