I had never heard of this event until I saw the book at barnes.  I did some research on google to see what it was all about.  So many theories exist on what happened to this kids, mostly around the supernatural, extraterrestrial, or government secrets. I was intrigued, so I decided to see what his take on it was. I promise you the authors take on what happened is nothing you will find on google.  He personally travels to russia and follows the path of the hikers (despite having no mountaineering experience)  He debunks all the myths and puts a realistic ending to a story we will never truly know.  Reads like a narrative whether back in the setting of 1959 or his personal 2012 hike.  If you like "into thin air" or other books about mountaineering, this is worth the time

I have heard this story on various television shows (usually about aliens) so I was immediately intrigued by this book. The author wrote a very approachable and easy to understand book about this event, avoiding the extreme theories of aliens etc. It was very interesting and pulled me in immediately. Definitely a fun and fast read.

    Gripping

    Intersperses a gripping tale of tragic adventure with the author's heroic struggle to understand what happened without learning Russian. Finds a likely explanation for the mysteries of the first.

    Fascinating read

    Really a very fascinating book, though I got the sense that the author had to stretch his content to make an entire book of it. Still, I had a hard time putting it down.

    Very Intersting

    This is a very interesting read. The author does a good job of co-mingling past and present and draws an interesting conclusion as he strives to solve this tragic mystery.
