“Samsara: Simply said, I just love this book! This thrilling mix of Fear and Loathing in the Himalayas, Shantaram and The Snow Leopard draws you deep into the mysteries of Nepal and Tibet. I joined author David Abramczyk on a recent mountaineering expedition of Makalu, 5th highest mountain in the world. We enjoyed one another’s company, climbing together on several occasions, and I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of his amazing debut novel.
I dove into Samsara on a subsequent voyage into the Arctic Circle under the light of the midnight sun. Days of breath-taking landscape past by unnoticed as I got hooked on Samsara after the first few pages! The adventure transports you from the dirty underworld of France to the noisy backstreets of Kathmandu and then shifts into the rugged terrain of Far Western Nepal, a pristine isolated region of the Himalayas.
Having experienced the magic of these mountains on many occasions, I wanted to follow the protagonist Jupiter and his motley crew on their odyssey as deep-hidden secrets became unlocked and climb that final mountain pass into the great unknown. Samara instantly brings back the vibrant atmosphere of Nepal and touches on a dark chapter of the Cold War during which Tibetan guerillas were covertly trained by the CIA to fight against Chinese occupation. Ultimately Jupiter escapes his repressed past and finds his redemption in the remotest corner in the world – reverberating an eternal theme of human existence. I would suggest this book to anybody who wants to join an unforgettable adventure in the Himalayas and look forward to the release of Samsara, the movie!”
