" The Khao San Road, Bangkok - first stop on the backpacker trail. On Richard`s first night there a fellow traveller slits his wrists, leaving Richard a map to "the Beach".
The Beach is a legend among the young travellers in Asia: white sands circling a lagoon hidden from the sea, coral gardens and freshwater falls surrounded by jungle. In this earthly paradise, it is rumoured, a select community lives i blissful innocence. For Richard, haunted by the glamour of Vietnam war movies, a trek into unknown Thai territory is irresistible. He was looking for adventure. Now he`s found it."

Bought the book in a second hand shop.

Not bad, I was thinking not to read this but, I glad I did. Nice.

Typical book-to-movie book. OK read if you have nothing else to do. The book will go to Sebu or Boracay and be left there.

I found the book at Fastland, Gjøvik, in april 2009.
It was a little bit difficult to read for me, but I liked the book.
Left in Kongsvinger at a gas-station.
