The Beach

 

I watched this movie starring Leonardo Dicaprio long before I had heard of the book which I recently found in one of my favourite second-hand bookshops.

Having all the makings of a cult classic, it's a different literary adrenalin rush from the one I usually enjoy but it is the kind of imaginative travel writing I find hard to put down. It's Lord of the Flies and The Magus rolled into one.
