    1. Muy bien escrito, explica de manera lineal la expedición al Everest del 96. Te mantiene en vilo la mayor parte del libro y da un sinfin de detalles sobre las expediciones comerciales. Al final describe la polemica que el autor tuvo con el guia de otra expedición, pero es menos interesante. A mi me entretuvo durante una semana, en la que leia cada vez que tenía un rato libre


    2. Fascinating real life account that I couldn't stop reading. I love mountains although not a climber and I thought the book might be full of technical terms but the book was very easy to follow and very well written. Utmost respect for anyone who attempts to climb one.


    3. The author gives a vivid account on the inaccuracy of our bodies against Everest. Tackles many other issues around the morale of climbing everest as a weekend climber. please stay home.


    4. Si eres fan de las aventuras y el montañismo Krakauer es tu hombre. También recomiendo Into the Wild del mismo autor.


    5. 100% recomendado. La historia ya se conoce pero el libro describe muy bien todo el proceso desde Kathmandu hasta la cima y todo lo ocurrido ese fatídico día.


    6. Leí la novela tras ver Everest. Interesante para hacerse una opinión acerca de las expediciones comerciales a las grandes cumbres


    7. Very well written, amazing story. There is no way to know what exactily happen upthere, but I do believe the facts that Jon explains so accuretly to the reader.


    8. Buen libro.El libro estaba como nuevo.Es muy interesante.Puedes viajar con este libro muy bien incluso en la montaña
