Where does Die Trying rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's one of the ones I can listen to over and over
What did you like best about this story?
The fact that it's more humorous than other mountain books. I know one reviewer mentioned that it lacked deeper meaning, and I suppose it does. Then again, most other mountain books are rather serious, and this is refreshing. It's slightly more along the lines of a travel book than pure mountaineering book, and I really enjoyed it. The narrator is good, too.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The Indonesian bit, when he struggles to even get to the mountain he's trying to climb.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were many moments that made me laugh.

Any additional comments?
This is a really interesting, engaging book. We listened to it on a long journey and were totally inspired by Bo's attitude and achievements. The stories are interesting and written in a frank and funny way. The narration is good and well-paced. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody with a love of the mountains, travel-writing and stories of an ordinary guy going on an extraordinary adventure!
Story lacks real emotions. Such an epic story deserves revealing deeper meaning. Being a climber and guide, there is so much deep meaning and discovery in challenges such as this.
