I liked Chocolat and although I do like how Joanne Harris writes, I just could not finish this book! It was quite boring and not enough dialogue to keep it interesting. But perhaps some other reader would feel very differently about it!
Harris is superb in this book. It is much better than Chocolat!
Blackberry Wine is a classic of a beach book...a poetic pastiche of magical realism and travelogue-by-surrogate...In Harris's hands the gentle tug of the past is like a tsunami.
The magic in Lansquenet returns....
I liked this book as much if not more than Chocolat. Jay is a struggling writer living in London. Hi slast and first book, a best seller was written 10 years ago. Jay chucks it all, leaves for France and buys a farmhouse on the edge of the village made famous in Chocolat. As he gets to know the people in this village, and the mystery behind his reclusive neighbor his view of a life faded begins to change. And then there is Joe...always Joe the ghost a father he never had.
