    " 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. "
