    I first read this 30 years ago and re read it whilst trekking to K2 basecamp A sad reminder of the fragile life of mountaineers, but providing an insight into what drives them to take such risks.

    A story of obsessionA good read part biography and part a story of the selfish obsession that is Himalayan mountaineering Recommended for all armchair adventurers

    Brill to read a great mountaineering book by a female, and one that often gets down and dirty in a mountaineering sense She was an ordinary person who did extraordinary things Very enjoyable read and a memorable record of this amazing life This book should inspire others.

    Interesting climbing memoir, made particularly poignant in the edition I read by the account of her death on K2 She went into some details that I feel are often glossed over in these books, regarding how the human body fares at altitude.

    I read this years ago and enjoyed it As I recall it was quite liberal with the gory details of mountaineering I also remember the shock as the author s narrative ended to be replaced by the reports of her death and the impact it had on her family Touching, harrowing and very interesting.

    Tullis told a wonderful story I found it hard to put the book down between readings She wove her own experiences into a story full of wonderful successes and characters The last chapter was quite a shock in comparison to the rest of the book and I feel a deep sadness upon its completion.
