My thoughts: The Mountain Between Us is a really interesting read full of adventure and survival. This book is full of drama and suspense with a twist of romance that all takes place around a plane crash. The setting is described with such detail that it makes it seem so real. The characters are very intriguing and will grab your attention from the first chapter. I will admit that I was unsure about this book and had a lot of doubts before reading. When I found out they were making this book into a movie, I knew I had to read this book to see what all the buzz is about. Overall, I recommend this book for anyone who loves a good romance novel with adventure. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. **
