Audio Book Summary

International bestselling author Jeffrey Archer returns with a triumphant historical novel, Paths of Glory.

Paths of Glory, is the story of such a man-George Mallory. Born in 1886, he was a brilliant student who became part of the Bloomsbury Group at Cambridge in the early twentieth century and served in the Royal Garrison Artillery during World War I. After the war, he married, had three children, and would have spent the rest of his life as a schoolteacher, but for his love of mountain climbing.

Mallory once told a reporter that he wanted to climb Mt. Everest, 'because it is there.' On his third try in 1924, at age thirty-seven, he was last seen four hundred feet from the top. His body was found in 1999, and it remains a mystery whether he and his climbing partner, Andrew Irvine, ever reached the summit.

In fact, not until you've turned the last page of Archer's extraordinary novel will you be able to decide if George Mallory should be added to that list of legends, while another name would have to be removed.

    It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did it was very interesting. I didn't realize it was mostly a true story until the very end, once I realized this it became much more interesting to me! Not my favourite Archer book, but still well worth the read!
