Kindle 端末は必要ありません。無料 Kindle アプリのいずれかをダウンロードすると、スマートフォン、タブレットPCで Kindle 本をお読みいただけます。
Chai Pinit had a normal childhood in Thailand until he was molested by a teacher. Unable to confide in anyone or seek counselling for the abuse, he started drinking in his teenage years and became an alcoholic who sold his body for money. The author now feels that it is time to tell his heartbreaking story.
"But now, after years of emotional torment and despair, the author feels it is time to tell his heartbreaking story. Bangkok Boy is a devastating account of a childhood stolen by sexual abuse and the consequences that follows."
Roll the eyes and raise the eyebrows, the pity party has begun. I'm not making fun of REAL child abuse or a child who has truly suffered, but this young man's (note: he was NOT a "young boy") story strikes me as a situation where he is just trying to cast blame for his own bad decisions and personal problems. Many young men and women working in Thailand's sex industry are doing so by choice, seeing it as a way to make much more money than they could in a "normal" career. That doesn't mean that they are all sex slaves or victims of abuse, but books like this only serve to perpetuate that myth. Also, this does a disservice to those children who have truly suffered from abusive parents, teachers, or molesters. This poorly written account is nothing more than a bad tabloid story multiplied. Don't waste your time with this book. I read the first 50-plus pages and felt like that was too much.
