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'
