Il secondo capitolo della saga di Chocolat
Sono passati quattro anni da quando Vianne Rocher e sua figlia Anouk hanno lasciato Lansquenet. Hanno peregrinato di villaggio in villaggio, senza mai trovare stabile dimora: lo scandalo e le chiacchiere le hanno seguite e perseguitate, ancora di più quando Vianne ha dato alla luce la piccola Rosette. Alla fine hanno trovato rifugio a Montmartre, a Parigi. Nell’anonimato della metropoli, Vianne ha aperto una cioccolateria e il vento ha smesso di soffiare, almeno per un po’. Finché nella loro vita non arriva Zozie de L’Alba, la signora con le scarpe rosse. Dà una mano in negozio e ben presto, con la sua vitalità e simpatia, conquista la fiducia di Vianne e Anouk. Ma Zozie non è quello che sembra: ambigua e seducente, ha un piano che minaccia di distruggere il loro mondo. E mentre tutto quello che ama è in pericolo, Vianne deve scegliere: fuggire, come ha già fatto tante volte, oppure affrontare il nemico più pericoloso, le proprie paure.

This is Harris’s follow-up to Chocolat . Vianne and now two daughters have relocated from the rural town of their initial setting, Lansquenet, to Paris. The novel is tort-like in the density of its imagery, particularly early on. Zozie is a witch like Vianne, but without the self-control and kind hea Leggi tutto
3.5 STARS - MILD SPOILERS As the second book in the Chocolat series, I was excited to read The Lollipop Shoes. And it was reasonably good, but I just hated Zozie so much! I mean, we were supposed to hate her (she's the antagonist in the book and you know that from the start) but I don't think you wer Leggi tutto

I’ve been sitting in my chair thinking about what I was going to write about the story I just finished. The question, “what did you think?” always makes me feel like it is some kind of test and I am going to give the wrong answer. I try not to think about it that way. I always think that this is not Leggi tutto

The spider weaves its web elegantly. It is a thing of beauty to watch. But, to see it ensnare its prey is horrific, yet equally fascinating. Harris spins her own web in this delicious sequel to Chocolat. Who is the spider and who is the prey?
I started this book with a lot of expectations and i am happy to report that I enjoyed it thoroughly. Joanne Harris's Lollipop shoes is like dark,creamy chocolate with a hint of spice-totally heady and difficult to resist. Narrated from three POVs(Yanne, Anouk and Zozie), the narrative flows seamles Leggi tutto
This is a sequel to Chocolat , and having loved that book, having been enchanted by the characters, I thought I'd love this. Wrong. Still intact from Chocolat is Harris's ability to weave the details of a thing or place so vividly that they become secondary characters--in this case the chocolates and Leggi tutto
Sequel to Chocolat, published as The Lollipop Shoes outside of U.S. Chocolat was full of colors and enchantment that we never really knew the source of. The Girl with No Shadow reveals these right away. This story starts with none of the enchantment and mystery of Chocolat. We are introduced to Zozie Leggi tutto
