I liked his writing, and even his egotistical perspective. I loved reading about his journeys, and alternating between irritation with his decisions and fascination with his unbounded sense of adventure. He's cocky, rough around the edges, and not looking for a future. He doesn't blame anyone but himself for his accident.

This book also drove me crazy. I was suddenly unsatisfied with my life and itching to explore the world, climb mountains, and do something physically exhausting every day. But

127 hours is a startling story based on a true story. It is set in the blue john canyons. The book is about a man named Aron Ralstone who goes hiking in the blue john canyons and he stands on a boulder. The boulder falls, and he falls down with a boulder between two ledges. He gets his arm trapped between the ledge and the boulder. Unable to move his arm to call for help, Aron is in an extremely difficult situation. Will Aron be able to survive or will he be trapped there until his death?

This is a truly inspiring book!. It is not just a book about "the man that cut his arm off", it's a book about life, friends, family, the wilderness, adventure, climbing, snow sports, biology, disability, spirituality, and the media's reaction to one man's experience. Aaron's reflections on his life as he experienced them over his time in the canyon works very well as a narrative device to keep the tension whilst exploring his thoughts. His exit from the boulder, despite being built-up for so lo ...more

127 Hours was an amazing book! Main character, Aron Ralston is on for an adventure in Utah's Canyonlands National Park. Throughout Aron's adventure, he sees a lot of cool stuff and the scenery is beautiful. Aron is hiking through the canyons until, a giant rock gets unattached and it falls on his arm. Aron is stuck with a giant rock on his arm for 6 straight days, and he is running out of water and food. What will Aron Do? You will have to read to find out! I rated this book 3 stars out of 5 bec ...more

If you enjoyed the movie , you'll love all the detail and self reflection and think about how choices you make in your own life can become that rock waiting to fall and potentially trap you
I loved so many quotes in this book-- it doesn't have to be fun to be fun
I also seriously contemplated how tough I could be in that kind of situation and could I do what it took to survive.
There are a lot of long chapters dedicated to past hiking adventures that can be skipped if you are only interested in the
Discusses the true story of adventurer Aron ralston, who is trapped under a chock stone for 127, miraculously surviving. This is an inspiring story of survival, intertwined with the life story of Aron & the moments of his mortality. For someone not interested in the outdoors this may be a bit technical however I enjoyed the book

A man with a liking for extreme sports gets his hand and lower arm trapped between 2 rocks and this story tells of his dilemma on how to get out of his predicament with limited resources and no help!
Very descriptive and intense in places.
A really good read but perhaps not for the faint hearted
127 hours is quite morbid, but it draws me in. I found the Script online and read it in a few hours as opposed to doing homework. I have now read the book 127hours, watched the movie, and read the movie script. I think it's time to move on.... Farewell Aaron Ralston!

127 hours! What a great film but it is even better in the book because it explains what it was like from Aron ralstons perspective. It makes you realise how much of and amazing,extroidnairy man Aron Ralston is.

What a read. I quickly rushed past the squeamish section. Aron Ralston certainly is an awesome guy to have come out of this journey still with his adventurous drive still in tact. Amazing!!!
excellent book - nearly a 5 star but rambles a bit throughout the middle when he's describing previous adventures. What an ending though!! Must see the movie now...

this book was really scary and out of it how he had to cut his arm off but it is very impressive how he survives by drinking his own urine???
Had my heart in my mouth early on as you know something dramtic is going to happen....... once it does, I have settled into a good read :)
It's the goods, pretty heavy storyline because you know it's real so yeahhhhh.
