Présentation de l'éditeur

Siswan started life as a simple village girl but an alcoholic father and a needing mother would change her life forever. She must seek out the help of the foreign men who visit her country - but first she has to learn their ways.
From the first chapter to the last Bar Girl tells a harrowing tale of life in Asia where the only thing that matters is money, where love and respect have to be bought rather than earned, and where women always come second.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good story 14 septembre 2012

I downloaded this e-book because Kindle was giving it away for free. Some free e-books were gems, while others weren't. This is definitely a gem. I can relate to the story, because I actually traveled through Thailand and learned quickly the local ways. I left Thailand with my bank account intact, despite the onslaught of beautiful exotic women.

I wished the author put the names of some of the cities. I imagine this story may be connected to real people.

The strength of the novel is the author keeps my interest engaged, which is very difficult to do now. I downloaded so many books where I struggled to finish reading them. I am reading this book quickly, because it is interesting.

The weakness of the story is it needs more editing. I imagine some English language Nazis would cringe over every page. However, I can look beyond this and appreciate the story. I rate the story a five star.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 So many scenes of this story were not true like Thais in the villages won't really be bothered about ... 7 octobre 2014

Well, I'm Thai and from a very small village, got really close background of this story BUT!!!!!!! So many scenes of this story were not true like Thais in the villages won't really be bothered about birthdays as they work in the field, they'll come home in the evening and go to work in early morning. They won't hit, slap, punish their kids(girls) if accidently hit or touched the monks, they might shout at the girls and apologize to the monks and the monks won't be very happy to see parents hit or punish their kids (girls). I couldn't continue reading more as so many scenes are sooo far away from truth so I couldn't stand for to read but hanks anyway so I could see how your imagination about Thais, I think you better learn more truth about Thais. Lots of girls from the villages have good education even some of them walk straight to the bar but every country has prostitute, so be careful to write your story about us.

Wow! I just finished reading this powerful, moving story. It is not mythological read, but I was interested in how the author, a male, would deal with the topic - especially as it is told from the heroine, Siswan' s, point of view. Mr.Thompson does the job admirably. Siswan begins as a young innocent child who is forced to grow up too quickly but, what sets her apart is her self control. She controls, internalizes, channels, and directs the anger that builds up inside of her, which allows her to live another day. Her determination is unfailing.

She is able to survive not just because of her innate strength, but also because of the small businesses and few friends that give her cause to hope for the future. Hope for herself and hope that there is some good left somewhere in humanity.

Suspension of disbelief is readily given by the reader as she explains how she learned with such unerring precision the ways of the farang, the foreigner, learns English, becomes a superior businessperson, and the resolution of her issues with her brother and her boyfriend. It is given because the reader is part of the solution, we are all fighting for Siswan' s success because her success will result in hope for all of us. We need her to succeed in her quest; it is almost the redemption of a cruel part of human nature - not a condemnation of human frailty, but an acknowledgement. If Siswan can attain her goals, we are all redeemed in dome small way.

Thank you, David Thompson, for bringing the plight if the bar girl to our attention and letting us feel the sorrow and pride of a sector if Thai life.

Whilst the author does not nominate either the country or the locality of the story setting, for anyone who has travelled in Asia you know you have been there. A very different and one feels honest narrative about the other side of the bar existence. An engrossing read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Look into Another World 19 mars 2013

I really enjoyed Bargirl, for me it was a glimpse into a different world, one which is both revolting and appealing. The story is good, with the exception of the final chapter which left me with a phony happily-ever-after feeling. I also get the feeling that the work has been translated into English, such is the choppiness of the sentence structure. If you're a grammar Nazi, run the other way; if you want a feel for a world that you're likely not to experience, dive in. I know I'm going to check out other titles by Mr. Thompson, for they may broaden my horizons a little.
