Summary ´ Single White Female in Hanoi õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Memoir introduces us to a cast of memorable Vietnamese characters as well as her fellow foreigners searching for love and adventure From teaching English sub editing a propaganda news. The writing itself is great Descriptive and evocative it manages to capture some of the essence of Ha Noi But a Western expat writing a book about the oddities of Asian culture essentially how backwards it all is compared to her own shouldn t be throwing stones Continuously referencing the idea that Vietnamese men beat their wives sharing anecdotes of local women suppressed under jealous boyfriends and husbands then actively enticing her taxi driver into having sex with her even though she knows his wife Then saying the reason the wife didn t end up making a fuss because she was flattered that a rich Westerner would be interested in her husband Sorry nextIf writing about a culture not your own maybe stop being an ass about it There are better ways to learn about a culture than to read about it through the eyes of privilege carrying a superiority complex
