Book of the week

Touching the voidMy book of the week is Touching the Void.   I’ve chosen it because it must be the biggest page turner in the library (OK,  there isn’t much competition!)   I defy anyone who starts it to put it down before finishing it.   In case you haven’t seen the film, it tells the story of British mountaineer Joe Simpson’s  miraculous escape following a mountaineering accident in South America.  Joe and his climbing partner Simon Yates climbed Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes  but an unlucky slip left Joe with a broken leg  and Simon the unenviable challenge of getting him down the mountain.   I won’t spoil it by telling you the rest!

If you’d like to join in with our book of the week feature you can add a comment about this book, or tell us your own recommendation and who knows, maybe they’ll feature in a future book of the week post!
