    1. This book was one of the best books I've ever read in my entire life, and I normally do not like really any books, but this one was really, really good. Just everything about it was awesome. It had me biting my nails constantly. It was a bit confusing at time especially in the beginning because it started when John krakauer and the others that made it, were at the summit of Everest. Then it went on about the history of Everest and then it got to all the action, so I'd say the beginning was a lit [...]


    2. Following the 2014 tragedy on Everest, When an avalanche caused the deaths of so many Sherpas, I felt compelled to read Into Thin Air once again. If I thought I would find the reason why men and women need to climb this and other mega-mountains, I was disappointed. I simply do not understand the desire to stand on top of the world. Check that: I understand the desire, but it would never do what one must do to get there and back safely.


    3. I found the beginning a bit confusing when they introduced so many people in such a short time. I loved getting insight into what motivates people to put themselves through torture, sacrifice their most important relationships and put their lives on the line. The drive to climb Mt.Everest seems similar to addiction. This was a heart breaking and captivating read.


    4. Into thin air by Jon Krakauer.An account of a daring attempt to climb mount Everest when conditions were not good. Well written to give the reader a feeling of the pain and hardship endured by the climbers, these excursions will continue as long as the mountains are there and lives will be endangered and lost. It is hard to explain the incredible urge to conquer the mountain.
