Review:

His story is awesome. It is also enthralling, inspirational and an impressive testimony to one man's unquenchable instinct for survival and to the amazing resilience of the human spirit (DAILY MAIL)

This book not only reveals the lengths to which humans will go to survive, it makes you question your own strengths and weaknesses. Would you have resorted to cannibalism? Would you have survived the nights? Would you have survived the deaths of so many friends? Would you have set off for help?
Only a handful of people know the answers to these questions. Nando Parrado is one - and his dramatic story is moving, powerful and riveting (DAILY EXPRESS)

A moving story of love and faith (CHOICE)

an inspirational story of survival...a compelling account of unimaginable obstacles overcome (James Scudamore THE SPECTATOR)

A very moving account of the indomitability of the human spirit (DUBLIN EVENING HERALD)

This has got to be one of the most moving, horrific, incredible and inspirational stories I've ever read...What makes (it) special is that it is a first-hand account of Nando Parado who decided with his friend, Roberto, to climb for ten days over the 17,000 feet mountain at temperatures of 35c below freezing in search of help. They were wearing jeans, rugby boots, T-shirts and sweaters! (THE IRISH CATHOLIC)

Nando's story fills in the gaps left by the film and will truly amaze you (WOMAN'S OWN)

more than three decades later, this book of the book and the film, is an utterly compelling read. The searing monologue of a privileged youth, Fernando "Nando" Parrado, goes from unbelievable to unimaginable as the values of his cosy upbringing are shattered, replaced by a nightmare of imminent death and survival (SUNDAY EXPRESS)

This is Nando's incredible account of those 72 days of hell on a frozen mountain - and it's one that you'll find difficult to put down and impossible to forget (DAILY RECORD)

Captivating, moving and inspiring (ATLANTICA)
