really liked it

The book started off slowly, covering Ralston's misadventures that he pondered while trapped in Blue John Canyon. As the book progressed, his background became more important. Ralston was seemingly on a collision course with that boulder his entire life. By the end, I couldn't put the book down. I like this book because it makes you think about how you would react if you were ever in Ralston's shoes.

It is cool because he is a Colorado mountaineer from down the road and I can relate having been on a handful of the same adventures in the mountains here that he recounts while he is slowly dying in the canyon..."
