I liked that a good book that is critically acclaimed about pot heads on a beach exists. You can tell the guy who wrote it is mixing in his own worldly experiences with his love of weed and interesting stories. I liked this book, and the way he tells it, you can almost tell when he is referencing his own life. Ending was kind of freaky but surprises are always fun. The reader does a good job with all the characters and accents and does not have any annoying habits, I recommend this book and audio book to anyone, stoner or not. Oh ya it was interesting to read a book written by a British person, instead of saying he ways 170 lbs, for example, he says 11 stone! Haha. It is neat to see how other people view Americans. Too bad there were no Americans living on the beach, but there were some in the book playing a key role. Just don’t waist your time with the movie till you have read/listened to the book.
great book. try it if you like light thrillers. great narrator. movie follows story very well
Hooked in the beginning. Narrator is good. Interesting story, it made me want to visit Thailand. But as the book continues it doesn't seem to develop much. Ending was really strange. All in all it was ok and helped pass the time the work.
