    " Good read if you like survival stuff like I do "

    " This is a collection of stories from various K2 and Everest books. Some of the excerpts where pretty good, but some felt incomplete. I think I'd much rather read the original books themselves. So I guess this is a good way to get a sampler and see which books you'd want to read in full. "

    " I love survival stories. The only problem with this series is that they are only short-stories, so they leave you yearning for more. They don't explain what happens to the hikers in the end or even give much context. A bit frustrating. That is the only reason it didn't get 5 stars. "

    " I didn't finish this book. Found it a bit of a chore to get through. "

    " Be prepared for disaster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 11/24/2008

    " for some reason i really like mountaineering/climbing/survival stories, and this is a cool anthology of a bunch of 'em. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 8/1/2008

    " Combo of short stories. Some good, some okay. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 7/17/2008

    " Loved the impossible tales of survival. Makes my lab life seem so ordinary and mundane. Makes me want to go climb something big. Something far away from Georgia. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abram | 7/7/2008

    " This book has some of the most well know mountaineering stories combined into one exciting read. If you are interested in man versus mountain this will give you a good dose. Alas the book carries the name Krakauer and one must suspect foul play. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 6/25/2008

    " A bunch of different stories that are all pretty dang good. He does a great job of telling more then just the adventure by going into a bit of history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 2/24/2008

    " This book was full of CRAZY stories of how people survived or others who did not survive climbs of various peaks around the world. It was intense. I had to put it down and remember to breathe! "
