Lost Horizon - James Hilton

Have you ever heard of something called "Shangri-la"? The mythical and mystical place hidden at the edge of the Tibetan plateau that has become a synonymous with “paradise on earth”, besides being the name of a well known luxury Asian hotel chain? Well, that’s an invention of James Hilton’s and it’s introduced in his book “Lost horizon”.A group of British and American people are kidnapped somewhere in the far East and brought to a remote area inhabited by a community ruled by a lamasery. The place has some kind of magical property which makes aging a much slower process than it is elsewhere. As it often happens, though, each medal has its own reverse. Read the book and find out about it.
