‘Because it’s there’ – George Leigh Mallory
‘SUMMIT’ is a fictional story that has fact in the foundations of its two imaginary journeys. The obvious fact is that Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world standing tall and high at the height of 29,029 feet or 8,848 meters.
This book is originally published by Blackstone Publishing (UK) and published in India by Westland Books. This is Westland’s Books first international release and after reading, I have no doubt why the publisher chooses this book.
The two stories run parallel in the book; one is of 1938 of Joseph Becker who is a Nazi soldier in German military and other is of 2009 of Neil Quinn, a seasoned mountain guide in charge of the 16 year old son of a Long Island Billionaire.
The story of the book is refreshing. A masterpiece which you cannot afford to miss. For all the avid readers who want to read something good, this is the book for you. I recommend this book to all the readers not just those who are fascinated by the mountains (like me) or adventure or thriller reader but the reader who always ready to take a dive in the ocean of words. Don’t miss it, I am saying it again. This book is madness.
As a reader it is my one of the priceless possessions. The book like this is written in once in every thousand book. Don’t just go with the name of the book, it is not about the tracking, the difficulties they face to reach on the top of the world or something. This is something you have never read before. The book is a complex thriller which does not let you move out of your place. A compelling page turner.
Magnificent! Enthralling! Spellbinding! Fast paced novel.
