The Root Of All Evil By Dewi Anggraeni
One day, she got to know that her father was seriously ill. She just had to go back and see her father.
When she arrived in Jakarta, she had a real cultural shock. So many things had changed.
The people in Australia are always straight forward. In Jakarta, everything is not as it seems to be. One word can have a thousand different meaning. Injustice seems to be a way of life. To them, it's fated.
She met her ex-boyfriend who had jilted her and now assumed that they can continue where they left it last time.
Then she also met a night club hostess who had to do what she is doing for the sake of her children. But when injustice done to her, everyone kept quiet.
I don't under stand the tile of this story. The Root of All Evil. At first I thought it had to do with some mambo jumbo. But then it seems to me this story is about cultural shock. Ones can have cultural shock when one returned to own country
To me this book worth 1 star. Too long winded and a lot of hesitation
