How rare to find a true climber and explorer who can actually write! The two novel pairing reissued by the Mountaineers in single book, contrasts David Roberts’s writing styles in bold ways. Both were engaging and enthralling. However, one is a rapid recounting of a successful summit with a tragic ending, with less cerebral analysis, yet with delightful prose. You feel every bit of fear and emotion he feels - like you are dangling on the edge of the mountain with him. The other book is a more thoughtful, digested work of the tremendous difficulties of a long expedition and a love/hate relationship with the only other person with him for 42 days. Roberts’s musings are so brutally honest with emotion, disappointment and frustration. He captures the difficulty with his climbing partner vividly. The fear, exhaustion, exasperation and grief were palpable in these books. While many climbing books have a thrilling tale to recount, few are also brilliantly written.
