Author: Jon Krakauer
Genre: Wow. Ummm. It’s the story of a disaster on Mount Everest.
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 7.5
Number of pages: 289
Time period: 1990’s
My overall opinion: I’ve read better stories about disasters. This one was relatively interesting, though. Did include some swearing: the f word (at least four times), among others. Sometimes it was a little confusing, since Krakauer went back and forth, referring to people first by their full name, then just by last, then just by first, etc. I won’t read it again.
