It¿s the return of the ¿choose your own adventure¿ books! You remember those, right? This time around, the folks behind The Worst- Case Scenario series REALLY bring the adventure to life. It¿s a combination of the probable real-life adventure they chose and the way in which the outcomes were created. Did you know it takes about TWO MONTHS to actually summit? No lie. The number of times you have to climb to Camp I and then back down etc....no wonder it's called the adventure of a lifetime. When creating this book and the very real outcomes, the authors consulted a real live mountaineer, Mr. David Morton, thus adding that extra depth and insight found throughout the text. You¿ll feel like you¿re right there with your fellow teammates every shallow breath of the way. Let¿s not forget about the illustrations throughout the book lending you a visual guide to your literary adventure to the top of the world. In striking black and white, the illustrator brings to life the vivid events and images being described in the text. Things to note.... first, the special Expedition File included at book¿s end. It's meant to PREPARE you for the journey with information and hints you'll need along the way. Second, there are MORE books already scheduled in the series, so if you enjoy this adventure (as I did) there will be more to come. Recommended read for all ages. It¿s an adventure in the making and a learning experience all in one. What¿s not to love about that? Happy reading.... ^_^
