I‘m going with a pick, although that feels generous. I read it quickly, and I did enjoy it...but I don‘t have the 5 star love for this book that everyone else seems to have. I enjoy unlikeable characters, so Maurice wasn‘t the issue for me. It was just a bit underwhelming following The Heart‘s Invisible Furies.

Rush: A Novel | Lisa Patton
post image
Mehso-so

Told from three perspectives, this novel explores themes of racism, tradition, and family relationships. The writing is solid and each voice is unique. It has a lot of heart and would make for good discussion; however, it‘s just a bit too syrupy sweet/neat and tidy for my taste. It‘s not a pick for me personally, but it‘s a good book that I think many will enjoy.

Purrfectpages Yes! The syrupy way things tied so neatly together irked me too. 9mo

The Climb: Tragic Ambitions on Everest | Anatoli Boukreev, G. Weston DeWalt

While this wasn‘t nearly as compelling as Krakauer‘s Into Thin Air, I still enjoyed learning about the 1996 Everest tragedy from Anatoli Boukreev‘s perspective.

“These are all small pieces, like shards of colored glass in a kaleidoscope; I spin and combine them to make a glowing, shifting picture. But they are finite in number. I cannot know my mother as others know their parents - I will never have an adult conversation with her.”

Perry‘s memoir about her mother‘s murder is heartbreaking and ugly, but it‘s also a lovely tribute to her mother‘s life and their relationship. An easy 5 stars.

I knew nothing about mountain climbing, and cared nothing about mountain climbing...and then I read this book. I think my friends and family are tired of hearing me talk about Everest. 😬 Krakauer‘s account of the 1996 Everest disaster is fascinating and utterly absorbing, and I can‘t stop thinking about the men and women who are brave enough to climb to the highest point on Earth.

Joy0201 I got Everest obsessed after reading this. 11mo
bookandcat 🎉🎉🎉🎉 amazing job! I totally agree with you and with @Joy0201 it definitely makes one Everest obsessed. Btw, the movie Everest basically covers the span of this book - pretty cool to see the actual sites. I also looked up videos on YouTube of the Khumu Icefall and good Lord it looks so scary! 11mo
Thousand-Lives @bookandcat I just checked the movie Everest out from the library yesterday! 😂 Now off to watch these YouTube videos you speak of...🤣 11mo
Thousand-Lives @Joy0201 Yes I‘m completely obsessed still! I just started listening to The Climb because I‘m not ready to let Everest go just yet! 11mo
