    1. I found Beyond the Summit: An Everest Adventure and Romance by Linda LeBlanc a great tale about a place and people I’ve always wanted to know more about. Ms. LeBlanc is well qualified to give an accurate view of life and conditions in Nepal, having been there many times and a guide to the Everest basecamp. She spins this knowledge into a wonderful story of adventure and romance.The adventure and romance takes place in Nepal where the mightiest mountains in the world encompass the sky. This is [...]

    2. Not a bad story and definitely an interesting read about life in Nepal. I did not mind the peppering of words from the local language, as the meaning can be deduced from the context of the sentence or in some cases, stated clearly in the sentence itself. And authors do this all the time anyway in books set in non-English speaking countries. Sometimes it adds a little local colour to the book, sometimes it doesn't, but it doesn't bother me. The love story between Beth and Dorje is sweet and beaut [...]

    3. This book sat on my shelf for months before I could get myself to read it beyond page #5. Once I read past the initial few pages, I was hooked on to the book, the characters are nicely developed, the story is quite compelling and moves at a fast pace to keep the reader engaged till the end. The story gives a beautiful and vivid picture of the lives of Sherpas, the cultural and economic influences on their lives, the hazards they go through to be a part of a climbing expedition. The book beautifu [...]

    4. What a beautiful story! This was a freebie from , a love story set against the backdrop of Everest in the late 1960's (it was the Everest aspect that got my attention) Its a cross cultural love story with frostbite and avalanches and touches on some of the spiritual beliefs and cultural differences of the day. I wasn't sure what to expect when i started reading but the author brings the characters and the Himalayas to life - you can almost 'feel' the cold. One of my favourites this year!!

    5. I have read a number of books about climbing Everest and truly enjoyed this novel. I am always fascinated by the subject, and enjoyed a fictional account. The author showed many sides of each character - none were all bad or all good, and that made it more interesting. She also helped us understand the impact that foreigners have had on the villages and people that live in that area - both bad and good. I thought the book ended the only way it could have - but I will be thinking about it for qui [...]

    6. The story moves at a good pace and the descriptions of the geographical areas are wonderful, but the story is predictable. A good read for the times when you need a book that can be easily put down and picked up again later.

    7. I really liked this book. I loved the detail regarding life in Nepal in the late 60s, the culture of the west clashing with the culture of the east. The ending was a shock, and I felt like the book was unfinished, but other than that, it was a great read.

    8. I thoroughly enjoyed the references to Nepali culture that course through this book. A good read for anyone prior to going to EBC or to read whilst trekking the route as I did. The love story plays second fiddle to the background.

    9. Interesting cultural information told in a love story. Sad but raises some questions about the Western invasion of third world cultures and its implications for native people groups.
