    1 thought on “Phnom Penh Express

    1. Nice, we found the places and people known to expatriates in Phnom Penh, this is funny but also limit the perspective we get on Phnom Penh and its inhabitants. Anyhow, the intrigue is not too strong, but realistic enough to make us turn the pages. Summer read

    2. I enjoyed this book. The pace is just nice not too fast, not too slow, and it's a great immersion into a southeast Asian city. And hey, who can resist another chocolate truffle?

    3. A fun relaxed read, especially for people that have visited, or lived in, Cambodia. You sometimes almost feel like you've lived part of the book. Very enjoyable!
