Ed I have this as an audio book. I think I will try and find it and read it next since you rated it so high. Ed.

Michelle I read this years ago and LOVED it. At that time, I rarely read non-fiction but it came very highly recommended, so I tried it. I was hooked, and I know next to nothing about mountain climbing. The story was riveting and you had to keep turning the pages to see what would happen next, all the while thinking this is actually a true account.

Carl I started and finished this book in May 2008, while on a tour in China. The updated prologue is very interesting as it discusses the dialog between this author and the one of a competing book with a very different perspective.
Having read Into the Wild, which I discovered while in Alaska, I bought all of Krakauer's books. Under the Banner of Heaven will probably be my next Krakauer read.

Brian P Martin I liked "Into Thin Air". Krakauer has you glued to your seat.

message 5: by Leo (new) - rated it 5 stars

Leo Ovidiu A colegue of mine said when she has read my revision of the book: "God! Whatta book! I was terrified only by reading the revision." That's how good this book is!

Sadie Carrieri I read this book years ago and was totally absorbed with it. It took me by surprise and I did not want to put it down.
