    This book is a gem It’s a spoof on every mountaineering expedition book or documentary you’ve ever read or watched There are so many uotable absurdities that I wouldn’t know where to start and the illustrations are just as much fun as the book It’s always funny sometimes even laugh out loud funny which isn’t something I experience often If you enjoy off the wall British humour then this is for you especially i

    The Ascent of Rum Doodle is a jaunty parody of inept mountaineers who couldn’t organise a raffle at a village fete let alone master the 40000 and a half ft climb to the peak of ‘Rum Doodle’These ‘professionals’ have the most

    As someone who has paged through the expedition diaries of than one Victorian explorer I found a lot to like about The Ascent of Rum Doodle a satire of those very types of people and their writing But even if you haven’t has the pleasure of reading much in that genre you may still find something to like withinLed by Binder a man desperat

First published in 1956 The Ascent of Rum Doodle uickly became established as a mountaineering classic As an outrageously funny spoof about the ascent of a 40. The second funniest work of fiction I have ever read It s a good example of British surrealism The British never really regarded surrealism as a serious artform and most examples of British surrealism are in fact strange comedies with no especial interest in the concerns of the original Surrealists Freudian psychology automatic writing unpalatable honesty regarding sexual desires etcThis novel stands comparison with Three Men in a Boat or Diary of a Nobody but it s much extreme and silly and ingenious An expedition composed of misfits attempts to climb Rum Doodle which at forty thousand and a half feet is the highest mountain in the world First published in 1956 The Ascent of Rum Doodle has been reprinted several times but still remains relatively unknown which is a shameI have just reread this novel for the third time September 2017 It is very rare that I read books twice let alone three times I guess that it has become my comfort book one that can be read and read again and again I still regard it as a tremendous comedy

review The Ascent of Rum Doodle

The Ascent of Rum Doodle

000 and a half foot peak many thought it inspired by the 1953 conuest of Everest But Bowman had drawn on the flavour and tone of earlier adventures of Bill Ti. I have to be really honest about this book I couldn t enjoy it To be honest Bowman s style of writing it is really tiring and I was often drifting with my focus on the book Although I have to say that s probably my problem and not Bowman s As a matter of fact his writing is surprisingly good and very well polished What I did not like about the book it s the fact that almost every part of it seems like a sitcom everything is happening and nothing seems to happen The characters are dull and very much two dimensional even the main character Maybe my rating it s very personal however I must say that I don t think The Ascent of Rum Doodle a bad or bad written book Only it didn t work for me
