One can relate to and share in Simon's experiences on these great adventures. A very good read without being bogged down in too much technical jargon.
The Best so far! March 11 2012
By Jackie W - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have read both of Simon's other books and this one, is the best BY far! It is an excellent mixture of climbing adventures in obscure places,family life, and wry observations of our increasingly complex communications driven world. The book's strength lies in the way Simon manages to marry these all up. One minute you feel ensconsed in a snowy vast and beautiful wilderness, and then you have an anecdote about satellite phones and boilers breaking down! Very human, very warm and very funny, and well observed.
Even if you have never stepped foot upon a mountainside, you will love this book; and chuckle at Simon's observations of life in our instant communication driven world. The contrast of wilderness,and personal shines through. He has captured the balance of becoming a parent,and at the same time remaining true to himself, and family with sincerity. His quest for both discovery and zest for life, sustains this book and shines through. I found it an uplifting and invigorating read, mixed with some fine benchmarks for us to hang on to in this increasingly complex world.
