Mild Obscenities & Substitutions - 2 Incidents
The word "d*mn" is used throughout the book. "H*llish" is used once.
Violence - None
Conversation Topics - 4 Incidents
This is a philosophical book, so toys with some questions of right and wrong, religion (Christianity, Catholicism, Buddhism), longevity and it's ramifications, the end of the world, and business ethics, to name the major ones.
One of the main characters is a likable thief.
Mentions the use of a drug for prolonging life.
Smoking is mentioned.
Making Out/Sex - 2 Incidents
Going down to the women in the village and "knowing" a woman (this is a conversation) are mentioned a few times. The conversation about "knowing" the woman could be mistaken for knowing/liking her - it's very subtle, but is implied sex.
Several men are infatuated with one woman - her beauty and calm is soothing - and apparently she has "helped" (implied sex) several men stuck in Shangri La overcome their mental/emotional hurdles.
I listened to the audio version of this book so this Cleanliness Report is not as thoroughly detailed as other reports are. Some inappropriate content may have been forgotten/missed and not included in the report.
