did not like it

It's been a few years since I read this, so I don't really remember it very well. It's the kind of thing that I would never have picked up if I didn't have to read it for my sixth grade English class. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be inspirational, but I didn't feel very inspired. The ending was rather a disappointment as well. The whole motivation for it - climbing to the top of the mountain because his father had died trying - seemed a little bit ridiculous to me, especially since (view spoiler) Basically, whenever someone asks me what books I've read that I hated, this one immediately comes to mind. There was nothing about it that held my attention, the characters were unrealistic and uninteresting, and the whole motivation was a little bit stupid.
