    I liked this classic because the idea for the story was amazing I never thought it was predictable The Tibetan monastery and landscape were vivid The ideas in the book grabbed me and were interesting James Hilton wrote a wonderful story and was able to make his characters live I liked the way he chose them and put them together Most of all did I like that there wa

    The main character, Conway, and the monastery, Shangri La, are now part of everyday speech Everyone should read the quite short story behind it It is extremely well written in the turn of the century 20th style Authors today could do worse that take James Hilton s prose as a guideline Other reviewers have criticized the lack of character development of Conway s fellow

    Icebreaker is an excellent product but thanks to one of your reviews the person was right that they are cut small, if you areaware of that they fit fine, quality is excellent All the finger trainers are good and I find it good to switch between them.

    Lost Horizon is an interesting short novel that is worth reading Whilst it has a dated feel to it and an abrupt ending, it is a thought provoking story, particularly in light of the historical context in which it was written However, do not buy the Dead Authors Society hardback edition, which appears to have been made by copying another edition of the book the cover is blurry and the text is

    This is a very good book a fascinating story, which I will not spoil, told with good use of English without the ponderous, verbose style many authors of the period adopt , a gentle moral about moderation in all things leading to harmony and comfort and a huge dollop of prescience it foresees worldwide severe disruption and calamity but it was published in 1933, when the Nazis had only just come

    The overall plot was good and it was well written and engaging The characters were acceptable apart from the youngest member of the group, Mallinson, whom I feel needed a damn good slap A spoilt, precocious brat who, quite honestly, got on my nerves and ultimately spoilt the story.
