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.
