    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    Janice says: "Facinating history"
    "An Incridible true story"

    Would you listen to Lost in Shangri-La again? Why?

    Yes, the story was compelling, and the description of the people and the description of the jungle was done extremely well.


    What about Mitchell Zuckoff’s performance did you like?

    He has a great voice with good inflection, he reads his story with passion..


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You can't make up a story like this.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book for all of those history and world war too buffs, it has everything a good novel has, and it is all true. My father served in the army during world war 2 and was stationed on New Guinea that was what originally attracted me to reading this true story, I was not disappointed and have recommended this book to everybody I know.
