Got my spin number for Classics Spin #31

 My spin number is 2, which means I have to read Paul Theroux's The Mosquito Coast by 30 October.

In a breathtaking adventure story, the paranoid and brilliant inventor Allie Fox takes his family to live in the Honduran jungle, determined to build a civilization better than the one they've left. Fleeing from an America he sees as mired in materialism and conformity, he hopes to rediscover a purer life. But his utopian experiment takes a dark turn when his obsessions lead the family toward unimaginable danger.

I'm looking forward to this one. And it's a movie, so that'll be fun!
