Jon Krakauer's acclaimed account of a disastrous expedition on Mt Everest

Fakta

Anmeldelser

«A harrowing tale of the perils of high-altitude climbing, a story of bad luck and worse judgment and of heartbreaking heroism.»

People

«Krakauer is an extremely gifted storyteller as well as a relentlessly honest and even-handed journalist, the story is riveting and wonderfully complex in its own right . . .To call the book an adventure saga seems not to recognize that it is also a deeply thoughtful and finely wrought philosophical examination of the self.»

Elle

«<i>Into Thin Air</i> ranks among the great adventure books of all time.»

Wall Street Journal

«This is a great book, among the best ever on mountaineering. Gracefully and efficiently written, carefully researched, and actually lived by its narrator.»

Washington Post

«[Krakauer] has produced a narrative that is both meticulously researched and deftly constructed.»

, New York Times Book Review
