Zulkik La senda de la gloria by Jeffrey Archer 2 star ratings But perhaps that kind of detail was not recorded and is not available. September 3, Sold by: This might not be the best book of Jeffrey Archer, but it still is a good book to read. We say to wrcher I started this book with an expectation that it will be an inspirational book,but i think this book is not fit for that category. I have always liked Archer for his gift of engaging his readers in an entertaining story with interesting characters. Hokori to Fukushu 2 Heffrey.

Shelves: guy-lit , mystery , audiobook , historical-fiction , biography My second Jeffrey Archer and I liked it. Now this book is based on the life story of George Mallory who was said to be the first human being who reached the top of Mt.
Everest in He and his friend Andrew "Sandy" Irving disappeared that year and were last seen vertical feet from the summit. Whether he reached the top or not is still being debated and investigated up to now. If proven that he succeeded, he will unseat Sir Edmund Hillary Forget about the details of the mountain climbing though.
This book is not a historical account of the climb and felt more like the love story of George Mallory and his wife Ruth Turner The story opens when George was a little boy frolicking on the beach and without his family noticing, he walked towards a huge rock and when his pastor father saw him, the father did not run after his son because he was amazed that the boy was "very brave and did not have any hint of risk.
When asked why, he said "because it is there" and these 4 words are not very popular among mountaineers around the world. Did Mallory succeed or fail in conquering Mt. But did Jeffrey Archer make hints in his novel? Yes, he did. In my opinion the last letter that Mallory sent to Ruth revealed that he was not physically fit to climb anymore and "he was afraid to close his eyes because if he did, he knew that he might not be able to open it anymore" wrote Archer.
You see, Mallory loved his wife so much that he brought a photo of Ruth and promised his wife that he would put it on top of the mountain if he got there. Mallory was 37 years old when he disappeared on Mt. Regardless of whether he succeeded or not, the fact that his body was found only meters before the summit is good enough for me. We all know that the ice is melting and it should be easier to reach the peak now compared to in when global warming was still unknown to many people.
George Mallory, sir, in my heart, I know you reached the top!
