Bangkok Knights, by Collin Piprell.











This is a book I wanted to read for some time.
The book was originally publish back in 1989 I believe, but is still very applicable today.
To me, it doesn’t matter if a book is published years ago, I can still enjoy it.
Just as with films and music.
And boy, did I enjoy this book!
What I instantly noticed, reading this good book (bangkok knights), was the fact that the characters in the book felt very familiar to me.
It could easily have been about some of my friends and acquaintances I met over the years.
Bangkok Knights is very easy to read, even for a extremely impatient person as myself. It takes nothing to disturb me.
I found myself giggling, and sometimes laughing out loudly over many of the situations the characters find them self in.
I also found out that I had a lot in common with one of the main characters as well. I had almost a 100% similar outlook on life and other people as he had. How is this possible? I guess this proves how Piprell has managed to find the right characters for his book.
This is one of those books any expat or wannabe expat in Bangkok should read.
I need to bring with me this book next time I am back in Bangkok, so I can get Collin Piprell to sign it.

The author:
I recently met Collin via a very dear friend (Kevin S Cummings) before I had read anything he had written.
In fact I had never heard of Collin Piprell before I met him.
However, it turned out I knew some of the titles of his books from before, without knowing it was him.
And when I met him, I got this feeling I had met Hemingway himself, in Bangkok. You get this feeling this man has done it all, and seen it all. So when I realized this was the guy behind some of the familiar titles, it was nothing to think about, get the books.







Enjoying Collin Piprell's book.
