No Way Down Life and Death on K2

review ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ñ Graham Bowley Graham Bowley Ñ 8 read & download No Way Down Life and Death on K2 summary ì eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ned account of the true brutality of climbing K2 where heroes emerge and egos are stripped down and the only thing achieving immortality is the cold ruthless mountain” Norman Ollestad author of Crazy for the StormIn the tradition of Into Thin Air and Touching the Void No Way Down by New York Times reporter Graham Bowley is the harrowing account of the worst mounta. This book presents an explanation of the tragedy that occurred on K2 in 2008 during which eleven people died The author provides an unbiased account of what took place who did what and why Bowley exposes the many factors involved including lack of communication delays in the ascent uestionable judgments and bad luck Once oxygen deprivation to the brain is added to the mix it became the proverbial recipe for disasterThe human drive to conuer conditions of extreme cold fascinates me to explore to test the limits of endurance to prove it can be done This book delivers on that score Where it falls short is in presentation such as numerous typos lack of proper punctuation and segments that appear to be poor English translations from another language These annoyances detracted significantly from my reading experience and should have been caught before publishing I think any book on mountaineering benefits from the author having been there done that This is of a factual account which was fine but I was expecting something akin to Jon Krakauer s Into Thin Air This book suffers by comparison Recommended to readers who want to understand why mountaineering tragedies occur in hope of preventing them in the future

summary No Way Down Life and Death on K2

review ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ñ Graham Bowley Graham Bowley Ñ 8 read & download No Way Down Life and Death on K2 summary ì eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF In climbing disaster on K2 second to Everest in height but second to no peak in terms of danger From tragic deaths to unbelievable stories of heroism and survival No Way Down is an amazing feat of storytelling and adventure writing and in the words of explorer and author Sir Ranulph Fiennes “the closest you can come to being on the summit of K2 on that fateful day?. It is hard not to compare this book to Into Thin Air by Jon Krakuaer However there are some noticeable differences which I believe make this book a pleasurable read The latter spent a far greater number of pages detailing the rich cultural history of Everest and the individuals who climbed it This book propels the reader or less straight into the action and although there are segments which are dedicated to the history of K2 this in itself often provides the same enthralling read as the main story itself In the same vein Into Thin Air slowly builds to a climactic and tragic finale All The Way Down provides a steady stream of adrenalin fuelled excitement or less throughout the entire textIt could be argued that some of the events and emotional aspects which are written are spurious in their accuracy This would be a justifiable charge However I believe the book is a far gripping read as a result that Bowley has attempted to strike a balance between drama and accuracy and that he has achieved this well bearing in mind the difficulties which always will be present when trying to recollect events which occurred at such high altitude and in such life threatening circumstances Also without these emotional aspects accurate or otherwise the book would simply read like a dry textbook stating the facts This would be far less readable and therefore the emotions of those involved play a large part in ensuring that the readers attention is maintainedThe book conveyed the tragic loss which one would feel were they actually climbing along with the mountaineers Into Thin Air lacks details and therefore loses that sense of intimacy and immediacy which No Way Down possesses I definitely preferred this to its predecessor and my personal opinion is that it is a must for any mountaineering enthusiast or indeed anyone who enjoys reading about mountaineering enthusiasts
