A Passion For Climbing
I enjoy reading autobiographies and looked forward to learning this woman's story. The book was nice and the story had several interesting elements. But it felt stilted and dry as well. Based on the story, I felt that the reason for the bland presentation was the translation. The phrase "lost in translation" came across my mind multiple times while reading this. I wanted to love the story, but it was just okay. I feel confident that with a smoother translation the author's zest for climbing and zeal for her mountains would truly shine through. Those that are more familiar with the mountains or love climbing will enjoy this book.
I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
