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.… (mais)

    The Climb: Tragic Ambitions on Everest por 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.… (mais)
    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.

This is a book that I’ve wanted to read for a long time. I’ve read Jon Krakauer before and knew he had an easy, enjoyable style of writing. I expected this to be a gripping story, but I had no idea exactly how enthralling it would be.

Let me start by saying that I also had no idea how dangerous it is to climb Mount Everest. Difficult, yes, but when actually presented with the statistics (and these are out of date – they don’t include several subsequent tragedies) I was absolutely shocked. That tourists, as in, not professional mountain climbers, would continue to pay upwards of $65,000 apiece to be led into such a deadly situation leaves me speechless. Not speechless enough to not find the words to tell my husband that I am no longer okay with him climbing Everest, but I had few words beyond that.

The book explores Krakauer’s firsthand account of a climb during the deadly 1996 season, during which several of his fellow climbers and guides, among others, lost their lives. After reading his story it is clear how easily (and how often) tragedy strikes on this mountain. There are no rescue missions to the top of Mount Everest. You are literally hiking at the altitude that jets fly, under what are severe conditions at best.

I can’t remember ever reading a nonfiction book that kept me in such a state of suspense before. It almost reads like fiction, and like a horror story, it’s scary. I could not put it down. Five stars. ( )

This book was really good. It is pretty sad in many ways but amazing in other ways...a great read but emotionally hard for me. I am glad that I finished this book before he wrote Under the Banner of Heaven. My disappointment was very bitter when I found out he had written this book. It is a terrible book the author just finished about the fundamentalists of the LDS faith. He claims that this book is more about the sects but he does a good job trashing the LDS Church too. I think it is clear that he didn't speak to many actual momrons and tossed in his political and person views. When someone can write that stuff so unjustly it does make me question what kind of a person he really is. I think in the end he will feel much more guilt about this book than what happened on Mt. Everest and it will probably prevent me from reading any of his other books. ( )

In the spring of 1996, freelance journalist Jon Krakauer is chosen to join a expedition of paying guests who are climbing up to the summit of Mt. Everest. As an experienced mountaineer, he knows that the trek up the world's tallest mountain will be difficult and dangerous, but even he doesn't seem prepared for the huge physical and mental toll it takes on him and his fellow climbers. Then, an unexpected blizzard on the mountain makes everything even worse. Krakauer is left with the haunting feeling that he could have done more to save others’ lives.

Although I was a little bogged down by the mountaineering jargon and large cast of characters, I found reading this sad, instructive, engrossing account of a doomed expedition very helpful. I have a whole new appreciation for the warmth and oxygen available at lower altitudes. ( )

Amazing. A great author and a gripping story. ( )

Wow. Mountain climbing fascinates me, Everest fascinates me, disasters fascinate me. I am not a climber so the idea of tackling these mountains - especially Everest - is so compelling. I only want to be an armchair traveler to a place like this and I feel that those people that can go there in person and not just in spirit are a pretty impressive bunch.

The movie is coming out soon so I read this book to be prepared. Who lives? Who doesn't make it? I remember this disaster happening but it was fairly vague in my mind and now, of course, there have been more recent tragedies.

I did not want to put this book down. It reads like a magazine article to some extent. Jon also seems to be under a black cloud of premonition throughout the entire expedition like he knew something bad was going to happen. I'm not sure if that was hindsight and that's how he has had to write this or if it really was apparent there were things going seriously wrong. Regardless of the journalistic prose and the obvious ending, it was a page turner.

I never realized how much this messed Jon Krakauer up until I read the introduction. Surviving a disaster that many people did not live through must be horrifying. Coming home and having to write about this and facing all the public backlash would be tough. I didn't realize that all of the survivors ended up having to deal with negative repercussions for being on this expedition and also for being written about by Jon.

I've read a little bit about Malory and now I'm off to read more about Everest - learning more about the mountain and about this disaster in particular.

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
