On Richard's first night in Bangkok, a fellow traveller slits his wrists, leaving Richard a map to "the Beach", where white sands circle a lagoon hidden from the sea, coral gardens and freshwater falls are surrounded by jungle. Richard was looking ...
for adventure, and now he has found it.
i read it ages before watching the movie. <br />i really liked it, there's a thrill in it that never fades, but always grows. i could not stop reading it! and, by the way, i think the movie is very good, as well :D
Liked the book. Fascinated writing with enough tension to keep you reading on and on.It's a while ago when I read this one, but still I know the redline of the story. I watched the movie after reading the book but was dissapointed by the number of

I would recommend this book to all travelers and backpackers.
