This story is about the chaotic life of a fashion photographer like me, who one day had the bright idea to set out for a certain ‘iron curtain’ country as a means of gaining new and peculiar life experiences. However, God decided to grace me with an enemy unmatched in good looks and ferociousness, Alexey, a mafia gangster in disguise as a civil servant. Not to mention, he’s not by himself. Accompanied by three particularly brutal bodyguards, the mundane life of a commoner like me was flipped upside-down by an expensive and fatal life lesson that I never dreamed of facing.
Despite there being an (over) abundance of BL novels in Thailand, Carta Visa has always stood out to me as being one of the most enjoyable novels in a long time. Guaranteed to give a Jolly Good Time™, this story is full of humour which tastefully does not put off from the romantic heartfelt moments. The fire-water dynamic between Petch and Alexey is a delight to read, not to mention there is the lovey dovey side couple as well. Carta Visa spans five thick volumes however they are broken up into the following:
Volume 1 & 2: Carta Visa – Base Story
Volume 3 & 4: Carta Visa – Red Rag and the Bulls
Volume 5: Carta Visa – Short notes from Paris
Finally, please do note that English is not my first language but I am trying my best! There is also unfortunately no upload schedule; regardless, loosely and very generally I tend to crank out three chapters every month (Edit: On hiatus till mid-May 2018, sorry!)
