5.0 out of 5 stars The Beach but with snow sports., 29 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Cham (Paperback)
I really loved this book. I first bought it because I read a review somewhere that said it was like the novel The Beach, only set in a ski resort. Actually if anything it is much better than The Beach, but it has a similar sort of darkness at it's heart. People thinking they are leaving normal life and it's problems behind, only to find they can't. I've never been to Chamonix, or skiing or snowboarding, but I feel like I know that world after reading Cham. Its a good gripping read, but there's a lot of hidden depths as well, like the crevices in the glaciers...
