I started reading this book several weeks ago but I frequently found myself unable to read more than a few of the letters at a time. The introductory materials provided a relatively clear and non-judgmental discussion of the collection of letters from foreign tourists professing love and proposing marriage to Thai prostitutes. While the introductions, the epilogue and a number of the interviews were very interesting and informative, particularly to someone with little or no familiarity with the...more

I rated this "do not like it" NOT because it's a bad book. The authors put a ton of what had to be hard, complicated, heartbreaking work into putting this together. They deserve an award.

But I couldn't say I "liked" it. It's the limited rating wording.

Honestly, after reading half the book, it just broke me up so bad I had to put it down. Perhaps I'll finish it when I'm safely in a relationship myself. Reading this single? Don't do it.

These ladies are tour guides with happy endings. Though most o...more

This was a book waiting to be written, but if you're looking for a raunchy sex tale about Bangkok's red-light districts, try the Internet -- it's full of sites with much more graphic descriptions, even streaming video.

In a culture that sometimes (read: almost always) refuses to budge, feminism has taken on a steely, survivalist stance. And I honestly mean that in the most admirable way possible. More and more it feels like modern American feminism takes the role of the duck hunter: patiently waiting in the underbrush of social media, taking aim at the inevitable projectiles of misogyny and misinformation, and turning them into broken bits of clay. There has been a piecemeal approach to this movement as of lat...more

Terrible. I was looking for some interesting letters to read and these did not fit the bill. Perhaps I would have been more inclined to like the book if the authors had not made the claim that these letters tell the not-so-conventional love stories. In fact these letters are either from pathetic men who are unable to form emotional relationships in the real world, from ass hats who are cheating on their wives/girlfriends, or men who are simply looking for an attractive wife with few other qualit...more

I only gave this book a two because of the comedic factor. I'm not sure it was meant to be funny, and mostly it is sad and pathetic. Lonely men with issues going to Thai prostitutes for real love?! Can they be that ignorant? Apparently so, and this book documents it for everyone to read. Basically, the men are predators and the women are, too. The men think they can purchase love, and the women are desperate enough to pretend to love these men if it means escaping the hell they currently live in...more

The letters become numbingly repetitive after a while and I found myself skipping ahead to the next interview with an active or former bar girl. Even so, it's a reasonably interesting expose of the Patpong sex industry.
