    A new crime series

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 01/06/2015

    » Time was when James Patterson penned a crime novel annually. Then semi-annually. Then seasonally. At the rate this reviewer is now receiving them, they seem to be coming out weekly. No sooner do I critique one than the next crosses my desk. Alone and with his team of co-authors, he's clearly on a roll.

    Good cops, bad cops

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 18/05/2018

    » Few things are more disheartening than learning that those sworn to protect us from society's predators are corrupt, indeed evil themselves. Then who are the good guys, if any? Many a crime novelist raises this question without presenting a satisfactory solution.

    Genre mix misses its marks

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 08/02/2019

Although with all the good intentions and interesting combinations, the result is still somewhat mediocre.

    Call me by her name

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 13/07/2018

    » While the interest and market for gay-themed stories continue to grow -- on online channels, on television series and in cinemas -- the sub-genre of lesbian movies has still got some catching up to do, especially in Thailand. Once in a blue moon, a lesbian film would drop on our cinema or TV screens, and the ones that had an actual cultural impact can be counted on one hand.

    Big city, small town

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 11/05/2018

    » People are natural actors. Observe how they tell stories to their friends, passing on telephone conversations or what they saw or heard. They mimic and flap their arms for emphasis. Hoping for smiles or groans. Novelists aim to do the same with more words. Alas, only the better ones succeed. All too many try and fail.
