Year it was published: 2008
This explores the life of a Thai man in dire poverty rising to success and control of his life as a prostitute artist
This time I didn't even get an opportunity to read word/sentence per paragraph. Why? I was reading an e-version of it, and for some odd reason it formated horribly on my e-reader. From what I can tell though, it seems to be either a prequel or sequel to Nawin, or at least it contained the same named characters which I doubt is a coincidence. I was too frustrated with the e-reader to pay much attention to the story, although it seemed to be the same old song and dance routine that I am familiar with.
Quick notes: I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read and review the book.
