    This is one of the greatest books ever written. It won James Hilton the Hawthorndon Prize. I first saw the movie (an epic achievement!) when I was a child of ten--I'm 65 now. My mother bought me the book when I was 13. It is a book which has guided me through life. I almost know it by heart. Don't miss either the book or the movie--the first movie. Don't settle for a remake. Don't expect flash and action. You may have to work for the true meaning, but it is there. You will find peace and incredible beauty. Go to Shangri-La. You will never want to leave.

    i first saw the movie 'lost horizon' when i was just a kid...it made an impression on me that has lasted my whole life time..i have just finished re reading the book, and truthfully it may, at first glance, seem rather boring..but if you persist, you get drawn into shang-ri-la just as the hero, conway was...i guess i will just have to keep reading until i totally grasp the reason he turned his back on the honor of 'high lama'...i am assuming it was because his friend, the young englishman wanted to leave so badly that he was totally upsetting the equilibrium of shang-ri-la badly enough that conway just gave up and took him away...however, conways redemption is the fact that, apparently he intends to return, and has undertaken the return journey...the reader sincerely hopes and believes he returned ....
