fascinating read especially for someone who travels to Bali regularly. Confirms what we all already know about the corrupt legal systems around the world and not just in Indonesia. I couldn't put it down and would read pages to anyone who would listen
Living in Bali I found a lot of this familiar and actually placed faces and names. At times it is a bit salacious not sure if this was to attract readers as the relevance was somewhat tenuous. All in all factual reasonably accurate and I would recommend. I must read her other books
I found this book very hard going. The first few chapters provide enough insights into the underbelly of drug trafficking in Bali. The rest of the book focuses on the interplay of a few key drug runners with the inevitable conclusion of capture and jail.
I’m absolutely obsessed with True Crime and infamous figures so after binging Schapelle Corby’s ‘My Story’ I was so excited for Hotel K and Snowing in Bali. Schapelle’s story is a woman from my own backyard experience cultural difference and I couldn’t help but place myself in her shoes. I went on the ups and downs and was on the edge of my seat. Snowing in Bali is foreigners and Bali Locals (as well as a few Aussies) and how they operate in the Bali drug trade. It’s intriguing, chilling and keeps you on your toes!
