    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBThe last time I loved a book as much as I loved this one was when I read Dune Even though Dune is considered one of the masterworks of science fiction I'm not really a sci fi kind of girl per se I just love places that are so well imagined by the author that you can't believe they're not real SOMEWHERE Lost Horizon presents Shangri La as such a place More personally though I read this book at the precise right moment in my life Conway the main character has a sort of dispassionate detachment from life as a result of having fought in WWI the story takes place right after the stock market crash and has subsequently beco

    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBThis is a fun read They did a pretty good job with the film Given that Hilton was a major screenwriter that makes sense It is very Victorian in its feel a sort of Kipling esque yarn in which depression era westerners find themselves

    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBFor the life of me I have no idea why anyone dearly loves this book The narrative is plodding the characters boring and unsympathetic and the ending don't get me started on the ending This was a book club selection that I was actually excited about since its setting is the mystical Shangri La I thought it would be an Indiana Jones esque action and adventure in an exotic Asian setting What I got instead was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Boring Tibetans There's no action all they do

    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBWellI wasn't exactly blown away by it Four westerners are on their way to Peshawar in an aircraft when their pilot takes them to the mountains of Tibetwhere the aircraft crashesThey are rescued and taken to a lamaseryIt does have some beautiful writingwhen describing the mountain scenery For a whileI remained fairly interested to know why the four people were brought to Shangri LaBut when the mystery was revealedit felt pretty non sensical to me It also took away the rather favourable impression of the book I had till thenThe lack of action didn't help eitherAs a fantasyit didn't appeal to menor as a vision of utopia And as for the horrors of one war World War I and the possibility of anotherthe description isn't powerful enough to leav

    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBLike some other books this is one that I read only because it was picked as a common read in one of my Goodreads groups While I'd heard of it before it had never struck me as something I wanted to read In some cases books I read this way proved to be five star reads This one didn't impress me to that extent but I did ulti

    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBLost Horizons is a very silly dumb book but charming and fun for all thatIt's racist and sexist in that casual and unmalicious way that you see in like Mad Men The hard mocking sex thirsty voices of women are mentioned at one point and the inhabitants of Shangri La are described as cleaner and handsomer than the average Chinese Compare it to Sax Rohmer's The Insidious Dr Fu Manchu from 30 years previous that book is obsessed with the danger of cunning diabolical Chinamen while

    Lost Horizon eBook ´ Paperback lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBIt wasn't until I finished the story and read the Afterword that I realized that this book was written by the same guy who wrote Goodbye Mr Chips another story I had pretty much put out of my mind Much I think like I expect to happen with this oneSo okay here's Shangri La We all know the name but this is where it started And that's fine Shangri La is this utopian society place in the Himalayan area where the inhabitants are almost immortal It's supposed to be this perfect society essentially created out of moderation which is bogus right because moderation is boring and c'mon haven't we all agreed that nearly immortal longevity is a real drag?But Shangri La has other good stuff apparently like toilets and libraries so it's not all bad It's just not my thing I don't want to live foreverIt's a cute story but just like Goodbye Mr Chips was a cute story By cute I mean sort of annoying Hilton was an average
