    A book that observes the best, most interesting bits of the author s friend and fellow climber, Mo That s why I like feeding the rat It s a sort of annual check up on myself The rat is you, really It s the other you, and it s being fed by the you you think you really are But to snuf...

    The best mountain climbing book I have read after the incomparable Into Thin Air.

    One of those superb books where the author keeps three platers spinning at once the subject s, the subject s area of expertise, and the author s relationship with the subject.

    Quick and engaging insight into climbers and climbing Being one myself I identify with Mo and I loved hearing about his attitude to climbing Also enjoyed the stories of his exploits and it got me thinking about the different desires and outcomes from adventures Definitely worth a read.

    Short, breezy portrait of one of thediscreet members of the British climbing establishment in the 1970s and 80s Mo Anthoine did not have the notoriety of his climbing partners Joe Brown, Chris Bonington and Doug Scott, but he was involved in many key achievements in the Alps and Himalayas of that time Alvarez account is anecdotal and reveals a rather two dimensional portrait of an imperturbable and dead pan personality I felt Anthoine to remain an enigma As an entertaining collection Short, breezy portrait of one of thediscreet members of the British climbing establishment in the 1970s and 80s Mo Anthoine did not have the notoriety of his climbing partners Joe Brown, Chris Bonington and Doug Scott, but he was involved in many key achievements in the Alps and Himalayas of that time Alvarez account is anecdotal and reveals a rather two dimensional portrait of ...

    I just finished The White Spider, which made me realize I never reviewed this book Feeding the Rat is an account of the life of Mo Anthoine, an expert climber who s driven to climb for the joy of it and the need to test a certain part of himself The author manages to bring Mo s wit, sense of absurdity, and enthusiasm to the text, making you wish you could join them on every expedition This book was pretty much the opposite of The Whit...

    What I took away from reading this book pursuing your life s passions isimportant than the promise of future security, so live your life while you ve still got it Simplistic, I know, but that s what it boiled down to for me.

    Excellent succinct account of Mo Anthoine s mountaineering life Tragically cut short by illness aged only 50 I will continue the rat feeding for a fewyears myself, it doesn t seem to be getting any less hungry

    Fun, easy read about climber Mo Antoine and mountain climbing as a passtime, as opposed to professional sport It made my rat hungery.
