1. I'm an avid fan of HP, especially portrayed by fabulous David Suchet (btw, I don't usually use "fabulous" in describing anything or anyone, but he's just THAT good). Among various actors that ever played Poirot, Mssr Suchet is most certainly the best in capturing the character. 2. this is an EXCELLENT set of the various cases, all starring this actor. Even if you never heard of the character of the actor before, you'll enjoy this immensely - given you like the mystery movies. :) 3. needs to be pointed that I got this set on clearance at absolutely unbeatable price, so the value for the money is definitely there.

I read this book after reading Into Thin Air and watching three movies featuring Ed Viesturs, including David Breashears' IMAX film. I was curious to read Viesturs' own account on Everest. The book is fantastic! Viesturs credits his co-author Dave Roberts for the quality of the writing, which is excellent. But I'm sure the stories and the tone of the book have a lot to do with Ed Viesturs as a person. He is not only one of the greatest high-altitude climbers, but also a wonderful human being. His integrity and respect for the mountain and people are evident throughout the book. The Mountain is also very informative. I thought I knew everything there was to know about famous Everest climbs, but I was wrong. I learned so much about the history of climbing Everest and its true heroes (who tend to remain unknown if they don't speak English ...) from this book. Really, what a treat to read The Mountain! I've already ordered all other books by Ed Viesturs and Dave Roberts.

I loved this heart warming story about David. We just don't realize all the stories that are out there about the war. This story is written so well and the young man in the movie does an excellent job. A real keeper and the song at the end of the movie is beautiful.
