One thing that I've never thought "fit" in this story was how the pilot knocked out the original pilot and then threw him off the plane. Would this be how someone from a place like Shangri la would actually act? It seemed so violent to me, especially considering the battle that was going on on the ground at the time which almost certainly would have meant the death of the original pilot.
If you want to escape to a beautiful place for a while, at least in your mind, this is still a worthwhile read. I like to think that it's true about this being loosely based on the actual people of Hunza in Pakistan. How wonderful to think that there actually is or at least was, a place close to being this idyllic.
"Lost Horizon" is a quick but delightful read, and a page-turner. Hilton's quickly-sketched characters come to life, even as the author builds the suspense. The story is not told in chronological order, and the reader is left to draw his own conclusions about what really happened in a hidden valley, somewhere in Tibet. Highly recommended.
