No current Talk conversations about this book.

More of an autobiographical spiritual novel of a wanderlust white dreamy backpacker male character chugging meeting with people and exchanging conversation, drugs and alcohol and stuff. You could say there's multitudes of white washing in some parts, add some superficial mystical exoticism that often adds nothing to the content and a rather 'realistic but redundant' dialogues with very minimal characterization and lack of subtle plot made the reading process almost borders on tolerable if not for the short length.

Its not a bad book if you wouldn't mind enjoying these kind of books. If you are a South East Asian, better skip this one. More a fantasy novel for the dreamy escapist tourist types.

Book description
A spirited romp across Southeast Asia, Mystic Fool follows the exploits of a young man, led by alchemy and alcohol, as he explores the inner and outer planes. Beginning in the islands of southern Thailand, he heads to the ancient capital of Siem Reap and up the coast of Vietnam to the chaos of Hanoi. Jettisoned to a farm in northern Laos milking goats, we then find him guzzling rum with a guru in the Golden Triangle, and later in Pai, embracing the mystery. With caution abandoned and destiny swooned, this lyrical jaunt soars and enchants with each bus, train, and tuk tuk ride.
