review Escape from Kathmandu

Escape from Kathmandu Read & Download ☆ 4 Living in the city of Kathmandu in the Kingdom of Nepal are dozens of American and British expatriates who are in love with the Himalayas George Fergusson is one of them he works as a trek guide for Take You Higher Ltd leading groups of tourists into the back country and occasionally assisting on serious climbs George Freds Fredericks is a. Stuff I Read Escape from Kathmandu by Kim Stanley Robinson ReviewSo I read the first section of this book in the Best of Kim Stanley Robinson collection and I was charmed by the zany story of these people in Kathmandu having crazy adventures Jimmy Carter A Yeti Evil naturalists and some really weird stuff punctuated by booze and boredom If it had been all of that I probably would have liked it But while the adventures are all rather odd and have some really hilarious action to them they begin to get a little strained as the book keeps going The first two stories I uite enjoyed but the third was a little bit not as pleasant and then the last one didn t uite hit me the same wayI suppose what I liked about it was the fun There are some really weird things that happen in this book There s the Yeti in the first part In the second Freds and George are climing Everest with a reincarnated Buddhist lama But even in the second part I was started to get a little uncomfortable with some of it Especially the annoying documentary guy was justwell he doesn t really get what s coming to him He s creepy and abusive and keeps filming the one female climber without her permission and he basically gets away with it He does And that wasdisappointing The third story brings Freds and George who become the main characters off on an adventure to prevent a road from being built And that s when it sort of lost me a bit The writing is still solid and Freds is always fun ButWell at that point George really stops having fun In the first story he s having fun and then in the second a little less and then by this one he s really just being tortured He endures some really bad sickness and then the crippling bureaucracy of Nepal and then it all just doesn t work It was hard to read because the fun disappeared It was similarly gone in the fourth story and I m not sure if it s because the stories are just a bit less crazy or if it s because the focus shifts to something that s a bit serious namely the state of Nepal and how George and Freds and all are basically leeching off of a situation that for most of the people involved is terrible The book does circle around that idea and shows that the characters aren t exactly saints but then I m not really sure how it comes down in the endBecause the ending is just sort of status uo upheld And George and Freds willjust continue I guess I m really not sure what happens or how I m supposed to take the ending because up to a point if it s just a fun series of stories then okay But if this is about something deeper about the situation in Nepal or Tibet and how the corruption there is allowed to continue because it s help up by foreign money thenwhat were the first two stories with a Yeti and climbing Everest It just doesn t jive well for me I mean I liked it but certainly not as much as I could have For me it provides some good laughs but I was left a bit cold on parts A 62510 for me

Escape from Kathmandu Read & Download ☆ 4 Nother a tall easy going American who converted to Buddhism while in college He visited Nepal one year and never went homeThe adventures started when George and Freds got together over the capture of a Yeti an abominable snowman by a scientific expedition The thought of such a wild and mysterious creature in captivity in prison was too muc. I read this book while I was volunteering at an orphanage in Kathmandu and I loved it from the first page Nepal is a magical place Kim Stanley Robinson captures its essence in these interconnected stories There s a yeti There s a monk who can sleep outside in the snow without getting cold There s a secret city underneath the streets of Kathmandu Having lived in Kathmandu for several months I needed only the slightest suspension of disbelief to accept these phenomena But anyone who s stayed in the Thamel district of Kathmandu knows that the real fantasy element is the consistent hot water George has in his hotel shower I love this book it makes me homesick for Nepal Cold water and all

Escape from Kathmandu Read & Download ☆ 4 H for them to bear And in freeing the Yeti a great partnership was born George and Freds will go on to greater heights as they explore the mysteries of Nepal from Shangri La to Kathmandu's governmental bureaucracyContentsEscape from Kathmandu 1986Mother Goddess of the World 1987The True Nature of Shangri La 1989The Kingdom Underground 1990. This is an oldy but a goody It was originally published in 1989 though I read a 2000 edition that I bought in Pokhara Nepal is probably the only place one is likely to find this book on the shelves of a bookstore other than used book sellers If you didn t get your copy in Nepal or haven t been to the Himalaya the one thing you need to know to admire the uirkiness of this book is that the grandiosity of what you experience in the Himalaya makes lost cities ala Shangri La or lost species ala the Yeti seem less unlikely than you would ordinarily think themThis isn t so much a novel in the sense of a work with a single narrative arc as it is a novel in stories that consists of four adventure stories featuring the same lead characters George Fergusson and George Freds Fredricks some overlapping minor characters and all of them set somewhere within Nepal The cross cutting theme of these stories is that of trying to rescue the magic of Nepal dusty and dilapidated as it can sometimes be from modernity and the grasping hands thereof The point of view character varies from one story to the next though not within stories The setting criss crosses Nepal from Everest to Chitwan forest to ill defined border areas but always going back to or cutting through Kathmandu The titular first story of the book is about an attempt to rescue a Yeti that has been captured and taken King Kong style back to civilization by way of Kathmandu The second adventure presents a race to hide the body of a famous deceased climber before it can be found and plundered by individuals who would like to take it from Nepal to make their names from the investigation of it or possibly the novelty of it You may or may not be aware that the bodies of most of the people who ve died climbing Everest remain up there often buried in snow and ice but occasionally exposed The penultimate story is about trying to save Shangri La by stopping a road that is to be built too close to it for comfort The final adventure imagines that there are ancient of tunnels under Nepal and centered in Kathmandu In this story the conflict between the old and modernity is brought to a head is a most challenging way by the fact that the threat to the secret ancient tunnels is a badly needed sewer system for Kathmandu While in the first three stories the reader readily knows who to root for in this last story he or she is hung on the horns of a dilemma I enjoyed this book tremendously It s humorous The two Georges though one conveniently goes by the name Freds offer a classic odd couple dynamic The stories and characters are uirky but the book still manages to hang on to its theme and lessons I d highly recommend this book for those who like humorous adventure stories
