The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan

A novel of the cruelty of war, and tenuousness of life and the impossibility of love.
Richard Flanagan's story, of Dorrigo Evans, an Australian doctor haunted by a love affair with his uncle's wife, journeys from the caves of Tasmanian trappers in the early twentieth century to a crumbling pre-war beach-side hotel, from a #Thai jungle prison to a Japanese snow festival, from the Changi gallows to a chance meeting of lovers on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Diamond Hunters by Wilbur Smith
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse / #Pattaya,
The Van Der Byl Diamond Company, willed by its founder to his son Benedict, daughter Tracey and estranged foster child Johnny Lance, turns out to be a bequest not of love, but of hatred.
For it is couched in such terms as to offer Benedict an instrument of destruction of his bitterest rival.
'Destroy Johnny' was the old man's implacable message to his son, and, obsessively jealous of his foster-brother, Benedict sets out in ruthless pursuit of this goal.

@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe *-* Guesthouse / #Pattaya,
Two people from two vastly different cultures on a collision course to romance, adventure and…destiny.
U.S. Army Captain Keith Miller was no stranger to conflict and danger: the Vietnam War, clandestine operations, a plane crash, the jungle, he survived it all.
But nothing could prepare him for what was in store after meeting the winsome, enigmatic Jey, a courageous but unfortunately indentured Thai-Karen woman, as they journey across the exotic landscape and on the high seas of Southeast Asia.

From Third World to First: The Singapore Story: 1965-2000
by Lee Kuan Yew, Foreword by Henry Kissinger.
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe *-* Guesthouse / #Pattaya,
Few gave tiny Singapore much chance of survival when it was granted independence in 1965.
How is it, then, that today the former British colonial trading post is a thriving Asian metropolis with not only the world's number one airline, best airport, and busiest port of trade, but also the world's fourth highest per capita real income?

The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe *-* Guesthouse / #Pattaya,
A black swan is a highly improbable event with three principal characteristics: It is unpredictable; it carries a massive impact; and, after the fact, we concoct an explanation that makes it appear less random, and more predictable, than it was.
The astonishing success of Google was a black swan; so was 9/11.
For Nassim Nicholas Taleb, black swans underlie almost everything about our world, from the rise of religions to events in our own personal lives.

Traded back in @ Canterbury Tales Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe, #Pattaya, #Thailand
New Yorker Daniel Stephenson had made a name for himself with his drag persona, Princess 2Di4, when the sudden death of the real Princess Di drained all the pleasure from his performances.
Taking the advice (and financial support) of a wealthy aunt, he decides to "toss the tiara and get a life." Unfortunately, Daniel's only degrees are in "extensive show tune knowledge, advanced lip-sync, and how to cover up a five o'clock shadow."

The Butterfly Trap by Dennis Jon
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse / Pattaya, Thailand..
In hindsight, maybe fluttering off the tour guide's red line wasn't such a good idea.
But Jon has neither hindsight nor foresight as his vacation unfolds in real time.
Acting without consequence, he discovers that real life is funnier, crazier, and more interesting than fiction, as he encounters crooked tour guides, transvestite karaoke stars, restroom massage gangs, and angels, not with wings and halos, but g-strings and high heels.
