I'm a passionate reader of mountaineering literature. Specifically books about the 8.000er peaks in Himalaya and Karakorum are in my focus.
I liked the book as it referred to some situations and expeditions that I did not know until then.
My major "but" ist, that the book was written by a journalist. You can tell the difference in the way which and how athmosphere and tension are built up. To me the "mood" is very similar as in Jon Krakauer's "Into thin air". Although, I'm sure, Michael Kodas tries to provide as much objective evidence as possible, the narrative is full of exaggerations and accusations.
I would recomment to read a couple of more books about the topic and not to take for granted, Michael Kodas' storyline.
