    "Seven Years in Tibet is the memoir by the explorer turned prisoner of war Heinrich Harrer. Harrer was captured in India during the second World War and eventually escaped by transversing the Himalayas and crossing into Tibet. It's a great read for both fans of history and adventure. "

    "A classic memoir by Heinrich Harrer and brings people back to 1943. Heart warming story that shows the struggles of people in India in this time period."
  • Ethan Schneider

    "The plot of this book just isn't my type of thing. Maybe if it was made into an action movie starring Tom Cruise I might check it out, but the book seems pretty tame."

    "Seven Years in Tibet is a memoir piece that follows the author as he escapes from a concentration camp in India and crosses the Himalayas into Tibet to become the Dalai Llama's Tutor. It's quite engaging and shows the dichotomy of the social classes as well as the amount of prejudiced, bigotry, and unfairness of life in these times. I highly recommend it as it was very enlightening."

    "Seven Years in Tibet does take place in the great outdoors and is fairly well known thanks to the movie with Brad Pitt. That said, I'm not sure if this memoir about escaping a concentration camp is what someone looking for the great outdoors would enjoy."

    "This is a vivid memoir that depicts the difficult journey that the author has reaching the Tibetan capital and offers his views and observations of Tibetan life. Harrer does a marvelous job giving his perspective on the Tibetan culture. A truly outstanding adventure story."

    "This difficult, different and gripping story became an equally absorbing movie. It should continue to captivate readers for generations to come, because the story is at one leve adventure undertaking, while also being a philosophical quest, nestled within a story of dark and compelling real history."
