    One thought on “Thai Die”

    1. This book was completely unexpected. I figured he was a comedian and had been somewhere interesting so I'd give it a go. By being a complete fool, he teaches the reader about some interesting scams being run in Thailand. His hindsight approach to it all is quite amusing to follow. Then the book turns into a very real insight into the problems of Burma (not really a spoiler since it tells you as much on the back of the cover). burmaproject/amnesty/

    2. This was a really quick read, and a very full on, scary adventure for a comedian to experience, I think! I really enjoyed it, though. I read it whilst living in Malaysia but had only been to Phuket, not the places mentioned in the book, at the time, so it was quite a learning experience for me. I did later go to Bangkok, but I was certainly very cautious whilst there, in part because of this story!
