‘Leaving the blinding sand for the cool shade of the trees, I walked carefully through the undergrowth to where Dave, using two twigs as chopsticks, was picking up a freshly severed human finger…’

John’s trip to India starts badly when his girlfriend returns home and he finds himself looking at the sharp end of a knife in a train station cubicle. But his life is saved by an enigmatic traveller called Rick, who persuades John to question his mundane plans for the future, risking it all for much, much more.

Fast forward to the Thai island of Koh Pha-Ngan; John, Rick and their new friend Dave pose as millionaire aristocrats in a hedonistic Eden of beautiful girls, free drugs and wild beach parties. Running out of money and pursued by the Thai Mafia, they embark on adrenalin-fuelled journeys to Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and Hong Kong, facing danger at every turn.

Filled with wild adventures in exotic locations, this is not travel writing for the faint-hearted: this is an amazing true story of the hunt for excess at any cost.

I enjoyed this book so much I’ve read it three times since buying it many years ago. It’s a simple backpacker story but is well written and very funny. Very much recommended, especially if you have been to Thailand or have an interest in travel.

Awesome read
