Publisher's Summary

This is the story of a man who loved two women, and one of them killed him. Some people have dreams that are so outrageous that if they were to achieve them, their place in history would be guaranteed. Francis Drake, Robert Scott, Percy Fawcett, Charles Lindbergh, Amy Johnson, Edmund Hillary and Neil Armstrong are among such individuals. But what if one man had such a dream, and when he'd achieved it, there was no proof that he had fulfilled his ambition? Paths of Glory, is the story of such a man. But not until you've turned the last page of this extraordinary novel, will you be able to decide if George Mallory should be added to this list of legends, because if he were, another name would have to be removed.

Artless and witless

Archer takes a stab at 'faction', which is misguided at best: he's not the world's most skilled wordsmith, and story is all he's got. There is not a single original simile, metaphor or image of any kind in this entire book, just a relentless parade of cliches. He manages to make climbing Everest sound as challenging and arduous as popping out to the newsagents for some cigarettes. Avoid like ... well, the plague.

fantastic stuff

Fantastic story and Archer really on top form. All the more engaging and moving for being based on real life events with the author 'filling in the gaps'. The narration was good-it seems a little old fashioned but that kind of fits with the era of the story. I recommend this one
