But all is not as it seems, as we learn in the subsequent parts, told by different cha "Stealing Asia" by David Clarkson is another great travel adventure story by this talented author. But all is not as it seems, as we learn in the subsequent parts, told by different characters of the book. The unfolding and unravelling of the plot and the change from holiday romance and harmless adventure story to action packed thriller is done very well, I did not see the twists and deceits in the story coming. The change of voice in the different parts is something often frowned upon in reviews but I personally find the benefit of added perspectives always intriguing and in this story particularly useful and enjoyable.
There is a lot of thought and plotting in this novel and we are casually confronted with the ins and outs of travelling in Asia as tourist, the author seems to have sound knowledge of the area he is writing about and feeds us information in a low key journalistic style. The narrative voices are also often understated and do feel very realistic rather than sensationalist or over the top. I may have a thing for travel writing ever since I read "Backpack" in the 90ies but few have impressed me as much as this novel has.
If beautiful, atmospheric and descriptive writing about a holiday adventure gone wrong is your thing and you like fast paced thrillers this is definitely for you.

Highly recommended. Jun 07, Gerard Fleck rated it it was amazing. This guy David Clarkson is a world traveller who spins yarns everywhere he goes. What I especially like is the travel aspects to Clarkson's books because they put you in a foreign country as much more than a tourist. I recommend it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Woman jailed for stealing copies of newspapers from doorsteps - CNA
David grew up in the north east of England, where he went on to study English Literature at The University of Sunderland. After graduating, he started to write his first fictional stories, but always felt that to become a truly accomplished writer he would need to significantly broaden his horizons. Therefore, just days after his 27th birthday, he bought a one-way ticket to Sydney, Australia. He spent 2 years in the land down under and travelled through every far flung corner of the country, earning his keep by taking up jobs doing everything from pruning grape vines to driving tractors.
In his spare time he vowed to try every new experience that was offered his way, no matter how crazy.

He climbed glaciers, swam with sharks, jumped from aeroplanes and pretty much tried to live life as much as possible. During his time overseas, he was also fortunate enough to meet the love of his life; Katie.
