Thanks Alex for sharing this awesome post. This Wild Coast is really wonderful.

When a book is just the right one for the right place at the right time, so I first read Salaman Rushdie’s « Midnight children » in Kashmir in 1984; Jo Nesbo’s « Redbreast » in Finnmark, north Norway; Paul Theroux’s « Great Railway Bazaar » on the rails in India in 1986; Per Pettersen’s « Out Stealing Horses » on the swedish/norwegian borders; Peter Mathiesson’s « The Snow Leopard » in Ladakh etc etc.
And I am a great believer in reading a good crime novel before you visit a country for the first time/long time since, as it will tell you just as much about the real culture as a good guide book.

Agreed! We love ‘The Snow Leopard’ too, and Ladakh for that matter. Maybe this should have been a top 10.
