Really Nice

I started this book thinking that I would very much dislike it because it really didn't sound like what I normally read - it was not at all my usual genre. Not only historical fiction, but historical fiction about the first man climbing the Everest Mountain, didn't sound like much to me. Nevertheless, I took a leap of faith out of my comfort zone and very early into the book I realized... that my attempt couldn't have been more successful! I ended up loving the story and couldn't stop reading it! Paths of Glory is a story of trying really hard to achieve your dreams, being passionate and making sacrifices but never against others. Therefore, there are issues of morality being touched upon and constant dilemmas are present. Jeffrey Archer did an incredible job mixing the facts of one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of all time with his own special elements - mostly when it came to characters' development. Personally, I was very fond of George Mallory the way he was described in this book, since he was presented as a very moral, altruistic and humble man who always competed fairly and helped others. Another detail that excited me was how Mallory was described as a real feminist, with messages of equality being dispersed by him all over the story. Although I can't find a way to check whether George Mallory really was such a progressive personality, it really made me smile! Of course, the rest of the characters also were deeply developed and intriguing. And if you're wondering how a book about climbing mountains possibly not end up being slow/boring at some point (like I did before reading it), I'm assuring you that a) the author has his way of making the book fast-paced and very interesting because b) this book is about much more than just literally climbing mountains *sighs*
