Into Thin Air

Author: Jon Krakauer
Reviewer's Age: Grade 8

This book tells about the disastrous and deadly climb of Mount Everest in 1996. Jon Krakauer, the author and narrator of this book, describes in detail everything that he and his fellow climbers did, and what happened, along with the events that led up to them. I liked this book because it had really great pictures of some of the climbers who died and told about them, and also because it told a lot about Mt. Everest. Into Thin Air is one of those books that has you turning the pages to see what happens next, and keeps you interested.
