Täitsa ok oli, kuni nad raamatu lõpus surmkindlalt üritasid mulle väita, et laviin oli selles 100% süüdi.... Ühel tšikil ei olnud ei silmi, keelt ega vahelihast..... Laviin on üks tugevamatest teooriatest aga kindlasti mitte absoluutne tõde
Also julge neist panna ufo selle raamatu kaanele ja siis seda mainida ainult ühe sõnaga xd
A difficult one. I assume it was initially written in another language (Russian?) because it reads unnaturally, as if it has just gone through Google translate rather than a formal translation process.

An interesting book and useful collection of all the evidence and statements to do with the Dyatlov Pass mystery. However, I don't understand why in the prologue it takes pains to say that the book will merely record the evidence and the general theories as to what happened and allow the reader to

La collezione di libri sulla tragedia del gruppo di Dyatlov prosegue. I dati sono sempre gli stessi, ma l'approccio e la presentazione varia di volta in volta.
Lasciando da parte tutto quello che può essere collegato alla fantasia (yeti, alieni, ecc) o teorie al limite della fantascienza (infrasuoni e simili), Irina Lobatcheva inserisce estratti dai file dell'indagine, con interviste e testimonianze, articoli di giornali e lo stato delle cose di quella notte Urali.

Usual suspects

It was nature. The author presents several suspected theories and then comes out with the most obvious. Nature. Fine. I could do the same if I take a huge leap of faith and ignore evidence that doesn't fit my theory. Please take into account all the evidence. Facts are facts. One is not allowed to pick and choose which ones they will adhere to. Nice try but, like every other explanation, wide of the mark.

If you want to read something that will haunt you, look into the Dyatlov Pass incident. It isn't just that the events are creepy--nine healthy young people dying under mysterious circumstances while skiing in the Urals. What's even spookier is that no theory to date about what happened out there manages to cover all the known facts.

This book on the subject has a number of flaws. The translation has some issues (at several points, the authors speak of a "postcard" when the context clearly indica

This book takes a fairly good look at Dyatlov Pass, but is unnecessarily repetitive. I understand the authors want to be as comprehensive as possible but instead of summarizing an individual's account, they instead choose to include lengthy text, often only having one discernible difference than the previous one. This bogs the book down and I found myself skimming over sections. Overall though, a good source that provides facts and theories about the incident. ...more

Very interesting. Good book I would recommend. Hard to keep up with wished they would have stuck to first names or last names not both. I agree with authors on what happened. To much was made our of the footprints which lead to the conspiracy theories.

More theories on how this 1959 tragedy happened. They posit the theory that it was the CIA which adds to the mystery.
