    I read everything!

    Good day,
    I'm looking for books with a plot set on deserted islands or in the jungle, such as The Beach.

    Do you know more such books?

    Thanks in advance!

  • I don't know if it's going in your desired direction, but maybe "Thicket" by Scott Smith would be interesting for you. The jungle is not in the foreground here, but I can definitely recommend it. After this book I felt like reading something about the jungle again.

  • The classic in this direction is likely to be Daniel Defoe - "Robinson Crusoe" be.
    What else comes to mind is the book "The blue lagoon" by Henry de Vere Stacpoole and Catharina von Mayer.

    I am also interested in these topics and I will probably also follow this thread, maybe there are a few books for me.

    I read Laymon's "The Island" a little while ago. It was exciting, but rough and too pornographic and crass for me. Dickischt is still on the SUB with me.

    Crime / thriller, psychological thriller, family stories, end times, many of them in the original (English)

    I haven't read it myself yet, but I guess it's only available in used form:

    Shirley Conran, The Island of the Five Women

    Historical novels / crime fiction and short stories, biographies, gay historical, a bit of fantasy

    My suggestion is also a classic. It's very gloomy, though, and wasn't easy fare for me as a teenager. I think I had nightmares about it. But it is always well written. The novel has cult status, and I'm not sure: wasn't it the template for "The Beach" (didn't see the movie)? As far as I know, there is definitely at least one film adaptation.

  • That was the first suggestion after the incoming mail ...

    No, the book the film is based on is called (like the film) The Beach and is from Alex Garland.
