MIL lent me this last week and as there is a complete book drought in my house at the moment, and have had no chance to go to the book shop, I read it out of desperation, not really expecting to enjoy it. I disliked Chocolat so thought Lollipop Shoes would be an endurance.
I really liked it! Not my type of book at all, but found it rivetting, and really well written.
Intereted to read this as have got both on order from Amazon marketplace after reading 'Gentlement and Players this weekend, which I did not expect to enjoy, (an not a comfortable read but found riveting and unputdownable.
yes, flyingmonkey, that's what I thought. Was expecting a dozy read about chocolate and magic tricks, however it was getting pretty sinister towards the end, and it was brilliantly written, really kept the feeling of suspense and impending creepiness.
