A history of Mount Everest expedition is intertwined with the disastrous expedition the author was a part of, during which five members were killed by a hurricane-strength blizzard. When Jon Krakauer reached the summit of Mt. Everest in the early afternoon of May 10, 1996, he hadn't slept in fifty-seven hours and was reeling from the brain-altering effects of oxygen depletion. As he turned to begin his long, dangerous descent from 29,028 feet, twenty other climbers were still pushing doggedly toward the top. No one had noticed that the sky had begun to fill with clouds. Six hours later and 3,000 feet lower, in 70-knot winds and blinding snow, Krakauer collapsed in his tent, freezing, hallucinating from exhaustion and hypoxia, but safe. The following morning he learned that six of his fellow climbers hadn't made it back to their camp and were in a desperate struggle for their lives. When the storm finally passed, five of them would be dead, and the sixth so horribly frostbitten that his right hand would have to be amputated. Krakauer examines what it is about Everest that has compelled so many people - including himself - to throw caution to the wind, ignore the concerns of loved ones, and willingly subject themselves to such risk, hardship, and expense. Written with emotional clarity and supported by his unimpeachable reporting, Krakauer's eye-witness account of what happened on the roof of the world is a singular achievement.… (més)

    The Climb: Tragic Ambitions on Everest de Anatoli Boukreev (marzipanz, oregonobsessionz, coclimber, bluepiano)
    marzipanz: It may seem like an obvious recommendation, but I would really urge everybody to read The Climb instead of or in addition to Into Thin Air. It really sheds a completely new light on some of what Krakauer writes, and - to me - seemed a far more convincing account of some of the events.… (més)
    oregonobsessionz: While The Climb is not an easy read like Into Thin Air, it does provide a different perspective on the disaster, and answers some of Krakauer's criticisms of Boukreev's actions.
    bluepiano: I may be the only reader of Krakauer's book who thought Boukreev came across as a hero in it. The Climb is a heartening reminder that experience, intelligence, and calm can be the makings of heroism, and it's quite interesting as well.

I think this book was probably pretty good, but I read it at the wrong time. Less than a month after his book of articles (Eiger Dreams) which included some of the same background information on Everest and mountain climbing - so don't read these two books while you can still remember anything substantive about the other.

Anyway, Krakauer is trying to be as objective as possible on the events of the 1996 Everest disaster while realizing that he needs to sell his writing, cannot remove all of his biases due to being right in the middle of the disaster, and several key points of view being lost when people died between the summit and camp 4. I don't know that I agree with all of his conclusions on what should have happened (whatever was happening with Hall and Hansen still seems really flimsy to me, but there's really no way to find any further truths), especially with other teams that seemed standoffish, such as the South Africans.

The rebuttal to Boukreev and DeWalt's the Climb at the end of the edition I read was interesting. It's even further removed from the disaster, and adds even more outside information to what was going on. It also shows some of the behind-the-scenes contentions that Krakauer was pretty careful to leave out in the main text.

Anyway, Krakauer's still a great writer, so his prose is great to read. I just got bogged down in the minutiae, I think. But I'm also not trying to expunge my guilt or tell the truth while not ruining peoples' professional and moral integrity, so that's fine.

I still have no plans to do extreme mountain climbing.

One of the most satisfying non-fiction books I've ever read. What raises this book to the top of the adventure/memoir genre is that Krakauer is a talented writer who happened to be a witness and participant to extraordinary events at the top of Mt. Everest. Krakauer and all the other climbers who contributed their recollections of that unprecedentedly lethal fatal climbing season were all subject to relative degrees of oxygen deprivation at the time--so the story is built of the at times contradictory reports of unreliable narrators, much like a modernist novel.

Even though I ultimately knew the outcome, I still found it hard to stop reading this book. Everest (and any mountain in a similar altitude) is powerful and perilous: a captivating combination. ( )

Summiting Mt. Everest in 1996 as told by John. Non-Fiction. Good read, very interesting insight on what it takes to climb Everest. There are other books that are told from the perspective from other climbers. John went up as a journalist and wrote an article while climbing so I expect this would be the most detailed event, he attempted to be non-bias. Made into a movie called "Everest". Beck wrote "Left for Dead: My Journey Home from Everest" (2000) who was part of the group that survived. Anatoli Boukreev wrote "The Climb" after being put in a negative light in John's book. Movie that was made during this book was called Everest (1998) and shot in IMAX

An experienced climber himself, Mr. Krakauer gives us both a tactile appreciation of the dangerous allure of mountaineering and a compelling chronicle of the bad luck, bad judgment and doomed heroism that led to the deaths of his climbing companions.
 
it is impossible to finish this book unmoved and impossible to forget for a moment that its author would have given anything not to have to write it.

Getting to the top of any given mountain was considered much less important than how one got there: prestige was earned by tackling the most unforgiving routes with minimal equipment, in the boldest style imaginable. John Krakauer
