I enjoyed glimpses into the culture and business of Myanmar. The contrast between "foreigners", locals, returning locals, rich and poor were all briefly touched upon and could have been extended upon to capitalize on the rich characters and setting.
It was written more like a journal lapsing a year, or travel log at times, than a novel. Because of this I was able to read the book quickly. In fact this book did not require me to think in any way. It was however a nice diversion on a windy day giving insight into Myanmar that I didn't know before.
4 out of 5 stars.
The names of character’s mentioned in the stories are fictional to protect the reputations of the individuals.
