This book was really funny! She used humor well while still respecting Thai culture and Thai people. I laughed out loud several times.

A Broad Abroad in Thailand was such an amusing story, and I could not put the book down until it was finished. Dodie can tell a story in such a way that you feel like you are right there with her.

Meh! It was okay but nothing fantastic. I really like the author, she came across as a lovely, kind and very funny lady, however, as a current expat in Thailand I found it very hard to relate to her sugar coated stories about life in this unfriendly and often dangerous country.

This book is more about Dodie's troubled marriage and her problems dealing with the boss' wife than it is about being an ex-pat living in Thailand. It's entertaining at times, but the parts about her husband's sexual issues are tiresome.

Very funny and informative book about a lady living in Thailand for her husband's job. I think older women will appreciate the humor more, but I think anyone would get a kick out of it, as well as learn quite a bit about Thailand to boot.
