didn t save any of it I spent a great deal of time thinking about this work to share with others and because the owner of this website doesn t fix these timeouts this is not even the fifth time such a loss has happened to me , whatever flaw that makes this occur, needs to be remedied to continue to ignore it is disrespectful to all parties Shame on those who are responsible.The author is highly skilled in utilizing a powerful style and incorporating dynamic figure of speech and light in descriptive language There is a map that is included and it is hard to read which is an issue for the search as well The pictures that begin each chapter are in black and white, making them very hard to decipher so the beauty and their value is not fully realized.This book is good, it delves deep into the main personalities of the story, primarily a father and son who bonded by their adventures The son goes missing and many involved drop the ball when it came to locating him The first portion of the book recounts the various adventures father lived, father and son lived and the son alone undertook with others or by himself.Guilt encompasses the father and he explains in great detail how he failed Lots of detail also shared in how he questioned what he could have done better Any parent would be examining the minute details of how things could have been prevented For anyone who has lost a child, there will be a great understanding of the emotions and questioning that ensued It was well written but much to detailed for a person, who is not an outdoors person I was once very active in outdoor sports and even I found my mind wondering Those who know this family, they are famous in extreme sports circles will probably find this detail quite enthralling It was a good read, while there is some similarity to Into the Wild , which is part of the marketing of this story, they are two different stories and not all that similar The parallel is that some adventures took place in Alaska in both books and both encountered severe consequences at the hand of nature.I received this book free of charge in a Goodreads giveaway, in exchange for an honest opinion Thank you to Mr Dial, author,

July 2014 he started out He told his family that he planed to go through the Jungle in four days and be out on the fifth day.There s a saying when in Rome do as the Romans do Cody had lots of confidence so he forged ahead not following the rules of the National Forest in Costa Rica You had to have a guide and stay on the designated trails.After a week had passed his family had not heard from him They were so worried Was he kidnapped Was there foul play Did some one kill him Who had seen him With all unanswered questions, his father went to Costa Rica to look for his son.All their efforts were fruitless When his remains were found everything was intactno foul play It was assumed a tree fell on him or he was bitten by a poisonous snake.A very sad and poignant story After trudging through 25% of this highly anticipated book, with all the great blurbs by peers such as Jon Krakauer, I had to quit reading it The backstory Dial was providing was all about Dial and how hard he worked teaching his son Cody the ways of the wild It is unfortunate that Roman did not begin the book with his search for his lost son Throughout what can only be imagined as an agonizing operation

Krakauer, I had to quit reading it The backstory Dial was providing was all about Dial and how hard he worked teaching his son Cody the ways of the wild It is unfortunate that Roman did not begin the book with his search for his lost son Throughout what can only be imagined as an agonizing operation he could have provided the necessary backstory details to emphasize the preparedness provided by Roman for his son to survive in the most extreme environments I could not help feeling the book was written to assuage a father s guilt for losing his son I cannot imagine how hard this was on Roman, but he supposedly wrote a book about it But all I gathered by reading a quarter of it was how great an outdoorsman and father Roman Dial was And that is not good enough for me In fact, the book was a bore In his new memoir, The Adventurer s Son, Roman Dial writes about his son s 2014 disappearance in the untamed rainforest of Costa Rico Roman is an Alaskan biologist, mountaineer, and overall fan of risky travels and adventures He shared his love of these endeavors with his son Cody and now he experiences a parent s most dreaded fear after his son fails to report back after a particularly treacherous solo hike in the remote jungle.While slow moving, this is a harrowing story of a parent s worst In his new memoir, The Adventurer s Son, Roman Dial writes about his son s 2014 disappearance in the untamed rainforest of Costa Rico Roman is an Alaskan biologist, mountaineer, and overall fan of risky travels and adventures He shared his love of these endeavors with his son Cody and now he experiences a parent s most dreaded fear after his son fails to report back after a particularly treacherous solo hike in the remote jungle.While slow moving, this is a harrowing story of a parent s worst nightmare The Adventurer s Son has me conflicted When I am of acharitable mind I sympathize with Roman s plight Having your son be missing and to not know where they are can be crushing On this level Dial s book is emotional, exhausting and heart rending When I am not feeling quit so charitable I have to question just what the heck is the allure of putting yourself in such dangerous circumstances to begin with Costa Rican rainforests are renowned for their poisonous spiders, centipedes, millipedes, scorpions, snakes, frogs, and fancy iced coffee lattes If by God s grace you manage to avoid the toxic death of these you will be faced with crocodiles, jaguars, pumas, giant ants, mimes, and Bon Jovi cover bands And that is not all Let s talk about the criminals that inhabit these lands These remote areas contain everything from jaywalkers to litterbugs, to the feared drug traffickers who would sooner fill you with hot lead from their AR 15 assault rifles than loan their neighbor a much needed cup of beans so they can finish cooking up thegallo pinto dinner they have planned for Thursday So on this level while still sympathizing this tragedy seems like something that could have easily been avoided I equate it with the guy who rides his motorcycle without a helmet, or the NFL player who has chosen to play the big game against the Packers without an athletic cup You would never wish harm to happen to anyone, but let s be honest, nobody is going to be surprised when those testicles get mashed Still it is hard to argue with Dial s love for his son and the pain he experiences during this ordeal The pictures of Dial and his son from an infant on are heartbreaking This book is sure to make the reader consider their own life choices and perhaps wonder where but for the grace of God a tragedy like this could have happened to them I easily give this book five stars It is an amazing book The adventurous life described in this book, of both the father and son, was made a fascinating read I loved the colorful descriptions of life in the wilderness Their relationship described was heartwarming My heart broke for the father in his search for his missing son But, he never gave up until he got his answer It s a memoir I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good read.

words legendary adventurer Roman Dial received from his son, before the 27 year old disappeared into the jungles of Costa Rica I already knew the general ending to the mystery as to what happened to Roman s son I felt I understood the mixed negative criticism, before I started this book Negative reviews said things like the father was too self absorbed in himself, not my experience , and the book was too long with irrelevant stories I still wanted to read it The positive reviews moved me I was willing to go into this book contemplating the praise and criticism.wanting to draw my own conclusions So.I conclude I LOVED the INTIMACY of the storytelling right away.I enjoyed the journey becomes heartbreaking.but it was also another one of those self reflecting books where we take measure of thyself on an array of subjects our families, marriage, births, education, arts, nature, adventures, our successes and failures, and..once again seems to be a theme in my reading lately..on not only parenting..but the parent adult child relationship I absolutely love what one reviewer said by Jamie L Harmon The message of this tale is that no matter how we try to assume involvement or responsibility in certain devastating events, the truth is ultimately revealed each person walks his or her unique path from beginning to end The arc of a life is a toss of a cosmic loom, weaving the fabric of reality An incredible story compelling and moving.Thank you Jamie L Harmon AMEN Other tidbits I enjoyed the irreverent storieslike how PhD programs are poorly paid who could raise a family on that salary.LOVED THE FAMILY I was interested in all of them Roman, his wife Peggy, and the adventures with their children I enjoyed learning about each of the family members idiosyncrasies Oh, and the descriptions of the outdoor nature adventures amazingbirds, monkeys, bugs, the jungle, and everything wilderness.I was deeply moved by the humanity and a father s love for his son It s fair to make comparisons with this book and Jon Krakauer s Into the Wild Both books are unforgettable stories of family, adventures, tragedy, and love Wonderful as an Audiobook I was interested in this book because I love Krakauer who blurbed it and I guess helped edit and part of the reason I love Krakauer is because my brother is an outdoorsman risk taker adventurer type, and I am so not So I m always seeking to understand the whys and the hows of this way of life Thus, when I read these books there is always the judgy voice in my head saying, are you f ing nuts, why in a world with so many natural, everyday risks, would you, say, as in this particular book, I was interested in this book because I love Krakauer who blurbed it and I guess helped edit and part of the reason I love Krakauer is because my brother is an outdoorsman risk taker adventurer type, and I am so not So I m always seeking to understand the whys and the hows of this way of life Thus, when I read these books there is always the judgy voice in my head saying, are you f ing nuts, why in a world with so many natural, everyday risks, would you, say, as in this particular book, hike alone across the damn Costa Rican rainforest But I get that for some people, like my brother, it s just like, I HAVE TO OR I WILL DIE But there were just so many problems here For a book that purports to be about a father grappling with his guilt, he really didn t grapple much, and the few times he did, he let himself off the hook within the space of one sentence Again, thinking of my brother, the idea that Dial did not notice the email from his son with his planned outdate would be something that would torment me for the rest of my life My brother texts his outdates and whom to contact if he does not return to me and my mom and we pretty much suffer until we hear from him again That date is, like, really on our minds, you know I get that the senior Dial is an adventurer himself, but wouldn t that make himattentive to this kind of information HIS SON WAS ALONE IN THE RAINFOREST I don t know how much of this was a failure of the writing While the narrative was brisk, there was something lacking, almost total flatness, when Dial was describing feelings, e.g., Peggy s bravery in the deep water and jungle amplified her beauty and strengthened my love and admiration for her Just, no Human emotion is hard to write There was a reliance on cliche here that became hard to forgive He insisted upon this perfect love for his son, when there is no perfect love, even between parent and child, and especially when the child disappears as a grown man In a book about said child s long unexplained absence and death, I became increasingly desperate for nuance that never came Petty aside it was also weird how Peggy threatened Alaska Democratic Senator at the time Mark Begich by telling him she was going to vote Republican when he was unable to get the New Mexico National Guard to deploy to Costa Rica to search for a grown man who made his own dangerous choices I understood her desperation to find her son, but is Lisa Murkowski a ghost This book called itself a thorough examination, but nothing felt honestly examined It was mostly a play by play and maybe that s enough for some people Maybe I m being too harsh, I don t know There was a hubris to these men, both father and son, and a lack of imagination both in the wilderness and on the page
