I've read many articles with speculations about what happened to the nine skiers and too many times government conspiracy theories and aliens and evil Mansi marauders are put forth as real theories. This book has none of that nonsense. Eichar has reconstructed events with utmost respect for the skiers and without personal speculation. The timeline is set out simply and neatly, with much information not found in internet articles. Some information is clearly different from what has become lore.
The chapters about Eichar's research are interesting, written in a humble tone and never too divergent from the main issue. He went to Russia, spoke with people who were involved, and visited the pass in winter.
Eichar's theory (shared with various experts) is plausible, sensible. Not one that insults the reader's intelligence. It also doesn't ruin the aura of mystery, horror, immensity (whatever you want to call it) that draws people to mysteries of this kind. It heightens it.
The only thing missing was good maps and diagrams of the pass and the scene. I couldn't find any outside images of exactly what I wanted to see either.

After hearing about the Dyatlov case on TV and watching a fictional movie about it I became fascinated with it. As someone who lives in the mountains (not Siberia but close enough) and has a lot of mountaineering friends I couldn't understand what had happened to this group. It made no sense and had several eerie pieces of evidence, like the one woman's missing tongue, that totally creeped me out. There was no explanation that could account for the strangeness of the evidence. Donnie Eichar does an amazing job of making you feel like you are in the Urals with him. He debunks the popular theories in a believable and logical way. His final explanation is absolutely brilliant and makes total sense. I also learned why people don't want to live next to wind farms which I never understood before. Completely entertaining and slightly educational too.

I've wondered about this expedition for years. This book does offer an explanation and a good one about what happened to these young people, off on a school trekking vacation; which is popular in their country. Well written, good suspense. These sorts of mysteries are open to many conclusions….similar to finding who was Jack the Ripper and if the book you are reading solves that question for you….then you are satisfied. I was very satisfied with this book. Not sure just as of yet if the mystery has been solved to my satisfaction.

It was an excellent read. The writer is very credible. It's probably better to read it in winter though, for the atmosphere.
It was good enough to pass on to a friend.

I actually bought this for a friend who had heard the author on a radio show. It's a well-researched investigation into an incredible mystery. Worth reading

I stumbled upon this incident just recently and was immediately sucked into the mystery surrounding the bizarre deaths of the Dyatlov hikers. I've enjoyed reading about the hilarious theories out there, including UFO encounter or Yeti attack. Donnie Eicher did an excellent job in laying out the final days of the hikers' lives and the subsequent efforts of the investigatiors and recovery team. Interlacing these two storylines with his own investigation made for a pretty exciting book; I had trouble putting it down. It was wise of Eicher to lay out the process of elimination before presenting his ultimate theory; failing which he might have come off as just another nut who has failed to do his or her research. His theory is a good one, and is clearly supported by our current understanding of this natural phenomenon that simply wasn't understood 45 years ago. I feel Eicher did the lead investigator justice in his inference that Tempalov did what he could with the limited power and understanding he had. What an absolutely frightening experience this must have been for these hikers. I hope friends and families are able to feel a little more at peace in knowing that the seemingly illogical actions of these young people were, ironically, the most logical ones they could have been expected to take in the circumstances.

This book....this had to be my favourite read of 2014! There are a load of different theories about what happened to this group but the conclusion that he comes to is far more terrifying, and probable, than any of the conspiracies that the tinfoil hat crowd has come up with. It's touching in places - one of Igor's books was found to have a picture of Lina tucked into it and you can't help but wonder what could have been if the expedition hadn't ended the way that it did. READ IT!!

Well-written book about a very interesting subject. Apart from the main subject matter, it provides very interesting background and perspective on what life was like in that part of the world at that time.
