I finished Into the Abyss two weeks ago and I can recommend reading the book wholeheartedly. What I found really fascinating about the book is the story AFTER the crash and rescue of the four survivors. The crash was only part of the story. What happened to each of the survivors after is what gave the book its meat.
I recognized JUST a bit of Into Thin Air, the book about the 1996 Mount Everest Tragedy Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer is another nonfiction tragic adventure that anyone interested in reading this kind of book should definitely track down.
Into the Abyss is more than a plane crash story. It’s a story of the friendship that develops with the survivors. Each of the survivors carry scars from the crash, both physical and psychological and it’s the psychological scars that hurt one survivor more than any of the others. I’m not going to tell you which one however. You’ll have to read the book to discover that secret.
And trust me. Once you pick this book up, you’ll be hard pressed to put it down until you’ve finished it.
Until next time…
