Jun 25, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: Anneliese never talks about her past – not even to her only daughter, Callan. You actually get to see the beautiful people then, the clothes, the locations, not just read about them. Nope, this is a more personal writing piece for me. Trivia About An Absolute Decep I’m really disappointed with this book. Having said all that I enjoyed most of it and would read the author’s work again.

It tells the story of Hannelore who becomes pregnant and is sent away from her family in disgrace. It gets a little blah after a while and you kind of don’t care because the girl is an idiot or appears to be in her actions.


Jessica Meddick rated it liked it May 04, Non ho trovato nulla di diverso da tanti romanzi che cioccolaot trovano in circolazione, ma soprattutto, non ho trovato un motivo valido che potesse trattenermi su quelle pagine, mentre continuavano a vorticarmi nel pensiero i diritti del lettore di Daniel Amarl. And how can someone bring their partner to another cioccollato and just lock them out of their life? Lesleey, that is Melbourne for you, the good and the bad weather wise! Regardless of being disappointed with the ending I read it quickly and didn’t want to put it down, even when I was on holidays with a group of friends I would disappear and go read.

Preview — Bitter Chocolate by Lesley Lokko. Jul 30, Rachel rated it really liked it. Lesley Lokko might be “the author who brought brains to the blockbuster”, but, at least based on Bitter Chocolate, I highly disagree, it is not a very intelligent book – rather the opposite and I do not feel inclined to check out her previous work, based on this experience.

A lengthy pager, I knew it would take me to the end of my trip. May 02, Kate rated it liked it. Books by Lesley Lokko. It was a little hard to stay interested when the main character looks like she dies in the first page. As for the plot While i love the author’s narrative, i think she spent a lot of pages on mundane descriptions.


Want to Read saving…. I was also unimpressed that the success of the women in the novel seemed hinged on finding the right man. It felt like the author was on a really good roll but suddenly needed to wrap things up too quickly.

It did take me three months to really get stuck in but as I’d paid for it on my kindle I thought I would “solider through”. Apr 05, Perry Whitford rated it did not like it. Una, due, tre, quattro sfighe.

An Absolute Deception

It’s an interesting story of three different women and how ,okko lives develop. Have loved her previous novels but this didnt live up to my expectations.

Inside was a cheque for a thousand dollars. Nov 11, Rachel rated it liked it. The first part of the book is very flirtatious, syrupy and extravagant and that’s why I found it for a while boring, even foolish. Incorporating what is essentially three stories into the one book, Bitter Chocolate just did not work for me. ledley
