What did you love best about Summit?
EVERYTHING! Beautifully written, gripping plot, great characters, brilliant narration.
What other book might you compare Summit to and why?
Into Thin Air, for the mountain climbing experience. All the greats...Baldacci, Eisler, Lee Child, etc., for a great mystery read.
What does Harry Farthing bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I am a passionate Audible ear-reader. I don't feel even my beloved narrators (Grover Gardner, Scott Brick, Dick Hill, Richard Ferrone, Len Cariou) could have performed this book as movingly as the author did himself.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
IF ONLY!!! 17 hours is a bit much even for ME to do in one day. Tho I routinely listen to over 10 hours in a day. But I hated to turn off my Kindle.
Any additional comments?
I don't think anyone could go wrong buying this book. I can easily imagine listening to parts of it over and over (in fact, even during my first reading, I went back a few times, just to savor the writing since the first time thru I was sometimes holding by breath to see what would happen.

Sometimes when I s search through titles and thumbnail clips of stories, I rarely expect to find a story that resurrects my belief in human nature, but this is one of those books. The story is a historical setting for a group of fictional characters.
This story begins with a group of young nazi soldiers smuggling Jewish refugees to safety at the onset of WWII, these men are caught and systematically killed off by the German SS and the one remaining soldier is trained to climb to the top of Everest and wave the 3rd Reich flag in the face of the world.
There is a 2009 parallel going on within the pages of this book and it is a thrill ride, and no less dramatic than the SS story.
There is so much going on in this book that I could not even begin to do justice to it.
There are antiquities dealers, renegade soldiers, love interests, Russian strong arms, true villains to the max.
The ultimate lesson of this story shows how difficult it is for people to do the right thing, and how difficult it s to remain on the side of truth, honor, and loyalty.
I hope you enjoy this one"....it is truly a great story!
