Hunters in the Dark.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Hunters in the Dark

..the film was written by Osborne from his own novel, about an Englishman adrift in Cambodia who’s eager to sidestep a life of quiet desperation as a smalltown teacher.

"Shot against the backdrop of modern Cambodia, a country that is itself trying to construct a new face to mask the horrors it endured in the second half of the 20th century, Hunters will explore identity, atonement and the dark currents that flow underneath human nature and fight back when we try to change our path," said Evans.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

I'm seriously torn between this interesting book and a semi decent hooker

TEFLer the Movie. Sounds rather dull as a concept.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Yeah yeah I know I am resurrecting an old topic but that was about the movie. I have recently been reading the book and its a really good read. Its an engaging and almost poetic story about an innocent abroad. Battambang and Phnom Penh around 2015 through the eyes of a naive and carefree young English guy, with enough mystery and drama to keep the story going. The observations of the Khmers and the expats are spot on, and the locations are real and identifiable. Definitely worth a look. If anyone has a Kindle you can pm me, I can 'lend' it to you.
