An very candid and personal account of the expedition and the consequences of mistakes on high altitude mountaineering expeditions. Loved the detailed storytelling, however the narration wasn't that great, the attempt at using accents for the dialogue was a bit distracting but it didn't detract from the story too much.

Straight from the horse's mouth!

Kenneth Cook's depiction of rural Australia is deliciously grotesque. I found the protagonist quite unlikable and struggled to realate or sympathise with his plight, however I enjoyed the writing and the subtle menace that Cook imbues in seemingly ordinary people and situations.

A classic well told.

Chandler's style is timeless and the narrator did a good job conveying Marlow as the sarcastic knight errant.
