    Fantastic read

    This book is captivating. Anyone looking for a classic adventure told from the perspective of people venturing into the truly unknown, look no farther.

    The real adventure was finding the mountain...

    This was not the first book I ever read about mountain climbing, just the best. I've read several Everest accounts, up to and including the '96 tragedy, but none of them can hold a candle to the overwhelming adventure these frenchmen were on. First of all, they didn't even know which mountain they were going to climb; initially it was supposed to be Dhaulagiri - which they had to locate due to out of date maps. Once they found it, they realized it was beyond them at that time. So, then they had to locate Annapurna, again due to out of date maps. Suffice it to say you will shiver in sympathy as the rest of the adventure unfolds. (You didn't think I was going to give it all away did you?)
