Book Review: The Way Out by Craig Childs

The Way Out: A True Story of Ruin and SurvivalThe Way Out: A True Story of Ruin and Survival by Craig Childs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wish I could write descriptive narrative text the way Craig Childs does. His use of language is inspiring, as is the use of flashbacks to tell the various parts of this story.

At times however the descriptive narrative style can overtake the story, and become just a little too much. Too much detail, too often and the story falters rather than flows. It’s a bit of a harsh criticism for a book that I really enjoyed, but I suspect that it might put many readers off.
