[Jon Krakauer] Á Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster [yuri PDF] Ebook Epub Download å I ll be the first to admit that I m not the biggest fan of non fiction I prefer to listen to podcasts or interviews, rather than read straight up non fiction about a certain topic And as someone who isn t particularly interested in climbing or sports in general, this wouldn t be a book that I d normally read But I m so glad that I did.
It definitely reads like a memoir, since the author was present for the events of the story That made it a much palatable read for me, rather than a book about an event where the author does all the research but has no first hand experience of the thing However, after having read this I would definitely read anything else Krakauer has written or writes because he is such an amazing storyteller I was never bored reading this book He blends history and personal accounts into a gripping, harrowing, horrifying, fascinating story It s truly awful, but I co This is not a review I don t feel like writing a review for this book, but I feel like I should at least say something about it because I did enjoy it I mean, it did make me utter Jesus Christ out loud than one time, and I don t often talk to myself while I am reading a book I almost want to post a picture of a LOLcat with a caption that says This buk wuz gud, but I don t have one So These are a few things I learned from reading this book 1 If a person decides to climb Everest, they are likely to encounter dead bodies along the route up to the summit.
2 Lobuje, which is on the way to Everest Base Camp, is a place that overflows with human excrement While Krakauer was there in 1996, he wrote Huge stinking piles of human feces lay everywhere it was impossible not to walk in it Lovely Insert Want to get away from it all commercial here.
3 Wit A Bank Of Clouds Was Assembling On The Not So Distant Horizon, But Journalist Mountaineer Jon Krakauer, Standing On The Summit Of Mt Everest, Saw Nothing That Suggested That A Murderous Storm Was Bearing Down He Was Wrong The Storm, Which Claimed Five Lives And Left Countless Including Krakauer S In Guilt Ridden Disarray, Would Also Provide The Impetus For Into Thin Air, Krakauer S Epic Account Of The May Disaster i feel beyond guilty for finding so much fascination with what was the most horrific moment in krakauers life i am a terrible human, but i honestly couldnt put this down there is just something about krakauers writing that makes me think his grocery lists are equally alluring and knowing how personal this was for him made this book that much captivating for me i loved how this is formatted, the way the facts are presented, and how coherent the timeline and his commentary is just everything about this invites the reader in in such an informative and also highly emotionally way i truly cant imagine what i would have done or how i would currently feel if i was in his shoes but i am so grateful that he felt the desire to share and document this story so tragic, and yet so fascinating 4 stars Find all of my reviews atEverest has always been a magnet for kooks, publicity seekers, hopeless romantics, and others with a shaky hold on realityWelcome to one of Kelly s creepy obsessions Advance apologies this might get rambly Okay, so I m totally obsessed with all things Everest and CAN NOT WAIT to see the movie that details the same tragic events which are covered in this book even though just watching the preview in IMAX 3 D made me have diarrhea I have spent the past month watching EVERYTHING Everest related on Netflix and You Tube Note I highly recommend the television series Everest Beyond the Limit as well as Ultimate Survival Everest unfortunately the IMAX Everest documentary which was filmed during this fateful Note to self take climbing Everest off bucket list.
Utterly harrowing and propulsive I could not put this book down This is another book that details people s misguided quests to conquer nature to see nature as something to be conquered It s also another great cold weather read, to make you realize that, really, it s not so cold out after all.
This book suddenly became very relevant no less than TEN climbers have died this week 18 25 May 2019 on Everest The reason for this horrible turn of events is given as inexperienced guides leading inexperienced climbers combined with the usual weather restrictions leading to these ghastly insane queueing situations Yes, that s the top of the highest mountain in the world Anyway, original review follows TEENAGE HAIR KISSING BOOK DEFACERSThis is the most defaced book I ever read It must have been used in a school at one point Up to page 69 there are two different people highlighting passages in pink and green but then in the margins, suddenly there is this Katie is Eric s fave, to bad for him, he is silly, I hope he s a good kisserAnd then on page 77, which o RELEASE THE KRAKAUER seriously, it is time to just raze everest and be done with it already i mean, it s big and impressive but it is just taking up all this room and killing people so why do we even need it any can t we just get over it really, i think it has reached its peak and is all downhill from here.
shameless punning aside.
so this started out as an article that KRAKAUER was asked to write for outside magazine about the commercialization of everest it should embarrass us that something that costs 75,000 dollars to even attempt even has the potential to become commercialized for example i just balked at shelling out 7.
17 for the sandwich i am eating and like everest, it is kind of crappy how misplaced is our spending for fifty bucks a toe, i will chop yours right off and you can pretend you climbed everest and had a gay old time everyone wins but there are purists wh
