Clarke said The Castaways “promises to be an incredible adaptation; the scriptwriting is electric, and Sheridan and Céline are perfectly cast as Lori and Erin.” Several people go on holiday to a Fijian island resort. The sister of one of the passengers misses the flight....but then the plane just disappears. No sight or trace of the passengers or plane are found. the sister decides to take matters into her own hands... This book is a definite MUST read! It is tense and so incredibly well written that it is hard to stop reading. The idea of being stranded on a desert island with nothing but the vast ocean and an endless horizon is intimidating in itself. Add to that the uncertainty that you will ever be rescued, the arduous nature of battling to survive with little food, and you have a chilling thriller that has nothing to do with adventure but everything to do with desperation, resilience and the dark side of being human.

The series is part of Paramount+’s strategy to commission 150 international originals by 2025, and will debut exclusively on the service in the UK. THE CASTAWAYS is the second Lucy Clarke adaptation planned for the service, alongside NO ESCAPE, which is available on Paramount+ UK from May 18th. Onboard the flight are the pilot, the flight attendant, an elderly couple, a young mother with a baby, two men, and Lori. Their fear is palpable when they realize the plane is going down. The pilot manages to crash land the aircraft on one of the many small, uninhabited islands in the Pacific that surround Fiji. Four of the passengers died in the crash. From this frightening beginning, the tension and fear accelerate, becoming pulse-pounding and almost unbearable.

About Lucy Clarke

If there’s one genre I can always read in one sitting, it’s survival/disaster novels. Lucy Clarke’s The Castaways brings to life the unimaginable fear of a plane disaster and the grief and perseverance that come with it. The island setting, the mystery and the dual time line as we learn about the passengers fates was a lot of fun. Reminded me in places of that wild feeling I had when reading The Beach. With recent plane disappearances in the news, this had a feeling of being strangely relevant and timely. The book is split into past and present sections, and there are harrowing descriptions of what happened with the plane, the aftermath. Everything described so vividly that I felt as though I was there, and may end up dreaming about it tonight as a result. Omg that was one breath taking book, that had hold of me from the second I started it until I finished it barely letting me pause for breathe. It is addictive and kept me guessing throughout. The plane veers off course and crashes into a remote island. As the days pass, the survivors come to realise any hope of rescue is fading. With their plight now desperate, a fight for survival ensues — survival not only from the elements but from one another.

Months later, with no plane or survivors having been found, Lori’s credit card is suddenly used in a corner shop in a remote village in Fiji, and on CCTV Erin recognises the plane’s pilot. She sets out on a journey to find him and discover the mystery of what happened to her sister. It was great to be on that Fiji island and I was reminded of the novel The Beach in many ways. The sense of remoteness, loss, fear and survival really is well done. The way in which paradise suddenly goes very dark indeed and in ways you might not expect…. was fun to read.

Diaries & Calendars

I really enjoyed this book, the mystery of what happened to Lori, the plane and the other people on board. At the heart of the book is the love and bond the sisters have for one another. Erin now finds herself scrambling as the news breaks. Lori’s plane has disappeared without a trace… Two years later, Erin takes matters into her own hands and is on a mission to find out what happened to her sister and the rest of the passengers.

Dystopian Fiction Books Everyone Should Read: Explore The Darker Side of Possible Worlds and Alternative Futures Some chapters describe Erin in the present, two years after the plane was lost. She is consumed with guilt about abandoning her sister in Fiji and misses her desperately. When the pilot turns up in Fiji two years after the plane and passengers disappeared, Erin wants to interview him in hopes of discovering what happened and of Lori's fate. Erin works as a journalist, a job she dislikes, but convinces her boss to allow her to go on assignment and cover the story. The pilot has been working in Fiji under an assumed name and has a brain condition interfering with his memory. Gripping, twisty and full of sun-soaked atmosphere, THE CASTAWAYS will whisk you far away to the island – and never let you go. Everyone’s talking about the hottest thriller for 2021: I kept trying to predict or second guess the outcome but I just couldn't wouldn't have come up with how it turned out, in a million years.

Sisters, Lori and Erin, have an unforgettable holiday planned, in Fiji. The night before their plane was due to transport them from the mainland to one of the remote islands they have a terrible fight and only one sister boards the plane. This sister, as well as the pilot, the seven other passengers, and the vessel carrying them, are never seen again. Superb premise, 2 Sisters on their way to Fiji for a holiday, 1 misses the flight, the flight that turns into a disaster Two years ago Lori's flight never arrived at its destination. Her sister Erin was meant to be on the flight, but didn't take it. Two years later Erin is still trying to discover the truth, and without any idea where the plane came down, no bodies she can't get any closure. She is dogged in her pursuit of trying to find out just what happened. This deft thriller is as emotionally intelligent on the complex dynamic between sisters as it is compulsive. I stayed up way too late to finish it’ Kate Riordan The story races along and takes you for quite the ride if you excuse the pun. I was totally invested as we follow each sister as one gets on the plane and one doesn’t. The story both before and after that fateful day merges together slowly to reveal quite the mix of events! There are secrets and more secrets which flood out as you discover what happened. What did happen to the sisters, the passengers, that plane and the pilot?
