On planet Eno, there stands a mountain that has never been summited. Many have tried. All have failed. This climbing season finds three teams making their bid up this murderous peak. And one man among them will discover these ugly truths: There are fates worse than death. There are fates worse than obscurity. To be remembered forever can be its own curse.
Jonathan Davis is the perfect narrator for the main character of this audiobook, a man dead set on fame and glory. Davis narrates the protagonist's dark thoughts with harsh cadences that jut out of a usually cold and deadpan voice. The Walk up Nameless Ridge is a science fiction, set on the remote planet Eno, where a mountain twice the height of Everest remains to be climbed. Listeners will be on the edge of their seats as our protagonist's insatiable appetite for stardom lets him stop at nothing - not even murder - to conquer this mountain. The audiobook is both a gripping adventure and an acute look at what kind of evil men are capable of.

Engrossing short story
My new favorite short story.
The writing was great. I believe I know the character even though it was a short story. Enough science fiction to make the story good but in a way completely believable.
The way Howey writes.
He is totally believable as the character.
Not to spoil the book the one thing that moved me was the main characters' honesty and or dishonesty when he puts his goals above his Wife and kids. How his goals were not as he promised.
Buy anything Hugh Howey writes you will not be disappointed. I believe he may be the next Ray Bradbury. Just check out the Silo series and see.
