My Reviews

 
Dramatic, Adventurous, Difficult
Documentary Style

I read this book with a book club. I would never have read it by my own choice. The style of writing is like a documentary. The story line doesn't really flow smoothly. I admit that I am a friction fan, & that I didn't really like the main character (also the author); he seemed selfish & egotistical to me.
The most interesting part of the book is the last quarter of the book. Krakauer begins to question himself (& I think he should) after the ordeal. He admits that after the book was first published, he received a lot of criticism from some readers. The questions raised are not clear cut & worth pondering; however, a little more humility would have made for a better book.
