A Real Thriller Jun 24, 2007
John Krakauer is, I think, one of the very best storytellers of our time! In this book, he takes history and factual current events, and turns them into a spine-tingling thriller.
He is concise, with an intelligent and interest-holding way with words, and brings the reader into the very heart of the subject he is writing about. I simply could not put this book down, although in the beginning, I picked it up more from a sense of duty to be informed, rather than expecting to be "entertained" by reading it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in history, religion, the American past, or to anyone just plain wanting a "good read"!
