I can't stop thinking about this book which usually means five stars. It was "just another crash story" for a long time, but it took place in the High Uintahs, a range of treacherous mountains in my home state of Utah so my visualizations of the terrain were easy to come up with. They most likely would have been anyway due to Martin's good descriptive writing. Still, it took place in familiar surroundings and I liked that.
The protagonist, Ben Payne, just happened to be a doctor which might seem like Martin used his profession as a convenience, and he did, but it was so much more than that. How Martin kept the plot twist so well hidden it s a tribute to his skill as a writer. Even now just thinking about it, it brings emotions to the surface. I loved it.

What did you love best about The Mountain Between Us?
When someone asks me for a book recommendation, I always suggest The Mountain Between Us. I love the story, the development of the characters and interaction between Ben and Ashley, and the unexpected ending. All these add up to a superb novel about what makes us human. And I thought the narrator was excellent.
What other book might you compare The Mountain Between Us to and why?
A book I read years ago called "The Distant Summer" by Sarah Patterson. Another of my all-time favorites.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It makes me cry every time I listen to it -- and I have done so several times.
Any additional comments?
Read it - or listen to it. You won't regret it.
