I could not put this book down. It is not a page-turner in the sense of a beach-book read for an easy few hours. It is anything but easy. It is edgy, tense and gives a picture of what the human psyche is all about beneath the trappings and norms and expectations of modern society. The book reveals how easily our carefully constructed society with all its cultural and sexual strata can so easily collapse like a pack of cards when there is no-one to judge, see or punish you for acting on one's instincts and base urges rather than conforming to "accepted" and "civilised" behaviour. These students find themselves stranded outside civilisation and the book offers a chilling insight into what lies potentially within us all. A gripping read and highly recommended.
