And like Touching the Void, Life and Limb is brilliantly written and utterly un-put-down-able. If ever a tale evokes the phrase "life affirming" then this is it. Life and Limb is a genuinely life-enhancing read.

Since the accident, Jamie has struggled painfully and successfully to overcome his disabilities; not only has he learnt to walk and run on his prosthetic legs, but also to ski, snowboard, paraglide - and even take up his beloved mountaineering again.
