Everest Rising Paperback – November 5, 2016
|New from||Used from|
"Everest Rising is a tour-de-force- dazzling, thought-provoking, and packed with a kaleidoscope of brilliant images. Matt Kambic has produced a modern classic, certain to keep readers on the edge of their seats. His dramatic writing and keen story-telling skills are as potent as the secrets that burst forth from the book's pages." --Ken Gormley, New York Times bestselling author "Shades of Jurassic Park... Matt Kambic combines lean prose, vividly imagined characters, and a dramatic Himalayan setting to render a story that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping. If you care about the possibilities inherent in this Earth as much as the author does, you owe yourself this fast-paced yet philosophically astute read." --Ben Wecht, Forensic Science Educator and co-author, Cause of Death and Grave Secrets "Everest Rising is a compelling read from the very first page. The book is more than just a sci-fi thriller; it explores our relationships to others and to the earth itself. Questions spin in one's head after the final page-what is our responsibility to the earth? Can it be simply defined? I think the concept for the novel is brilliant." --Pete Niederberger, International Civil Engineer, Author, In My Fathers Steps "The plot led me on at a fast pace-a great thriller. The mix of science and philosophy worked. It also evoked memories of the Khumbu region, where I have traveled myself and seen the wonders of Everest. The author did a good job of revealing the character of the Nepalese in the story. I recommend this book." --Liz Wedderburn, PhD, Glasgow University, Faculty of Science

I really can’t add any more accolades or perspective that the other reviewers have already posted.
Best that I can tell, the story/concept is a unique idea.
Well done Mr. Kambic!
