What I didn't like was some excessive use of Thai words that got me confused. There are some that I eventually remembered, others were lost. But overall it helps to get you in the world of the book.
Yes, I had many of the same reactions as you. I have no idea if the Thai culture in the book relates in any way modern Thai culture, but it sure FELT real.
