Book Review of Lost Horizon

Lost Horizon
Lost Horizon
Author: James Hilton
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Hardcover
reviewed Opening a beautiful dimension into Tibet on

This book was originally written in the '30s by James Hilton and began a real-world frenzy to find the true "Shangri-La" (word coined by the author in this novel.)

It is a great adventure with an impressive yet simple writing style. The landscap descriptions can get long-winded at times, but re-read them and you see the beauty of the writing as well as the Himalayas.

A great book overall!
