    Let me begin by stating that I am a climber and have a desire for adventure sure, those might seem to go hand in hand, but how many climbers are willing to suffer in their thirst for adventure My suffering has been hardly that, but the limited hardship I ve endured has brought an appreciation for those who have set their sets higher, further afield or took on a challenge thought foolhardy

    When I described this book to a friend, he was upset that the POWs break back into the camp after climbing Mt Kenya That s not how an escape story is supposed to end But it s not an escape story it s a story about taking enormous risk in answer to one s inner freedom Benuzzi would be a better reader than writer of poetry the descriptive and narrative skill are not award winning But spirit of

    There s no way I could recommend this book highly enough Let me first disclose that memoirs about war or books about climbing don t interest me at all, but I flicked through the pages and noticed the clear and precise writing which is something I always enjoy I was soon hooked and knew I had to take it home since it was unlike anything I had expected Not only is it written amazingly well, the s

    What a magnificent little book I won t dwell on the feat itself, on which plenty of other reviewers have commented, other than to say that it is quite astounding I only wish to comment on the writing even without crediting his command of a foreign language, Benuzzi is incredibly gifted with words and has a wonderful eye for the humorous and sublime in life Take, for example, this theatrical passag

    DNF at just over 110 pages Interesting story and an amazing feat but I found the writing style dry and I wasn t invested.

    Benuzzi comes across as such a nice man, both in the POW camp and on the great escape with 2 companions toward the mountain, that he is rather seductive in his descriptions of the landscape and we can sympathize with the privations of their diminishing provisions.

    The author was a P.O.W in Kenya during WWII He stages an escape so that he can climb the second highest peak in Africa He knows that there is no chance he will make a permanent escape, so his plan is to just return back to the camp after his climb and deal with the repercussions It is an awesome story and I loved it.One of my favorite passages Never, I imagine, have mountaineers approached the mountain of their

    This is truly an amazing book That s because it isn t only a brilliantly written novel, with many breathtaking images vividly depicted in its pages It isn t either because the story is actually true, and three italians really did such a incredibly stupid and beautiful thing as escaping only for the sake of climbing the beautiful mountain they saw from their camp This is instead a book where the love for nature and
