#47. Achan: A Year of Teaching in Thailand (Elayne Clift)

Book: Achan: A Year of Teaching in Thailand, by Elayne Clift

Genre and Year of Publication: Travel memoir, 2010

Where I got it: Free Kindle download

Length: 192 pages

Briefly, it’s an account by an American woman of a year which she spent as a teacher in Thailand.

Comments: I had mixed feelings about this book.  The first part, where she describes her initial experiences of living in Thailand, her students, their families, her responses to a new culture, was interesting.  The second, in which she focuses more on visits from her friends and shopping trips that she took with them… much less so.   Overall, I felt it was a missed writing opportunity.
