The best book regarding relationships with bargirls that you can ever read. This should be compulsory reading for all first-timers to Thailand. (Pattaya Mail)
Because of all of its local wisdom, Private Dancer ought to be made available to every tourist at port of entry. (Bernard Trink, Bangkok Post)

It's even very repetitive but ultimately I didn't mind. An edge of your seat thriller and not a formulaic crime story. A must have for men interested in Bangkok/Thailand night life. The best fiction I've found on the subject (and there's lots of it).
The writing is extremely real (also the most "real" book I have ever read ...I found myself loving and hating the characters, and even thinking about them a lot even after I finished the book) and also raw and blunt -- don't read it unless you are ok with X-rated material. But I didn't actually find it unnecessarily gross; rather, just accurate. I can't however think of a single woman that I know who wouldn't be exceptionally offended by almost everything in the book (despite its truth-being-told). Just some warnings, for those who need them.
ps - I also think it should be pointed out that ALL of the characters in this book are bar-going expects or hookers, or people that have some direct connection to them. I wouldn't exactly call that a total set of all people: expats or Thais. So take some of the cynicism with a (big) grain of salt, as Thailand (and people) certainly aren't unanimously as portrayed in this novel (not even remotely, thankfully).
