Lost Horizon by James Hilton book review

Jolly good story about Shangri-La Monastery in Tibet mountains. Communal living in moderation. Away from all VACKED PEOPLE, away from incomprehensible CORPORATE CAPITAL system of fake money, away from FBI, away from corrupt LE, away from paid-off goon squad, away from stalker spook assassins, away from fake money forces of all kinds.

A great way to spend your life.

SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM THE WICKED.

Enjoy yourself at Shangri-La.

Maybe you’ll live a good long life if you have the correct haplotype.
