It is a really interesting book, the story is very entertaining, I think it is a literature to young people like me, the story is shocking and you would want to read and keep reading. I recommend very good story.

I think everyone should instead focus their attention to the well written and well documented books in the matter, like the one Krakauer wrote, because is informing and presents facts and witnesses
