9780241954508: The Beach
Review:

A gripping adventure, and a fascinating jigsaw ( The Times)

Fresh, fast-paced, compulsive and clever (Nick Hornby)

A white-knuckle ride into the heart of darkness ( Sunday Times)

Lord of the Flies and The Magus lurk at the roots of this novel, but Garland reshapes them with panache into something terrifyingly new ( Mail on Sunday)

A mesmerising, knuckle-clenching read ( Maxim)

Winningly compulsive, brilliantly conceived ( Q)

Garland's prose is stunningly lucid. Addictive and compelling ( Spectator)

A highly confident debut...this incisive novel may well come to be regarded as a defining text in the history of imaginative travel writing ( Daily Telegraph)

Alex Garland is writing a brand new kind of adventure novel. His style is dangerously simple yet altogether captivating (Douglas Rushkoff)

An exceptional first novel...An action novel that provokes subtle responses, The Beach takes in ideas about man's inevitable progress from noble savage to social breakdown (and) the related tradition of nature versus art ( The Times Literary Supplement)

Garland has written a powerful and frighteningly believable novel ( Company)

Precise and speedy prose, with good old-fashioned romantic adventure spiced up with deadpan authorial irony ( Guardian)

From the Publisher:

The classic story of paradise found - and lost.

Richard lands in East Asia in search of an earthly utopia. In Thailand, he is given a map promising an unknown island, a secluded beach - and a new way of life. What Richard finds when he gets there is breathtaking: more extraordinary, more frightening than his wildest dreams.

But how long can paradise survive here on Earth? And what lengths will Richard go to in order to save it?

Descripción Penguin UK Jun 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Estado de conservación: Neu. 180xx mm. Neuware - High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Minimalist music is an originally American genre of experimental or Downtown music named in the 1960s based mostly in consonant harmony, steady pulse (if not immobile drones), stasis and slow transformation, and often reiteration of musical phrases or smaller units such as figures, motifs, and cells. Starting in the early 1960s as a scruffy underground scene in San Francisco alternative spaces and New York lofts, minimalism spread to become the most popular experimental music style of the late 20th century. The movement originally involved dozens of composers, although only four-Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, and, less visibly if more seminally, La Monte Young-emerged to become publicly associated with it in America. In Europe, its chief exponents were Louis Andriessen, Karel Goeyvaerts, Michael Nyman, Gavin Bryars, Steve Martland, Henryk Górecki, Arvo Pärt, and John Tavener. The term 'minimalist music' was derived around 1970 by Michael Nyman from the concept of minimalism, which was earlier applied to the visual arts. For some of the music, especially that which transforms itself according to strict rules, the term 'process music' has also been used. 448 pp. Englisch. Nº de ref. de la librería 9780241954508
