Read in January, 2007

Aron Ralston's account of his ordeal in the desert stuck in a rock crevice makes for gripping reading. Unintentionally, the book also reveals the character of this young man, as he risks not only his own life, but the life of his friends and those who have to rescue him--again and again. He comes across as self indulgent and egoistic, and not particularly admirable or likable. He is ready to throw away his friendships and love interests and to abuse his family's love--just to climb mountains.
