Első regény Fejős Évától. Igazából a "Szeretlek, Bangkok" hatására olvastam el... kíváncsi lettem, és nem bántam meg. Tetszett, sőt, a sok angol-amerikai sablon után kifejezetten élveztem,hogy magyar neveket, magyar helyszínekről olvashatok. (na jó, orosztanár szívem kicsit megroggyant Piros tanárnőtől:) Tudom, hogy nem ugyanaz a kategória, de kicsit "Aranyeső" (Janikovszky, ifjúkorom nagy kedvence) érzésem volt. Hacsak nem válik túl sablonossá, azt hiszem, végigolvasom Fejős Évát.

If I could give it six stars I would. This Hungarian writer/journalist really nailed the tension in this novel. She also seamlessly interweaves multiple POVs and plot lines into one powerful story. Her prose is very engaging and is also a great way for writers to analyze deep POV. I read the English version and couldn't put it down.

My only regret is that more of her books aren't available in English.

Bangkok Transit by Hungarian blonde bombshell Eva Fejos is the Love Actually of travel fiction. Seven strangers find themselves in Bangkok, searching for something they’re missing; family, happiness, freedom… Fate intervenes, and the paths of these strangers cross amid the humidity and crowds of Bangkok.

I found this book fascinating. It took awhile to get into the swing of the story, as the narrative jumps rapidly between the perspectives of different characters, and they aren’t alwa

There are different reasons why people travel to Bangkok. Some want to find themselves, some are drawn back to the place they formed memories and some are just simply escaping life. Bangkok Transit tells the story of several people who are travelling to Bangkok for these various reasons.

It took me a while to get into this book as Bangkok Transit follows the lives of quite a few people. Whenever I picked the book up again I was introduced to new characters and couldn’t quite remember

The premise of Bangkok Transit by Eva Fejos was very intriguing, and I am grateful for the chance to read it. It gives readers a peek into the lives of seven different people who come to Bangkok for very different reasons, but each one looking for something or someone to fill an ache in his or her heart. The book is translated into English from Hungarian, and for the most part, the writing was smooth and didn’t feel as if it wasn’t the original language. The author draws several different sketch ...more
Original review on my blog

I received a copy of Bangkok Transit for an honest review.

Bangkok Transit deals with the many different lives of characters that traveled to Bangkok. We got their backstories and why they were traveling there and their exposure to the different culture.

While it was a tad confusing keeping everyone in my head while learning about more and more characters I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Bangkok Transit. It really made me think about all the

This book is such an interesting journey. There are numerous characters that leave you feeling many emotions because they all have a distinct and unqiue stories and voices. There will something for everyone. You will be transported emotionally because like the cover of the book reads....Bankok Transit is about love, overcoming sorrow and finding happiness. 3.5 stars

it catered to the daydreaming wannabe traveler that I am, and is sure to awaken the desire to see the world in other readers as well...

Eva Fejos worked in one of the largest Hungarian women’s magazines, Nők Lapja (Women’s Journal), as a journalist from 2001 until 2012. She was the recipient of both the Award for Quality Journalism and the Award for Excellence.
She is tremendously fond of traveling. Her many experiences give a personal touch to her exciting, propelling, and exotic novels.

Fejos's first Hungarian best-seller book,
