This book is probably the 3rd or 4th different edition of the book that I have read and loved, even though it is, of course, the same old (and I do mean 'old') story and, seemingly, perhaps from another world. The review by 'mogie' is rather a classic in its own rite in finding "many similarities between the time that the book takes place and the present day" because that is the real point to the story - it is a look-back to another time and a realization that tender human emotions and experiences link one generation to another and form great bonds between us as well as keep tugging at our minds to re-live them again. Every time we re-live these experiences, they get more firmly engraved upon our memories and add more to our enjoyment of life. James Hilton was a master at helping us look back and wonder about the past and his "Lost Horizon" is another good example as we may still find ourselves wondering if Conway ever found his way back to Shangri La. He often planted a final seed of doubt and wonder in his stories rather than to imply that he had all the answers himself.
