Aron Ralston recounts his own dramatic survival story in the desert canyons of Utah. While climbing, Aron falls, trapping his hand under a massive boulder. Stranded for almost a week, Aron gives us a glimpse into his psyche during this harrowing experience, as well as a full retelling of his rescue and the steps he took to make it happen. He captures well his frustrations at his predicament, and his pacing is excellent. Even knowing the ending, his reading is suspenseful enough to keep the listener riveted, and his unpolished, guy-next-door presentation makes for an interesting, though graphic, escape.
