I am a high school sophomore and I read this great book for my research project. This book was very helpful in answering many of the questions that I needed answered. I truly did enjoy reading this book and I am grateful that I have chosen to read this book for my project. The book was very enjoyable to read because it had so many interesting facts, quotes, and stories. Also, I can’t forget to mention all the wonderful pictures that are in the book. The pictures were really helpful in keeping the reading entertaining and the captions, explaining the pictures, give a little bit more knowledge about the mountain. There isn’t a single page in the book without a picture, excluding the credits and index pages. The pictures really helped give me a visualization of what I was reading and made me feel as if I were actually on the mountain itself. I also found that the book was very easy to understand, since the authors had a great way with words. All eight chapters of the book, plus the foreword, are written in a way that has kept me attentive throughout the entire book. In my opinion, I believe this book to be quite similar to a regular history book, but shorter and way more interesting to read. Overall, I loved reading this book and I highly recommend this book to all who wish to learn about Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.
