Incredible book! I could barely put it down!
A fast and easy read reminiscent of The Lod of the Flies!
You will love it! Though beware - it will create and urge in you to travel to Thialand immediately!

Weird trippy movie ... based sort-of on the classic novel "Lord of the Flies" with an adult twist.

not a bad watch.
