Ueffrey with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Paths of Glory is a fictionalized account of George Mallory, a mountaineer who tried to conquer the Mount Everest inbut nobody knows whether he succeeded because he died during that attempt. It is not confirmed whether Mallory died on the way down which makes him the first man to have scaled Mount Everest or on the way up.

La Senda De La Gloria

Many people believe that Mallory died before he climbed the highest point. Jeffrey Archer thinks otherwise. Keeping the mystery and the controversies aside, this book is an entertaining read.

Archer is a wonderful story teller and knows how he should paint his characters so as to please his readers. He knows when to end a chapter to ensure that the reader hops onto the next one without any interval. I have always liked Archer for his gift of engaging his readers in an entertaining story with interesting characters. Reading Archer is like watching a Hindi masala movie — quick, entertaining and thrilling.

This might not be the best book of Jeffrey Archer, but it still is a good book to read. It’s a well told story, because Archer is a great story teller.

But I just am not interested enough in upper class passion for mountain climbing. I read somewhere that Jeffrey Archer was d years in researching this book.

It really doesn’t show. You don’t get any real sense of Archre as anything other than some kind of heroic cypher with a couple of endearing flaws. There is no sense at anytime that Archer has created a character that was a living, breathing human being.


I felt very similarly about the depiction gloriz his wife Ruth. The liberties that Archer takes with the story don’t really justify themselves artistically and some of them c I read somewhere that Jeffrey Archer was 8 years in researching this book.

The liberties that Archer takes with the story don’t really justify themselves artistically and some of them come across as downright silly.

His prose is about as limpid as jeffret and nowhere does he get into the mindset of a man gripped by an obsession and torn between two passions, one for his wife and one for a mountain. I am reading a marvellous book at the moment called “Into the Jeffey which goes into great detail about Mallory’s companions who were fascinating men in their own right, but in this pot-boiler they are a homogenous bunch, apart from George Finch and Hinks who are slightly more interesting in their almost villainous portrayals.

I wouldn’t normally read Jeffrey Archer except that Mallory’s story is so fascinating, but he even managed to make me put the book down for a few days and switch my allegiance to “Into the Silence” which I am even more anxious racher get stuck into now that I have done my duty and seen it through to Archer’s rather botched conclusion.

This is not a typical Jeffrey Archer book. Whilst I enjoyed the manufactured ‘s speech senfa and the ‘man against nature’ adventure story, the ‘facts’ were just a bit too neat to be believable.


In the front sendw the author gives the game away with ‘ Inspired by a true story’ and that was where the book lost me. In today’s cynical world climbing the Eiffel tower and escaping hotel glloria through open windows ten floors up is a bit rich.

A book to read when all else fails. Fictionalized biography of George Mallory, possibly the first man to conquer Mount Everest. Mallory died in the attempt after having been observed making his final assault on the peak, and his body was not discovered for decades, with no clue as to whether he was ascending or descending at the time.

As a wenda, it just never really clicked with me, possibly because he was never able to adequately explain the “because it is there” mentality that leads mountaineers upward. That should have been enough to keep me away. But, I had bought it four and a half years ago.

There are a couple of good moments in the book. I read a few pages daily, initially, then just gave up. Read the remaining half of the book in gloris past two days. Author seems to have written a half page script, then just filled the pages with words. Book just skims the surface. Be it characterisation, event unfolding, descriptions Stay away, read something else.


Jeffrey Archer has become too predictable with this book. Admitted it is sort of biography but it only skims the story of George Mallory. The passion and motivation heffrey the man somehow does not come through.

The book reads more like a collection of newspaper articles with some dialogs interspersed. Clearly lacking the thrills and drama of early Archer books.


This is the most boring Jeffery Archer book I have ever read. I listened to it and let it go on and on, enjoying it to some degree. I knew it was a fictionalized account but decided to give it a shot anyway. Not the usual Archer jjeffrey turner. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I decided I needed to corroborate Archer as I suspected he might be taking liberties.

I know it’s fiction but it is meant to be historical fiction and thus I would have expected him to stick to the true path, as it were. So, this is an entertaining read and if that is all you want I understand Archer attempting to jeffrwy a climbing slant into every moment of Mallory’s life and also his desire to keep referring to the theme of xrcher journeys being hazardous.

But I think he could have managed ka and still maintained greater historical accuracy. And also given Mallory a greater depth of character than he achieved, as well as answering questions like why his daughter was named something so unusual as Beridge. His mother’s middle name, I believe. Climbing holiday with Mr. George finds his own way up and down a mountain and is sent home.


Irving, Winchester schoolmaster, there is the famous jeffrfy where Mallory falls and is only saved by his safety rope. Visit Paris and the Moulin Rouge. Instead we have a ridiculous interview for the leadership of the expedition which is weighed heavily against George Finch and involves a over-elaborate test in a strange torture-like chamber supposed to mimic high altitudes during which Mallory triumphs over Finch.

Did this ever occur??? Finch, a firm advocate for the use of oxygen, is included in the keffrey. After others attempt the summit, Mallory is defeated by an avalanche that kills seven sherpas, including Sherpa Leader Nyima whom Mallory had come to respect enormously. Mallory is sacked on his return to Charterhouse, as the term had already started and he was deemed late.

Quite liked the use of To Be A Pilgrim interspersed between descriptions of the responses by various people to news of Mallory’s failure and the memorial services that followed.

But the idea that Ruth received a letter from him dated June 7th is ridiculous as one of his companions would have had to take it from jeffeey camp and post it, when they would surely have carried it home and delivered it in person. Well this was pretty much what I expected. This dude named George Mallory wanted to climb Mount Everest and tried three times to do it. The first two times the weather stopped him and the third time he got dead. Did he make it to the top? I have no idea. And the author doesn’t know any more than I do.

So are you an optimist and like the guy?

He died feet away from his lifelong goal and never attained it.
