A man putting his life at risk.
When evolutionary biology professor Dr. Zack Hitchens loses his wife in a senseless accident, he decides to follow her dreams all the way to the roof of the world - the peak of Mount Everest. On the infernal mountain, Zack and his teammates battle sickness, whiteout conditions, avalanches, the oxygen-starved minds of other climbers - and something else. Something primitive and consumed with rage. Something seeking revenge.
Something downright abominable.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Yeti: A Novel to be better than the print version?
I can't compare them as I've only heard the audio version
Who was your favorite character and why?
Which character – as performed by Jeffrey S. Fellin – was your favorite?
Jeffrey S. Fellin did all the voices and accents so well that they seemed very real. Great narrator that I've never heard before. I will look for more books narrated by him.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The characters are "fleshed out" so well by the author that you really feel that you are right there with them in the adventure. The character of the "professor" really touched me. He is no super hero, but is a very honest and introspective person. He risks his life doing what he feels is the right thing to do. The ending really touched me.
Any additional comments?
I usually stick to books by my favorite authors, but lately their books haven't been all that great. So I decided to take a chance on these new authors that I haven't listened to before. I am so impressed with their writing. First, their characters are so human and multi-dimensional. There are no "bad guys, good guys" but very human sorts of beings that you can have empathy for even though you may not like what they do. These writers must have done a great deal of research or else are mountain climber themselves. They sure described the climbing of Everest with such detail that the listener really feels like they are along on the expedition. The cryptozoology is something that I find fascinating. I have often wondered if "creatures" like Big Foot and the Yeti could be ancient hominids that evolved along side humans, hiding away to protect their existence. Evolution seems to be having to be re-written as new discoveries are made which indicate that evolution was not linear and the existance of other forms, such as Gigantopithicus, the Hobbit, Denisovans etc prove that several different hominid species existed along side modern humans. So, this story is not entirely far fetched and is fascinating to ponder. I will certainly look for more books by these authors. Most enjoyable story telling!
