The Beach...

...I really have to follow up on my previous post about "The Beach"...I just re-watched the movie and it's *nothing* *like* the book! In fact, it's like someone read it (while drunk) then, 5 years later, tried to explain it to you (while on amphetamines) only remembering half the characters (oh and the setting, but then the clue for that is in the name), and then got the rest completely wrong (by confusing it with a holiday they once had in Ibiza)...

What a load of toilet (especially the video-game sequences and re-invented relationships)...

Read the book...
