THE IMPOSSIBLE CLIMB Alex Honnold, El Capitan, and the Climbing Life

by | Read by Mark Deakins

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This is a listen for fans of the Oscar-winning documentary FREE SOLO. It's a listen for fans of incredible feats of daring and athletic accomplishment. And it's a listen for those wanting a glimpse of what drives extreme athletes. Mark Deakins does an excellent job narrating the story of Mark Synnott--a climber, a friend of Alex Honnold (the subject of FREE SOLO), and perhaps the ideal person to share the story of climbers and the culture of climbing. Deakins captures Synnott's enthusiasm for the sport and engages the listener as the author explains--as best anyone can--what drives individuals to take on challenges that involve the risk of severe injury--or even death. This is an exciting and fun audiobook. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
