Although this story could be interesting, it is more a catalog of mind numbing details of the expedition plodding around Nepal and Tibet. The lists of towns and villages they visit, and every rock, crag, valley and summit are presented in a never ending litany but there are no decent maps or any way to get a real sense of where they're going (the two maps at the back are worthless ).
Anyone with a detailed knowledge of the geography of the Himalayas and Mt Everest would probably enjoy this, but for the casual reader it's really tedious. More editing and more maps would be a vast improvement.

I am about one fourth or so through this book and not sure I will coninue. This could be the most tedious work I have ever read. When does the climbing start?

I love Wade Davis' writing. I've never listened to any of his books, only read them, and when I discovered " Into the Silence" I was very excited. Maybe it is me but , 2 disks into listening to this book I had to stop. It may be the accent but nothing the reader says sticks. I have to listen to it three times in order to get it. The reader is a bit of a mono-tone and sadly I am will not be able to listen all the way through. Guess it is back to reading.
