5つ星のうち 4.0 Personal and inspiring! 2016/5/9
投稿者 Nastasia Verheijen - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
The book is written in an incredibly personal way. The writer gives insight in his thoughts and feelings while climbing Kili. Mr. Edwards doesn't shy away from negative experiences and thoughts while on the mountain. The route was also described nicely and the pictures definitely added an extra touch. To me this book was well worth the read. If you are planning to climb Kili this is a book to read to inspire you, to dig deeper and climb higher.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A superbly written book that can change your stars. 2012/12/10
投稿者 David C. Cassidy - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
When I began reading Kilimanjaro: One Man's Quest To Go Over The Hill, I quickly realized two things. First, M. G. Edwards is a superbly talented writer. Second, anything is possible.

This inspirational true story chronicles the day-by-day hiking trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Fascinating by itself, the real story is the courage and fortitude of the author as he summons the will to confront not only the perils of the mountain, but a far more dangerous demon: a burning mid-life crisis.

At forty years of age, out of shape, and struggling with an unsatisfying and demoralizing career, Michael Edwards knew that something had to give. Life had to change. For many people, such frustration and fear is all too real and paralyzing. Better the demon we know, no matter how unhappy and unfulfilled we are.

Virtually overnight--well, several nights--Michael Edwards changed his stars. Tackling something as monstrous as a mountain, he overcame adversity, cold, heat, searing aches and pains, channeling all of these victories toward a single goal: to prove to himself that from this point forward, nothing could stand in his way. Not a mountain, not an unhappy life.

Read this book. Change your stars. It's that good.
5つ星のうち 4.0 An inspiring analogy for personal change 2013/1/20
投稿者 A. McLaughlin - (Amazon.com)

As MG Edwards departs the confines of his usual life in seek of something more, his hike up Africa's tallest mountain becomes an analogy for personal change. While he delves almost exclusively into his own thoughts and experiences and relates little to the mountain or guides, the real story is in shifting the direction of his life. He contemplates leaving his job in the U.S. Foreign Service State Department to pursue the craft of writing, relaying valuable insight and lessons.

I felt that some of the thoughts and ideas were retold unnecessarily, and that some of the sentences could have been more concise. That said, Edwards is a skilled storyteller, and KILIMANJARO seems an ideal story for anyone contemplating major life decisions. The detailed information guide at the end and gorgeous photographs throughout add to the book's enjoyment and usefulness, making it well worth the purchase price. I look forward to learning more of Edwards' adventures as he journeys on!

5つ星のうち 4.0 Parts of the book were gripping........ 2012/11/8
投稿者 jewel-light - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I bought this book because I know the author and it is always fun reading books written by people I know.

Once I started reading the book I could not put it down - I wanted to find out if he made it to the summit. Finding about his reasons for climbing the mountain and preparing for it was somewhat interesting but the trek itself was gripping. Would he? Could he? I did not know and I wanted to find out.

Having read this book do I want to climb Africa's highest mountain? No! However I would recommend to family or friends who wanted to go on this incredible adventure to read this book so that they might be prepared to take their "quest over the hill."

5つ星のうち 5.0 Couldn't put it down 2012/4/25
投稿者 Uncle Phil - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I admit I bought this book because the author is a friend.

I started reading it because that's what friends do.

I couldn't put it down because it is a well written story about a real person's adventure, triumphs, fears, challenges and success. It's not about a superhero but a person like me going on the type of adventures I like to go on. I take that back. He is my hero.
