    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyEver since reading Jon Krakauer's 'Into Thin Air' I have been very interested in Mount Everest literature especially books recounting the events of the 1996 disasterLene Gammelgaard was a member of Scott Fischer's Mountain Madness expedition and survived the storm that claimed the lives of Fischer and fellow expedition leader Rob Hall as well as clients Doug Hansen and Yasuko Namba She was also the first out of the gate with a book recounting her experienceUnfortunately it's a terrible book It mostly reads like a series of diary entries Its main flaw is how self centered Gammelgaard is Much of the book is Gammelgaard's internal dialogue concerning her preparations and it's just not compelling reading at all She's rightly concerned as to whether or not she will make the summit Who wouldn't be But that do

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyAlthough I tremendously enjoy reading about the 1996 Mt Everest tragedy I didn't enjoy this account nearly as much as the books by Jon Krakauer and Anatoli Boukreev I felt it was poorly written and very disjointed Also it really wasnt so much about the expedition as it was about Lene's own personal climb and her disappointment at not being able to climb without oxygenThe tone of the book seems very self congratulatory She tells readers many times how she is one of the strongest fastest climbers and how their team is so much stronger than any other team on the mountainI also was very sad that she completely ignored relating any of

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyThe author is one of the most self obsessed whiny and irritating climbers that I've ever had the misfortune to read about Yes I get that it is about her journey but seriously I got tired of reading how wonderful she was how superior to everyone she was You get the feeling that she believed she could have stopped everyone dying in the disaster if she was in charge She barely talks about the death all around her preferring to be critical of other climbers and whining about not being the centre o

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyHorrible book Bad writer or translator judgemental and annoying person This book proves to me that not everyone has a book in them even if they are part of something incredible like the 1996 Everest season

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyThis book is a solid 45 stars I could not give five stars because it was written too concisely and it seemed sometimes with too much sentiment with the flowery new age psycho babble and not enough sentiment with the real life drama that unfolded I give Lene much kudos for her title of first Dane woman to summit but toward the e

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyThis book is nothing like Into Thin Air which was a really good gripping tale of the Everest Tragedy It is a first hand account but is written like a journal or diary It does provide an interesting itinerary of her trip and what she was going through However it doesn't focus on much else She mentions some of the other climbers and the leader Scott but mostly in a very superficial m

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyI think i might be a bit biased towards Krakauer's Into Thin Air perhaps because that is the account of the Everest tragedy i read first perhaps because i see him as objective but this is still a compelling read as i find most Everest accounts And who knows what is closest to the truth we all have our own reconstructed memories and memories can be nothing else

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyFor Everest completists Not terrible but no analysis of the tragedy and scarcely even any acknowledgment of the deaths outside her own team except in footnotes The book really could use an epilogue should be like 25 stars

    Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest Tragedy Read & Download ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Climbing High A Woman's Account of Surviving the Everest TragedyThe author Lene Gammelgaard begins the book with a foreword about what is to come If you are not aware I wasn’t except for hearing about it from my wife who has read this book and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer in May of 1996 there was a sudden snowstorm on Mount Everest that caught several expeditions by surprise and resulted in the deaths of 8 people in two days So you know at the beginning of the book that this is going to end in a tragedy if the title alone was not enough De
