Reviews Latitude Zero
- I don't even recall I how I stumbled upon this book by British author Chorlton. Even now, I think LATITUDE ZERO is one of the best adventure thrillers I've ever read.
- Fine, it might not be a masterpiece in literature but this book is quite thrilling. It's not even the plot - unprepared group - island - problems - tigers - but it is the writing. It won't let you go. Like a well done blockbuster movie, you can picture every scene on a big screen. Defintely a great read.
- It was interesting. But I feel that the ending wasn't very well-crafted. A couple of loose ends left untied. "Latitude Zero" is like the R21 version of "Lord Of The Flies" - realistic, but leaves a bd taste in your mouth.
- It was just an Okay book. I finished like two weeks ago and when I was about to write my review, I have forgotten the detail of the story. It was a fun read but not memorable at all.
- It was ok .......... not really sure what else to say, a few little twists at the end, and prob would make a reasonable film too.
- Predatory and primal...
- an attempt to copy The Beach. Or at leat The Beach did it better.
