    What I found most interesting about this book was the glimpse of Thailand and the clash of cultures and religions (Christian/atheist/Buddhist). It's one of those books that's a little hard to describe, literary with inspirational and mystery elements.Quibble: I didn't like how Chiang's plot arc ended.

    A Walk in the Thai Sun was an enjoyable book to read. It wasn't overly long and it kept my attention throughout. It is the story of a missionary in Thailand, his father and the police force in Thailand. There were parts of the story that could have been elaborated on and would not have detracted from the story or the enjoyment of reading, however the book didn't need that elaboration to make it a very good read.I would recommend this book to readers 16 and up looking for an interesting, quick read.I received this book free from Goodreads First Reads.

    Thanks to Goodreads first-reads and the author for giving me this book. The story is about a policeman from Canada whose son Jeff is killed while living in Thailand doing missionary work. Sam, the father goes to Thailand to get answers about his son's death. It is evident by the way the author describes places and things (soda in a plastic bag with a string for example) that he has spent time in Thailand. It was a fast read and a great story.

    I received this book free as a goodreads first reads.Whilst this is a beautifully descriptive book I unfortunately found myself struggling to read it. It was, in my opinion too slow with not enough happening, I didn't care for any of the characters and wasn't really interested in who killed Jep/Jeff.

    I really enjoyed A Walk in the Thai Sun. This is a murder mystery with a difference - combining mystery and adventure with a level of spiritual growth and reflection you don't normally see. McKitrick's characters and descriptions of Thai life are rich and surprising. A beautiful novel.

    I enjoyed A Walk in the Thai Sun very much. It is accessible and engrossing. A thoughtful comparison of two cultures and religions informs the plot and characterization, and the portrait of Thailand from several points of view is very convincing.

    I enjoyed this book. I wanted to read it since we were able to tour Thailand in 2010 and I knew I'd enjoy reading about the country again. It wasn't a page turner though I did enjoy it. I'd not recommend it unless you have a real interest in missionaries in Thailand during the 1980's.

    Its was ok. It was nice to hear about Thailand from a descriptive sense. Ive always wanted to see the place. It just wasnt what I thought it would be. I won this book on Goodreads in exchange for my review.

    The characters really made this story. They were engaging and I cared about what happened to them. It was a fascinating glimpse into an American's experience in Thailand.
