August’s book is ‘The beach’ by Alex Garland. I picked this month’s book. I got mightely curious after I saw the trailer for the movie and wanted to read the book first so I choose it for the project. I did watch the movie afterwards and made a comparison. I’ll tell you my findings in my review which should be up in a few days.
After discovering a seemingly Edenic paradise on an island in a Thai national park, Richard soon finds that since civilized behavior tends to dissolve without external restraints, the utopia is hard to maintain.
