«Wonderful. Rum Doodle does for mountaineering what Three Men in a Boat did for Thames-going or Catch-22 did for the Second World War. It is simply an account of the leader of an expedition up Rum Doodle, a 40,000 and a half foot peak in the Himalayas, in the same way that Scoop is simply a tale about newsgathering in Africa. The tone is nearer to Pooter than anyone else I can think of, but the flavour is all W.E. Bowman's own.»

Sunday Times

«I just love this book. Everything about it is nearly perfect... hugely enjoyable and brilliantly sustained.»

Bill Bryson

«Exceedingly funny... as if the hero of Diary of a Nobody had, in a mood of abandon, turned to mountaineering.»

Dublin Magazine

«it is an epic. It is Homeric. It is inspiring. It is very, very funny... Read it and be moved.»
