What the community says about Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors
- "Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors is an intense and epic book that is, surprisingly, based upon a true story. The twists and turns and sense of adventure seem to separate this text from reality. It is amazing to me that anyone survived this plane crash. Check out this book if you want to be enthralled from the first page to the last."
- "My friend Tal recommended this book for me after an accident involving the amputation of three of my limbs after a tire blowout in my hot-rod resulted in a catastrophic crash. This book allowed me to cope and relate with extreme situations and find a bit of glory as I lay on a hospital bed. It now prominently sits on my top shelf in remembrance."
- "I wanted to find a good non fiction adventure book and found Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors. This story of plane crash survivors is a crazy trip and really suspenseful. I can't believe this is real some times, but it is. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for gripping, real life stories. "

in What are the best books about war"This true life story is captivating. It quickly brings to mind what the reader would do in the exact situation for survival. I am not sure I could eat another person, but put to the test like the rugby team, I would definately have to question it in order to survive."
- "This book had me on the edge of my seat. I knew the person who wrote the memoir survived, but that did not stop me from trying to guess what would happen next. The vivid descriptions made me feel as if I was the one who was experienced a plane crash and it was almost terrifying. I finished the book in only 5 days due to how engaging it was."
