An incredible story but when it comes to the writing I'd point you in the direction of Krakauer's "Into Thin Air" much sooner than to "Into the Void." Again, a crazy tale of events and an amazing climb for a 22 and 25 year old to accomplish, but the writing wasn't great. I feel like his publisher told him to push it out to 200 words.

One of my go to books for action, drama, grit. You will never complain about being uncomfortable or tired again. The movie is good too.
