    Description
    In May 1996 a number of expeditions attempted to climb Mount Everest on the Southeast Ridge route. Crowded conditions slowed their progress and late in the day 23 men and women, including the expedition leaders, were caught in a ferocious blizzard. Disorientated and out of oxygen, climbers struggled to find their way to safety. Alone and climbing blind, Anatoli Boukreev rescued a number of climbers from certain death. This honest and gripping account includes the transcript of the Mountain Madness debriefing, recorded five days after the tragedy, as well as G. Weston de Walt's response to Jon Krakauer. 'Powerful . . . a breath of brisk, sometimes bitter clarity . . . Boukreev did the one thing that denies the void. He took action. He chose danger, and he saved lives.' New York Times Book Review 'The best book I've read this year . . . The Climb has a story that will grip and haunt you.' Alex Garland, author of The Beach and The Tesseract

    Emotional Read

    Anatoli's response to 'Into Thin Air' , this book is an emotional account of what happened in 1996 on Everest. I read this book immediately after 'Into thin Air' and cannot but think that 1996 Everest Disaster was something that will always remain a mystery shrouded in bad weather. Must read for those who are enchanted about Everest.

    The Climb

    A very detailed account of the 1996 Everest disaster and about Anatoli Boukreev's life in general. A must read for anyone fascinated by mountains....especially for those who have read Into Thin Air. A much more detailed and non-judgemental book. Definitely a must read

    Perspective Account

    A must read for people who have read 'into the thin air' cos this gives the other perspective of the tragedy. A comparatively detailed personal account and again comparatively neutral account. drama is not as gripping as into the thin air but really good. a good read.
