Review Eiger Dreams Ventures Among Men and Mountains Jon Krakauer ð 2 Review Free read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ð Jon Krakauer Al fraternity of daredevils athletes and misfits stretching the limits of the possibleFrom the paranoid confines of a snowbound tent to the thunderous suffocating terror of a white out on Mount McKinley Eiger Dreams spins tales of driven lives sudden deaths and incredible victories This is a stirring vivid book about one of the most compelling and dangerous of all human pursui What a page turner And also the perfect book to drag along rock climbing or on a hike which is what I did I sat on a boulder and devoured this book until it was my turn to climb or belay Krakauer s narrative style is simple and straight forward but still evocative in its description of nature because he doesn t add anything superfluous and that s as it should be K2 Eiger Chamoix etc do not favor the superfluous and they certainly don t need anyone to dress up their reputations He draws senses of awe and fear from his reader by telling it like it is and if you re the outdoorsy type of person you ll get it I have no desire to try and summit McKinley but I understandSome of the information and celebrities are a bit dated as this was a collection of articles that he wrote in the 80 s but it s a great look at the history of the sport and the dangers that you might very well face today particularly the overpopulation on mountain peaks where few have earned the right to climb but many have paid to clutter up the slopesAll in all I was very impressed with Krakauer s writing style and his subject and I look forward to reading in the future
