Bangkok: a sizzling, all-embracing, exotic city where the past and the present intertwine. It’s a place where anything can happen… and anything really does happen. The paths of seven people cross in this metropolis. Seven seekers, for whom this city might be a final destination. Or perhaps it is only the start of a new journey? A successful businessman; a celebrated supermodel; a man who is forever the outsider; a young mother who suddenly loses everything; a talented surgeon, who could not give the woman he loved all that she desired; a brothel’s madam; and a charming young woman adopted at birth. Why these seven? Why did they come to Bangkok now, at the same time? Do chance encounters truly exist?

My Review:I received a copy of Bangkok Transit for an honest review.
Bangkok Transit deals with the many different lives of characters that traveled to Bangkok. We got their backstories and why they were traveling there and their exposure to the different culture.
While it was a tad confusing keeping everyone in my head while learning about more and more characters I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Bangkok Transit. It really made me think about all the times I’ve travelled with others and I never know their backstories. Some of the characters weren’t my personal favorite, but I really enjoyed the whole theme of the book and the writing. It took me a bit to get into this book but after a while I really got into and started flipping through pages and finally found myself at the end.
All in all an amazing story and like nothing I have ever read before.
I am a Hungarian author and a journalist. I worked as a journalist for one of the largest Hungarian women’s magazines, Nők Lapja (Women’s Journal) for more than a decade (2001-2012). I have been the recipient of both the Award for Quality Journalism and the Award for Excellence.
Budapest, my beautiful hometown gives me lots of inspiration. However, I can’t image my life without traveling, which I often do in my free time. And of course, I like to take my readers to exciting journeys as well.
My first Hungarian best-seller book, Bangkok Transit, reached the top of the best-seller list within one month of its publication.
Following the initial publication of this novel in 2008, I have gone on to write thirteen other best-sellers. According to the many accounts given by my readers, my books are “therapeutic journeys,” full of flesh and blood characters who never give up on their dreams. Many readers have been inspired to change the course of their own lives after reading my books.
My most recent book, Vacation in Naples, is being translated into English right now and will be available from summer 2014.
