Book Review – Fiction Thai
Fiction Thai is a new series of books based on a Thai myth. The myth was supposedly told to the author by the princess of Lanna in search for her lost love. The book has been translated into English and published by Random House, an imprint of Penguin Books. Many people are purchasing the book and finding it a pleasant surprise.
The book follows two story lines. The first follows the adventures of the main character, identified as Mae Thai, who lives in the tropical island kingdom of Thailand. She is described as a beautiful woman in her mid-thirties, with brown hair and a loving disposition. Her story is told of how she falls in love with a young American businessman who comes to visit her and expresses his desire to marry her.
The second story follows a much more dramatic course. It involves Mae Thai’s marriage to a man thirty years her senior. This man is very wealthy and beautiful, and he immediately takes me for granted. He fails to support her and help her find a job in the city. As a result, Mae turns to a Chinese herbalist to help her overcome her poverty.
In the story, the Chinese herbs that the herbalist gives to Mae Thai have a major impact on her life. Her cupid burns when she consumes these herbs and swears never to touch anything else that is not green. This causes a surge of happiness throughout her entire life. She finds everything else boring, however, such as work, children, and other people.
The story is accompanied by a number of beautiful, vibrant drawings by experienced cartoonists. I particularly enjoyed the two-dimensional approach used to portray everyday life in Thailand. I particularly liked the way that the artist draws people lying on their back or sleeping. This creates a realistic portrait of married couples in Thailand. Although some people may find the story troubling, I think it is worth a read.
The author, Robert J. Collier, is an expert at presenting stories that have cultural meaning and appeal to the Western reader. He is not afraid to present complex characters and a plot with a different twist for each part of the story. His writing style flows easily from one paragraph to the next. I also really liked the way he wrote endings. His descriptions of the aftermath of an attack were disturbingly realistic.
I also really enjoyed the stories of the people who come into contact with Mae Thai. The story has a human element, without being too sacrilegious, although some people might find it disturbing. The author knows how to present something interesting while keeping the story short and to the point. I found the story to be uplifting, motivating, and even funny.
I would recommend “The Fiction Thai” to people who enjoy reading about Thailand and the lives of Thai women. The story is very light-hearted and a good introduction to Thai culture. The illustrations, written by Collier, are colorful and bring life to the images included in the book.
“The Fiction Thai” is part of a series of books based on the life of Bangkok-born actress, Zhenna Khumpert. The story takes place shortly before her marriage to an American businessman, Mark Appel. Zhenna is a master martial artist and martial arts teacher. She believes she possesses magical powers, but she does not know how to unlock them. Appel teaches her the basics of martial arts, including flying kicks, throwing punches, and wrestling moves.
The story is told from Zhenna’s perspective, as seen through the eyes of the readers. We see both her thoughts and actions as she teaches Appel these martial arts. They are simple yet compelling. In addition, we see Appel acting out various situations through the eyes of Zhenna’s husband, Jon.
After their marriage, however, life becomes complicated for Zhenna and Appel. Appel begins to develop feelings for another woman, Thailand’s first lady, Anri. This relationship, however, is sabotaged by Zhenna’s husband, Jefri Ton. He realizes that if he is to get his ex-wife back, he will have to sacrifice everyone close to him. Appel, meanwhile, realizes that if he loses track of his former friend, he may lose his chance at a promising acting career in Thailand.
The “Fiction Thai” series is an engaging read with plenty of action. The author captures the true elements of Thailand through the story and brings them to life. In addition, Kukrit’s writing style makes the story come to life. The story is entertaining and educative at the same time. Readers will enjoy reading about the lives of three Thai women and their romance as they struggle to find themselves and fall in love.
