Book review-The Ascent of Rum Doodle

Written by W E Bowman and first published in 1956 this is a gem of a book.  It tells the tale of a British mountaineering expedition to climb the highest mountain in the world-Rum Doodle.

Described by Bill Byson as the funniest book you havent read it is a spoof telling the tale of the conquest of the 40,000 and a half foot peak.  I found myself grinning a lot and laughing out loud on occasion.

Well worth a read.
