Journal Entry 5 by wingFifnawing at Voorburg, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Monday, October 7, 2019
Even if you don't know much about mountaineering, and have to read in between the terminology, there's no mistaking the power of this story. Just looking at the map at the front of the book and trying to imagine the distance he had to drag himself in those conditions... mind-blowing. Simpson does a good job of describing how it felt for him, and for Simon, to go through this.

Journal Entry 7 by wingDiane-Fraserwing at Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear United Kingdom on Sunday, October 13, 2019
Picked up from the book buffet. I'm always on the look out for wbn books and like to keep them travelling. This is what I said when I read another copy

Yay!!! Another book I would never have bought or picked up to read if I hadn't decided to challenge myself to reading books from the WBN lists every year. Fabulous true life story about some very brave men.
