Rideout's depiction of George Mallory's pioneer ascent up Everest allows readers to feel the thrill of the climb without paying the agonizing cost of the reality I felt the chill settle in my own bones as the oxygen thinned and the timing became critical However whole chapters should have been cut The adrenaline of the expedition was interrupted by the chapters which switched the scene to Mallory's melancholy and boring wife waiting in London I began to skip those chapters entirely and lost nothing The only place Ruth's story is relevant is at the conclusion of the novel Even novice climbers know that less is often for what you choose to pack on a climb

Llory departs on his third expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest Left behind in Cambridge George’s young wife Ruth along with the rest of a war ravaged England anticipates news they Above. I met the author of this book at en event last year and was thrilled to see it out in stores and with such a beautiful cover treatment I loved the dual narrative of the book which alternated between an ill fated climbing expedition by George Mallory and his team and a day in the life of his wife Ruth who is waiting for his return with their three children I was worried I wouldn't enjoy the George sections because Mountain climbing and traditional adventure stories do not interest me in any way However the trip is just as much about the conflict and group dynamics among the men who are climbing together as it is about the incredibly harsh and unwelcoming Mount Everest The psychological drama is fascinating particularly as they get closer tot he summit and exhaustion starvation and the high altitudes start to play games with the men's sanityI adored Ruth and her uiet struggle and Rideout's portrayal of the children and how they each miss their father and act out at their mother felt heart breakingly accurate More than an adventure story or piece of historical fiction this felt like a love story in the grandest tradition romantic sensual imperfect and ultimately thwarted Already Rideout feels like a seasoned and accomplished writer an artist so at ease with language that this could have been her fifth or tenth novel Look out for this during award season

Above All Things“Tell me the story of Everest” she said a fervent smile sweeping across her face creasing the corners of her eyes “Tell me about this mountain that’s stealing you away from me” In George Ma. England 1924 After two failed expeditions “for good or ill it was his name that had become synonymous with Everest” Now a new team is preparing for the third time George Mallory a British explorer promised his wife that he was done But what if they summit “his” mountain without him After many sleepless nights when he receives his final invitation to join the team he doesn’t hesitate to make the decisionI enjoyed the team despite the fact that they didn’t seem to be best suited in characters especially to be heading for such dangerous expedition The team included a naturalist Noel Odell who was constantly staring at his feet in search for fossils He was trying to prove that the highest peak in the world was once at the bottom of the ocean “Each member of the expedition had his role to perform John Noel documented everything” taking pictures in hopes of securing his own fameThe expedition is intertwined with the voice of George’s wife She reveals how they’ve met and how things progressed in their marriage At first I enjoyed her voice But there are constant thoughts of worries which is understandable but it was making the story less and less interesting The same was happening with the expedition once it was explained who was who then the story was slowly progressing On the Everest George drifts with his thoughts to his childhood or some past events It was interesting to get to know him better through those glimpses but at the same time I started drifting from the story 35 stars The first third of the story is fairly interesting and I greatly appreciate stories as this one based on true heroes The writing is certainly of a talented writer but the pace for most of the time is slow I wished the characters that were involved in the expedition were better developed as they seemed pretty interesting PS Kudos to the cover designer This is the most stand out cover I have ever seen
