If there's one book you must read... Week #4

Book #4 'The real-life thriller' -- Touching the Void by Joe Simpson

Chosen by my friend Lucie.

What Lucie says: 'It's hard to believe a professional mountain-climber could have such a talent for writing. This book really highlights the difficulties of friendship in a life or death situation, as well as the power of human perseverance and courage. It's wonderfully written, has all the components of a fictional thriller and takes you to real extremes of emotion. His other books are brilliant, too.'

Amazon blurb: 'The story of this nail-biting struggle for survival in the Peruvian Andes is a mountaineering classic'

What do you think? + tell me your 'must read' book on twitter :)


Buy from Amazon.
