    ePUB usobet.co ☆ Lost Horizon MOBI ↠ lost pdf, horizon free, Lost Horizon ePUBIn 1931 four people including Glory Conway escape the political unrest in Baskul China by boarding a plane bound for Peshawar The plane however much to their dismay has been hijacked and eventually crash lands deep in the far reaches of the Tibetan Himalayas Seeking shelter the group soon finds themselves in the valley of the blue moon guests at a lamasery called Shangri LaReading this is like stepping slowly into a hot fragrant bath while strains of your own audio preferences delight; lapping against your tired muscles as you immerse yourself deep within its hypnotic scent Even silence has a melody Though I have no specific memory of having read this before or having seen the movie Hilton’s story is very familiar to me More legend really it transcends its medium provoking deep meaningful thought on spirituality love and life’s purp

    ePUB usobet.co ☆ Lost Horizon MOBI ↠ 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 subseuently become an official in the British Government His job is sort of middle management not a great deal of responsibilit

    ePUB usobet.co ☆ Lost Horizon MOBI ↠ 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 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 about how perfect existence in Shangri La is so perfect in fact it's painfully boring to read about The d

    ePUB usobet.co ☆ Lost Horizon MOBI ↠ 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 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 th

    ePUB usobet.co ☆ Lost Horizon MOBI ↠ 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 this one is obsessed with how romantic and wise they are Both are dumbIt indulges shamelessly in adolescent wish fulfillment just an inordinate number of pages given over to explaining never showing how wise and interesting its hero Conway is It's certainly one of those books that threatens to make your eyes roll right out of your head Here's a great passageConrad's love demanded nothing not ev
