Book Review-Life and Limb by Jamie Andrew

This was an interesting read. You get the story of Jamie's climbing adventures, the type of book I really enjoy, and then comes the details of the tragic climb that was to change his life forever. You can feel the tension of the two men stuck up on the mountain slowly freezing to death while weather conditions frustrate their rescuers. The details of his frostbite and treatment are quite shocking and it brings home to you just how dangerous climbing of any kind can be.

The second part of the book does drag a bit in places as you follow Jamie's recovery in the hospital but it is still a good read.
