    "Into the Wild is the story of Christopher McCandless and most people will be familiar with the movie by the same name. It's a great story of adventure and allows the reader to transport themselves into another place. McCandless is a controversial topic among outdoorspeople but I thought the book was a great read. "

    "I first heard about this account from a friend who told me the story as if he was there because he had read the book. He described how 8 climbers died from a climbing expedition at Mt. Everest that should not have been. The story was intriguing that I have been dying to read it. I believe it is one of Jon Krakauer’s best so far. Although I have not read it yet, I think from the reviews I have read and the account given to me, it is surely going to give the reader value for every page opened. "

    "One of the most shocking accounts of the development of a major denomination I can imagine. I found it so disturbing that I actually started a book group so I'd have some people to discuss it with. Well researched and written with all the flair of a novel."

    "This book has a lot of information about mountain climbing. I was not completely interested in this book though. I think some people would like it a lot, especially men."

    "Missoula is a book that takes a look at the issue of sexual assault on campuses and it doesn't just tip toe around the surface of the subject. Missoula gets deep and gritty with the reality that many women and some men face in college life."

    "Let me preface this by saying that I am a low energy kind of guy. I know not to judge a book by its cover, but there is no way that I could possibly do the yoga position on the cover. I don't think that this would be beneficial to me."
