In memory of my great - grandmother, Marie Andre Sorin (1892 - 1968). Heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped to make this book possible: to my family for support, childminding and somewhat baffled encouragement; to Kevin for handling all the tedious paperwork; to Anouchka for the loan of Pantoufle.

My books often focus on small communities and the interaction between their inhabitants. Nor is the book set at any particular time. The smaller the group, the more dramatic the consequences when someone introduces change. Lansquenet is not a real place, though it is closely based on a little town I know well and I have tried to make it as authentic as I can. It could be anywhere. The rivalries and jealousies of people are almost the same wherever you go. Nor is the book set at any particular time

Comments to eBook Chocolat

I throughly enjoyed reading this addictive chocolate story about a mysterious woman and her young daughter who arrive in a small French town on the tail end of a carnival, turning the town and the people in it completely upside down. There's a little bit of magic, a hint of witchcraft, some riverboat gypsies, and a large dose of humanity!

The book is different from the movie version. It's better, although I enjoyed the movie as well. However, there's a lot more secrets and deception hidden in the shadows of this quaint little Christian town than first meets the eye. While the story may appear to be about good and evil, outsiders and towns folk, sinners and saints, it's first and foremost a story about how people are more alike than different. Everyone has a story behind their mask, hidden pain we don't see, if only we can open our eyes and see each other with understanding. Plus an author who can make your tastebuds yearn for a mouthful of chocolate from her tantilzing descriptions, has definitely done her job!!

Within this chocolate covered story lies a deeper message about being judgmental and forgiveness. How even the most seemingly righteous among us, still suffer from past imperfections. It's a story about loving one another for who we are, letting go of the past, excepting that people make mistakes, children grow up, and loved ones pass away. Its a beautiful message about facing your fears, discovering who you are, and finding where you belong. It's a story about celebrating life! Read it with a piece of your favorite decadent chocolate for some heartfelt moments of kindness and brotherly love!!

"There is a kind of sorcery in all cooking; in the choosing of ingredients, the process of mixing, grating, melting, infusing and flavoring the recipes." —Joanne Harris, Chocolat

"I don't think there is such a thing as a good or bad Christian. ... Only good or bad people." —Joanne Harris, Chocolat

"Life is what you celebrate. All of it. Even it's end." —Joanne Harris, Chocolat

I almost didn't read this book because of some of the bad reviews that stated it wasn't written well and was boring and had bad character development. Hmmm. Well, I found it to be one of the best books I've read in a long time. In my opinion, those that hate the book object to the main character, Vianne's, attitude toward the church (thus missing the whole point of the book). She states from the beginning of the book, she doesn't believe in the established church, but she feels there is room in the world for everyone, whatever their beliefs. This is a timely tale about bullying (yes, even adults can be bad bullys!) It's a tale of tolerance in a world full of divides. It's about how people can get so caught up in their fervent belief systems, that they lose touch with humanity, and become short-sighted to the point they think everyone should have the exact same worldview. (That's all belief systems, not just the Christian church.) The prose is absolutely gorgeous! Joanne Harris is a master of prose, much like Barbara Kingsolver, another favorite author of mine. It sends the message that life is for living and not a perpetual funeral. Yes, bad things happen, but so do good things. We all have the strength to face life head on and come out alright in the end. It's about what your focus is. If you are determined to be unhappy, you will be. It's part coming of age, part modern morality play, part study of life. If you liked such books as She's Come Undone, The Help, The Bean Trees, The Mill River Recluse, then you'll like this one. I'm a voracious reader of all books from classics to modern fiction and this is one I recommend very highly!

If you saw the movie...then read the book! The movie was based very loosely on the book...and trust me the book was so much better, then when you get over the shock of how the two stories varied, read the girl with no shadow, which is book 2, which will knock your socks off, but dont stop there, be sure to read peaches for father francis...oh wow...see how his life changes in a quick turn of events. What great reads, perfect for fall...Thanks Joanne for taking me along on this wonderful journey!

This is one of those times when I watched the movie before reading the book on which it is based. The ending of the book differs from that of the movie, and I won't be surprised if the casting of Johnny Depp affected the movie ending! :)

The book itself is a delight, with the two principal characters (Vianne Rocher and Francis Reynaud) getting adequate attention. The writing style is such that it feels both of them are directly speaking to you, and there are lines that are sure to tug your heart. Sample this - "I sent them out with a sugar mouse each and watched them fan across the square like dandelion seeds in the wind".

I saw the movie many years ago and this is one of those rare instances where I think that the movie was far better than the book. The constant repetitions of the same themes became rather tiresome. I also didn’t see any real plot. It was more a like a lengthy character study and I ended up not really caring for most of the characters anyway. I have to say that since I love food and also enjoy reading detailed descriptions about it, those parts were truly enjoyable. I also enjoyed the atmospheric description of being in a French country village.

First of all, I was expecting the book to be more like the film. It is not! This book takes place in the present. There isn't a mayor AND a priest; there's only the priest. While many of the characters are similar to those in the film, I think it's better to enjoy the film and book for what they are: two separate things.

The characters in this story are well developed. The plot moves along quickly. However, there are so many chapters that mention food, I think I gained weight just reading this book!

This book would be very good if you're looking for a cosy read on a rainy day. It's sweet. It's cute. Yes, there's a sprinkling of magic, more so than in the movie. This book would be suitable for young adults and older.
