Fast read, just finished within 2 days! Loved it....adopted into the movie with Idris Elba and Kate Winslet in it.
“All my life, I’d struggled in the waves, tossed, turned, thrown about like a rag doll, forever trying to surface, screaming for air, but somewhere some unseen hand held me beneath the foam and froth. But in that moment, you held back the waves, lifted me above the surface, and filled me.”

The writing in this book created a very vivid picture of the mountains the two characters are trapped on and the perilous journey they must undertake to get home. It is quite fortunate that one of the characters is an orthopedic surgeon (and a skilled mountain hiker), but if you can overlook those things, I think it's a very compelling read. The characters are likable and I hated to put the book down most of the time; I always wanted to know what would happen next.

This was an enjoyable read & well researched. After awhile you thought that it must be a non fiction story because it was so believeable. It's a story that is hard to put down. Can't wait for the movie!

Two people survive a plane crash, but are badly injured. Stranded, they are forced to trust each other in order to find safety in the deserted wilderness. The Mountain Between Us is a story about survival, but it also becomes a love story

Wonderful book, although it did drag a bit in the middle. Great twist at the end! Definitely recommend it, especially since the trailers for the upcoming movie look like they changed the story a fair bit.

Loved this book. Finished it in two days. It's a whirlwind of adventure and emotion that completely swept me away. The flashbacks and the segments where the main character recited into the recorder felt a little jarring which is why I didn't give it the full five stars, but I'm definitely looking forward to the movie coming out this summer.

Just finished this book and am sorry that it's over. The surprise at the end really got me, even though I had started to suspect something. I loved the fact that it was a wilderness survival story and enjoyed the bond that developed between the two main characters. I'll definitely be checking out this author's other books. Great read!

This was a great book. For a survival story where the ending is usually predictable, this one caught me totally off guard. Once I reached the end of the book I wanted to pick it up and start it over knowing what I now knew.

This was so good! I listened to it and it kept me captivated. I really cared for the characters. I had 20 minutes left on Friday and couldn't get back to it until Monday morning. There is a shocker in the last 20 minutes I did not see coming. This is so good!
