Reviews - What do customers think about Thai Girl?

Great Book.  Mar 3, 2008
I always thought it was Cristos who liked Asian women, but now I know that it's really Andrew. I recommend Thai Girl if you want to know more...
Surprisingly Good  Sep 28, 2007
No, this is not one of those guilty pleasure books even though the title is pretty suggestive. It's a coherent, authentic and sometimes serious novel that tells a convincing story of an exotic cross-cultural romance.

Young and innocent UK graduate Ben is the protagonist here. He visits Thailand with his girlfriend Emma and the couple expect to have the time of their lives, but Thailand changes everything. The couple split up on the island of Koh Samet and Ben falls in love with a pretty Thai girl giving massage and braiding hair on the beach.

From language problems to culture shock and the narrow-mindedness of the Thai public, a field of obstacles lie before him. Even open friendship is a problem. Let alone an open display of courtship. Yet Ben finds himself irresistibly attracted to Fon. They go to the bank together, they go out for dinner, they even go dancing. But eveything remains platonic. Ben is a gentleman truly in love. But soon after Ben's second visit to Koh Samet, the story seems to lose much of its momentum. There is no "happy ending" here. In fact, there isn't even a proper ending. But it's still a beautiful story, albeit an incomplete one - just like many of such stories in real life.

Though many parts of the book have characters like Maca, Jack and others telling more than they are showing, much of the background information about Thailand is revealed quite subtly. The plot and setting are so plausible that it may pass off as a true story. The dialogue is also pretty truthful and convincing. Overall, the author has great writing style and my only complaint is that it doesn't quite read like fiction. The conclusion could have been a bit more satisfying. Still, this book stands way above almost any book on Thai-Farang relationship that I've read.
