In tiny Lansquenet, where nothing much has changed in a hundred years, beautiful newcomer Vianne Rocher and her exquisite chocolate shop arrive and instantly begin to play havoc with Lenten vows. Each box of luscious bonbons comes with a free gift: Vianne's uncanny perception of its buyer's private discontents and a clever, caring cure for them. Is she a witch? Soon the parish no longer cares, as it abandons itself to temptation, happiness, and a dramatic face-off between Easter solemnity and the pagan gaiety of a chocolate festival. Chocolat's every page offers a description of chocolate to melt in the mouths of chocoholics, francophiles, armchair gourmets, cookbook readers, and lovers of passion everywhere. It's a must for anyone who craves an escapist read, and is a bewitching gift for any holiday.

3.5 Czekolada
Nie ma chyba osoby, która nie lubiłaby czekolady. Słodycz, przez wielu uważana za 'poprawiacza' humoru. Idealna na ponury, deszczowy wieczór. Taka jest też książka Joanne Harris. Samotna kobieta z dzieckiem zjawiająca się w małym miasteczku budzi sensację. Zwraca na siebie uwagę nie tylko nieślubnym...

How I got between its sheets: When a friend loaned me what I found out was a sequel to this book, simply had to purchase the first one with my persnickety self. What stimulated me: • The setting – provincial French village of Lansquenet and Vianne’s chocolate shop seem back in time and fairyt...
