The Mountain Story
Several years ago, I read – and loved – The Girls, so when I saw that its author, Lori Lansens, had a new book out, The Mountain Story, I quickly bought it.
I was drawn into the story on the first page and stayed there through the last. This is a survival story of four people lost on a mountain. The book is rich in realistic dialogue, prose that is picturesque without being pretentious, and perfect pacing. I liked the main character, Wolf, from the get-go, and came to care deeply for the others as well. While not laden with earth-shattering issues, The Mountain Story is a very, very good read.
