  1. On 5 January 2003, former Special Forces soldier Ken Jones was caught in a devastating avalanche as he climbed in the frozen wilderness of Romania s Transylvanian Alps Flung from a cliff, he regained consciousness to find himself shrouded in darkness, separated from his supplies, suffering from overexposure in the sub zero temperatures and in horrendous pain from a broken leg and shattered pelvis Heavily frostbitten and bleeding internally, Ken dragged himself to safety over three agonizing days [...]


  2. Ken s story is extremely interesting and inspiring.Although this is in essence a survival story there are many elements to his book that elevate it above much of the survivalist or man vs nature fare His occassional references to his training in the Paras and SAS both physical and mental and how this helped save his life on several occasions are fascinating Best of all is his humility, and how he candidly highlights all the fear and doubts he has had on his journey.




  3. The quote on the cover from the Telegraph says this book is simply gripping Is that accurate Boy, yes An extremely well written account of the author s mountain trek that goes badly wrong Not a spoiler to say avalanches are involved A long crawl to civilisation ensues.I was skipping a few pages ahead to see how much longer he would have to endure the pain and suffering of crawling out of the wilderness, only to go back and devour every word What makes this stand out from other other survival boo [...]


  4. This is an incredible story of survival I have heard Ken Jones the motivational speaker as well and I am in awe of his strength The book is very well written and visualised but I can t help thinking there is a slight emotional detachment in some areasI suppose that s what happens to you as you are hardened by these experiences.I find Joe Simpsons adventures a lot tear jerking perhaps because he tries to humanise why people take the risks that they do and justify the perceived selfishness of it [...]


  5. As far as I m concerned, this is on par with Touching the Void and far gripping than Between a rock and a hard place, both of which I consider good books Not just a adventure survival story, it follows his recovery and relationship with his friends and family throughout the ordeal Inspiring book written by a strong minded soul



  6. Perhaps I ve been spoilt with touching the void and between a rock and a hard place, inspiring story but not on a par with those
