  1. W. E. Young W. E. Young says:

    This is a well written book which tells the tale of a hunger to succeed and a driven almost selfish view of a rather self obsessed climber.His decision to summit on his own beggars belief and then descend blind is almost impossible to believe You have to think he stretched the truth as to the severity of his condition.What is even remarkable is that he uses his faith almost justify his selfishness His wife with the extremely annoyingly spelling of JoAnna comes across as either a superwoman or a bullied door mat I am not sure which but how or why she puts up with Brian I am undecided not many would Glad I read it but both Brian and JoAnna would not be on my wish list to meet.

    I read this book by a change in my life circumstances and prompted by someone to read it So I did From a personal perspective, I have learned a lot about mountaineering but about someone s personal struggle and the part God had to play in Brian s life and his summit attempt A must read for any explorer in whatever situation they may find themselves in to show that through adversity a way can be found Gripping and interesting, a great read for all.

    True story of Brian Dickinson s solo ascent to the summit of Mt Everest and then his miraculous descent while suffering from snow blindness Engaging writing with full scope of Brian s life, not just his trip to Everest His faith story is included, but it did not feel preachy to me Pictures at the end If you enjoy mountain true life adventure stories, I highly recommend.

    An utterly amazing book, filled with adventure, details, gorgeous descriptions, love and longing, family and faith I read late into the night and deeply appreciated the experiences Brian described so vividly.Maybe this book will become a movie at some point, showing courage and love without having to revert to swearing and violence to make a point.
