    Neither the title, nor the description really give any information about this book. MY PUDDLES is a memoir written by Thai Peck about her life. She only briefly remarks upon her unhappy childhood in Vietnam. At the tender age of seventeen, she met and eventually married an Australian War Correspondant named Brian Peck. Thai had two children, a boy and a girl and despite life's ups and downs, they remained married until the sad day in 2015 when Brian passed away.

She only briefly remarks upon her unhappy childhood in Vietnam. At the tender age of seventeen, she met and eventually married an Australian War Correspondant named Brian Peck. Thai had two children, a boy and a girl and despite life's ups and downs, they remained married until the sad day in 2015 when Brian passed away. Thai eloquently expresses just how much they loved each other in the book's first chapter: "In September 1968 ... At Singapore airport about to board an Air Vietnam flight, among the crowd, a couple of Americans...through them I met this Australian reporter. While each man offered to carry one of my bags, only one remained faithfully carrying them through our many journeys for the rest of his life. Until one morning in April 2015 when he took his last breath in my arms. His name was Brian Peck. He was my best friend, my confidante, and my all. He brought happiness into my everyday life for 45 years." Besides her relationship with her husband, Thai also writes about her travels to many countries and her life as a diplomat's wife. She candidly describes the hippocritical nature of those events - glitz and glamour on the surface, but lonliness on the inside. I enjoyed reading about Thai Beck's life and as a self-published book, she has done a good job. What she does need, however, is a good proofreader and editor. It is readily apparent that the memoir is written by someone whose first language is not English. There are quite a few places in this book that need to be edited. The need for proofing and editing are significant, but by filling this autobiography with numerous photographs and copies of Thai's paintings, the joy of reading this book increases immensely. I rate MY PUDDLES as 3.5 out of 5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐ +0.5 Thank you to the Goodreads Giveaway program for providing me with a free copy of this book.

    I really enjoyed reading about Thai Peck’s life as she has certainly led a very interesting life as a diplomat’s wife and enjoyed some wonderful travels. Thai is a very eloquent writer and she truly wrote some beautiful sections on the love she shared with her husband. I also very much appreciated her candid and open discussions of her parental relationships, alongside some of the ups and downs of marriage in general. While I think Thai Peck has done a wonderful job collating these memoirs, it’s I really enjoyed reading about Thai Peck’s life as she has certainly led a very interesting life as a diplomat’s wife and enjoyed some wonderful travels.

While I think Thai Peck has done a wonderful job collating these memoirs, it’s very obvious this is a self-published book. My Puddles is in real need of a proofreader to iron out those language issues, and an editor to maybe try and give the book a bit more flow. I can’t review this book without discussing Thai’s beautiful paintings. They really were a lovely addition to the book and added so much to the book’s tale. However, I personally feel like the paintings being in black and white significantly diminished their impact. This is a very difficult book to rate and review so I’ve gone with a middle ground of 2.5 stars. I feel as though this book has a lot of potential and Thai’s writing is very expressive and her life has been truly interesting, but it lacks the polish necessary for me to rate this any higher. Thank you so much to the Goodreads Giveaway program for sending me a free copy of this book.
