Reviews

  • Maybe the prime minister should read it

    Stephen Frears, Guardian
  • I was enthralled by Wade Davis’s Into the Silence, an account of three failed Everest expeditions leading up to the death of Mallory in 1924, which brilliantly places those feats of endurance in the context of British imperialism and the psychological aftermath of the First World War

    Ben Macintyre, The Times
  • I was captivated. Wade Davis has penned an exceptional book on an extraordinary generation. From the pathos of the trenches to the inevitable tragedies high on Everest this is a book deserving of awards

    Joe Simpson, author of Touching the Void
  • Powerful and profound, a moving, epic masterpiece of literature, history and hope

    Sunday Times
  • Brilliantly engrossing...a superb book... At once a group biography of remarkable characters snatched from oblivion, an instant classic of mountaineering literature, a study in imperial decline and an epic of exploration

    Nigel Jones, Guardian
