Unfortunately, it's fiction

I think it's unfortunate that the author, who had a good idea, decided to deceive readers into thinking the events of the book actually happened. This is a shameful hoax. And very profitable to Mortensen. Parents should inform their children that this book is a fiction - and worse, a sham. "Mortenson has been criticized by writers such as Peter Hessler and Jon Krakauer for financial mismanagement of his charity, for 'dodging accountability' and for writing a book Krakauer described as 'riddled with lies.'
