Product description


‘A gripping read about the rows, romances and everything else that went down on Taransay’ -- Heat


This is the full, in-depth story of one extraordinary year - a year in which 32 people set off to build a self-sustaining community in the far reaches of the Hebrides. Only 25 remained by December 2000. They were totally isolated from their previous lives, their families and the trappings of the modern world. Except for one thing - their progress was watched by audiences of eight million. Mark McCrum visited the island frequently and became a confidante to many of the castaways. He heard the inside track on their arguments, grievances, and insecurities. He heard who was supposed to be flirting with who, who was intimidating who, who had lost his temper, which castaways were conducting illicit romances, who were considered to be 'TV Tarts' and who was taking secret phone calls on top of a mountain from a forbidden mobile phone. The hardback edition moved into the bestseller lists faster than a Castaway after a Mars Bar. This new paperback edition includes two whole new chapters - covering their departure from the island, their plans for the future, the media reaction to their return, Trish and Trevor's baby, Tammy's new-found happiness and Ben's romances. One fantastic summer read...
