Fiction Tie – A Unique Experience
Fiction Tie – A Unique Experience
Fiction Thai is the best selling book in Thailand. It has been selling like crazy ever since it hit the shelves of every bookstore in Thailand. I bought it just a week after it’s release. In addition to that, it was featured in many magazines and books including Oprah and Time magazines. The main reason for this is that it is written by Chitravee Samant, a very famous author in Thailand who has also written many award winning books.
This is not your typical story where you travel from one location to another. The main character in this novel is Khao San, who starts out in Thailand as a simple fish vendor. Then, he ends up getting captured and sold into slavery to a Chinese man. This story gives you a glimpse of the life in prison, the life of a slave and the struggles to freedom and happiness.
The story takes place in a period during the reign of King Rama V. and is based on the life of King Rama V. His rule is seen through his wife Dokla. She tries her best to protect her husband from enemies but without success. Khao San witnesses the life of her friend Song Khum, who was also sold into slavery by her owner. This event stirs up memories for him and makes him vow to free his master and his people.
The story is told in a series of events and flashbacks. Most of the events take place in the slums of Bangkok. I felt that sometimes they were a little slow in telling the story, but once you reach the end, you are so glad you read it. The descriptions of the people and the poverty in Bangkok were real and you can see it on the faces of the characters.
Story wise, there are quite a few plot twists and turns. They all add to the excitement of the story. Although it is predictable at times, it keeps you interested and wanting to know what happens next. There were some moments when I wanted to stop reading because I could not wait to see how everything would end. There are a couple of love affairs that did not seem completely realistic, but it could have been some embellishment on the author’s part.
The writing style of the story was clear and easy to follow. There were no typos or grammar mistakes. The story flow is very well paced. I even liked the way the story was told using short scenes.
Overall, this novel is well written and is a good read. It will definitely entertain and make you feel like you are in the middle of a very interesting story. It is a good read with very unique and interesting characters. If you are looking for a very vivid and adventurous story, this one is not for you.
However, if you are looking for a Thai story with action and adventure, this novel is not for you. It has more of a non-Thai story. That is to say, it is not centered entirely around the Thai culture. There are parts where the characters travel to Cambodia, Laos or Thailand. Other than that, it is a great story about two friends who are very different, yet have very similar dreams.
There were several moments that really made me laugh. One scene hadobs telling Samui that he would always stay with them, no matter what. Another hadobs tells his girlfriend that he would never leave her. These two characters are so hilarious to read. I just laughed every time I read their dialogue. It is just funny to think that somebody would actually put words in the mouth of their characters.
Overall, this story is a great introduction to a fantastic genre. It contains many elements of mystery, adventure, fantasy and horror. In my opinion, this is a book that can be enjoyed by both young adults and middle-aged adults. I would recommend this to anybody who likes humorous, creative writing. Readers will definitely smile and be happy with this story and the quality of the writing.
