This is my 80th read for the year
This is a book of short stories. One side of the page is writing in the Laos language, and the other translated into English. They are stories of ordinary people doing ordinary things in Laos. You get a peek into the day to day living in Laos.
This was a pretty good book. Some of the short stories end abruptly leaving you wanting for more. I do find that with short stories, though, so maybe it is was should be expected. The are entertaining and hold your interest, and give you some insight into life in Laos. A charming little book I am glad to add to my Read The World collection.
