'The first I heard of the beach was in Bangkok, on the Khao San Road'. I was innocent then, and never imagined that a small map could cause so much trouble. I just wanted an experience, and boy did I get one. You see, 'I've never grown out of playing pretend'; my imagination is vivid and can sometimes play tricks on me. But I was responsible for leading Zeph and Sammy to their deaths, and I killed Christo to save Jed. The beach nearly drove me crazy, and I was one of the lucky ones. Who am I?
It all began when my girlfriend and I stayed at the same guest house as Richard. Although we hadn't officially met then, 'we exchanged nods as we passed in the corridor'. It was I who turned the idea of finding the beach into a possibility. On arriving at the beach I joined the fishing detail and life was perfect. But everything changed for me once Sten was killed by the shark. Christo was dying and I wanted to take him and Karl to Ko Samui to seek medical attention. But my pleas fell on deaf ears. I knew then that it was time to leave. Who am I?
I was one of the first three to find the island and it is with my map that this story all began. I once stayed at the same guest house as Richard and I also killed myself there. Despite this, I continued to exist - you could say that I haunted people's thoughts, particularly Richard's. I always seemed to appear whenever things were about to take a turn for the worst. Who am I?
I am a bilingual and rather attractive European woman, who finds it easy to get the attention of men. On my wrist I have a tiny dolphin tattoo, which is half-hidden by my watch-strap, and I am a strong swimmer. Although I have a boyfriend, I was drawn to Richard, and we have shared a passionate kiss. On arriving at the beach I settled in quickly and soon made friends. Following the drama involving the Swedes, I didn't know initially if I wanted to leave the island. But in the end, I chose my boyfriend over the beach. Who am I?
Along with my companion, I first met Richard at Chaweng beach when I was locked out of my hut. I was a fun-loving and intelligent person, with white blonde hair. I never put tobacco in my joints, for fear of getting addicted to smoking, and I was an American Harvard student studying law. I made it as far as the dope fields but the guards of the plantation caught me and my companions and we were shot. Who am I?
I was born in South Africa, and before I discovered the beach I was a carpenter by trade. I was much respected on the island as I ran the carpenters and I was also Sal's boyfriend. I took myself 'extremely seriously' and considered myself to be very masculine. I never asked for help if I could help it, as I did not wish to appear weak. Who am I?
'If there was a leader' on the island, then I suppose it was me. Whenever I spoke, people listened. I spent my days wandering around the lagoon, 'checking on the different work details and making sure things were running smoothly'. I was the organiser, the "mother" if you like. I made hard decisions for the good of everyone on the island. I was a master of lies and I never relaxed. The only time I ever smoked or drank was during Tet. During the rest of the year my mind was always clear. Who am I?
I was the one who escorted Richard, Étienne and Françoise to the camp when they first arrived. Unlike the other members of the island, I didn't have a particular work detail. My days were usually spent alone, and I was 'usually the first person to leave in the mornings and the last person to come back'. I was constantly alert and acted as the guardian of the beach. I was also good friends with Unhygienix. My golden rule is that the 'first thing to do when you arrive some place is find out how you can get out again'. I stayed with Christo as he lay dying, and it was then that I finally became disillusioned with the beach. Who am I?
I first met Richard at Chaweng beach when my friend and I lost the key for our beach hut. I was an American with yellow blonde hair, and before my demise I studied Afro-American Literature at Harvard University. I never made it to the beach alive, only as far as the dope fields. I was captured and killed by the guards who patrol the marijuana plantation. Who am I?
I was invited to the beach by Sal, who asked me if I was 'interested in being taken to Paradise'. I enjoy playing on the Nintendo Game Boy and I was originally put on gardening detail. Eventually though, I was transferred to the fishing detail, which I adored until I accidentally poisoned half the camp with dead squid. 'I went to church every Sunday until I was fifteen' and I consider Richard a close friend. Who am I?
