    Epub Lost Horizon PDF ß î babylon 5.co lost epub, horizon mobile, 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 subseuently become an official in the British Government His job is sort of m

    Epub Lost Horizon PDF ß î babylon 5.co lost epub, horizon mobile, 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 esue yarn in which depression era westerners find themselves in a version of paradise The place is rather communistic with elements of free love that no doubt raised some eyebrows when it was published On the other hand the place is run by a Belgian cleric On the other hand their motto is all things in moderation even ethics It was a fun uick read and is recommended for anyone who enjoys 19th century

    Epub Lost Horizon PDF ß î babylon 5.co lost epub, horizon mobile, 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 esue 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 is prattle on abou

    Epub Lost Horizon PDF ß î babylon 5.co lost epub, horizon mobile, 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 ultimately like it well enough to give it three stars and found it thought provoking on various levelsIt's a somewhat challenging book to review and even to classify With regard to the latter point I finally settled on science fiction for its genre though it's very unlike most American SF from that era Nor does it fit into the lost race tradition popular on both sides of the Atlantic before and between the World Wars But it does have a central speculative element to its plot the idea of long extension of human life though not actual immortality nor anything like it by purely natural means This element is suarel

    Epub Lost Horizon PDF ß î babylon 5.co lost epub, horizon mobile, 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 this one is obsessed with how romantic and wise they are Both are dumbIt indulges shamelessly in adolescent wish ful
