    1 thought on “Mindfulness and Murder: A Father Ananda Mystery

    1. Book ReviewMindfulness and MurderAuthor Nick Wilgus I started Mindfulness and Murder not sure what I was going to find I have read crime dramas before and books dealing with all manner of issues concerning Thailand, but never have I encountered one that blended these two together Considering Mr Wilgus has spent some time in the Kingdom, I was hoping for something in tune with the realities of Thai culture, and not the typical Hollywood view of a morally baseless Bangkok as an adult wonderland o [...]

    2. Fantastic first part in the Father Ananda mystery series set in Thailand by American writer Nick Wilgus Father Ananda is a Buddhist monk of course and gets drawn into a murder case in his own temple in Bangkok A young boy is found dead on the premises and all points to things not being well in either the temple or the Land of Smiles Father Ananda and his young sidekick Jak set out to solve the crime while illuminating a pretty realistic, somewhat seedy Thailand and offering bitter sweet insights [...]

    3. Spero che vengano tradotti presto anche altri titoli sulle indagini di Padre Ananda.Ho apprezzato lo stile di Wilgus, che ci offre larghi squarci di una realt lontana da noi, dando un forte risalto all aspetto pi umano delle vicende.Molto azzeccati gli insight sul buddhismo e la vita dei monasteri.

    4. It took a little bit to get into this book, but, once I worked out the characters, I couldn t put it down Interesting and well written.

    5. First Father Ananda mystery Not all that mysterious, but the setting, locale, and religion are all interesting elements.

    6. A Buddhist Monastery in Bangkok has a dead body on their hands, and Father Ananda was an ex cop, so naturally the Abbot asks him to investigate.

    7. Lacked the humor of Colin cotterillWould recommend as a quick read and clever monastery mystery in south Asia s bustling metropolis But didn t get the writing quality, character development, or laugh lines of the Dr siri series.

    8. John Burdett s Bangkok Haunts whetted my appetite for Bangkok mysteries, so I snapped up this one when I spotted it for the right price it s another murder mystery, this time with a Buddhist monk as the detective In some ways I felt like Wilgus is Burdett s opposite as a writer where Burdett s book suffered from an absurd reliance on the supernatural as plot device and cheesy dialogue, Wilgus has written a sensible, but ultimately trite piece of detective fiction Wilgus has clearly read the lik [...]

    9. First of all, Mindfulness and Murder is a cracking good mystery Father Ananda, a former policeman turned monk, is confronted with two murders inside his temple in Thailand No matter that he gave up police work, he can t turn away from this tragedy in what should be a holy place.And so begins a story of religion, drugs, corruption, homeless youth, and sex, set in the bustle of Bangkok The principles of Buddhism play a major part in the story, and are presented sympathetically.One of the qualities [...]

    12. Pensate che i monaci buddisti siano tutte delle brave persone, animi gentili che non farebbero mai del male ad una mosca Leggetevi questo libro e vi ricrederete.L idea non male, e introduce in un ambiente, quello buddista, e ci aiuta a capire, molto leggermente, qualche dogma di questa religione e ci mostra aspetti da noi poco conosciuti.Sotto l aspetto giallo, il libro non male, ma troppo facile capire chi che ha organizzato tutto, anche se l autore cerca di sviarti senza riuscirci troppo

    13. Loved this book and started right away with the second book I never visited Thailand and I think wouldn t this much insight as a tourist I liked the nearly laconic style of writing The mystery was interesting and I liked the protagonists.

    14. I really liked the book and it was made into a movie in Thailand The author spent close to two decades working for the Bangkok Post so he is familiar with the country I have already recommended it to few people to read.

    15. This book is is a carefully laid out murder mystery where you will learn a bit about Buddhism and the life of a monk in a Buddhist monastery Quite enjoyable.

    16. I kept waiting for the murderer to be found as in any good mystery Wilgus does a good job of using his setting of Bangkok Not a bad read
