Into Thin Air

into thin airBy Jon Krakauer (Paperback: £8.99)

A recent book group choice. This book is the true story of a 24-hour period on Everest, when members of three separate expeditions were caught in a storm and faced a battle against hurricane-force winds, exposure, and the effects of altitude. I found it to be a compelling and facinating read and, ultimately, a very moving and sobering tale.
