Review Thursday: Sweetheart From Hell


Sweetheart From Hell
By May-Zhee Lim
Self-Published 2007
ISBN 978 983 4314415
Paperback 382 pagesRM29.90

May Zhee wrote this story when she was 16 years old - or maybe 17.  It's self published too.  Don't let either of these facts put you off.  Sweetheart From Hell is a great read.

The star of the book is Vicky.  She is one of those spoilt rotten, clingy, demanding, mercenary, bitchy girls who get away with appalling manners because they are pretty.  She's the sort of girl my friend Grace calls SCBs (Skinny Chinese Bitches).  But you can't help liking Vicky just a tiny bit.

The story starts when Vicky divorces her husband because he refuses to run after the lipstick she dropped on the plane, ("the plane is taking off" is not an excuse).  Vicky then goes out in Kuala Lumpur to find herself a better prospect.  Whether she gets what she wants or what she deserves you'll have to find out for yourself.

This book was published a while ago but if you look around you should be able to find it.  I got mine in MPH.  You can also check out May Zhee's blog.

sounds interesting. I havent read a book for ages now, well aside from my study materials. all because of internet :)

Sounds like an interesting book. Can't believe her husband didn't get her lipstick! LOL

Aah! If there's anything I can't stand more that Chick Lit, it's Bitch Lit. Come to think of it, I hardly read any fiction nowadays, so... I'll give this a miss. But thanks for the pithy review!

This sounds very interesting - I have always wondered what goes on inside the head of people like that.

P.S. It's frustrating that we cannot get most of the books you review here in the U.S. I would love to read some of them (especially yours!)
