Independent career woman Ratu needs a boyfriend—now. She can’t stand her mother’s nagging, and she’d rather die than be forced into an arranged marriage. Taking matters into her own hands, she trawls the internet in hopes of finding her dream man: tall, slim and look like a model. So when she meets a handsome stranger online who ticks all the boxes, will he turn out to be Mr Right?

Love, Lies and Indomee is a sharp and witty novel about the struggles of finding love in 21st-century Jakarta.



It’s best to go into the novel not taking the events too seriously, but dive into Ratu’s world, and keep an open mind to be surprised by the thought-provoking social commentary of this easy read.
