He paused for a second, his fingers touching the door handle. It is basically a story of the trials and tribulations of the lives and relationships of these girls as they grow up from adolescence into adulthood. I didn’t enjoy this. Unlike that book, Chocolate was only about one person from her start as a poor helpless women to her rise amaor the top!
Quotes from Bitter Chocolate. Incontriamo Anneliese Zander de Saint Phalle, una famosissima stilista londinese che si appresta a concludere la propria carriera.
Tranne Ian forselseley c’era un personaggio descritto in modo negativo! I really enjoyed all her other books but I found this one far too long.

The writing was also quite elementary, though if you’re after an easy read that is also quite enjoyable at times then this book will offer that. Will look for other books by this author.

At times I had to really concentrate on who was who. Laure e Ameline amiche da sempre ad Haiti si separano e si trovano catapultate in mondi completamente diversi. It would have worked better if the Author stayed with just one story. Ho provato sentimenti oesley emozioni tutti completamente diversi durante la lettura: Books by Lesley Lokko.
The ending was disappointing as I felt there was far too much left unanswered. The ending was “wet” and diserved more of a “climax”! Ma se, come me, leggete questo libro in piena crisi letteraria e ci mettete una vita, vi accorgerete che ci sono delle stonature davvero imperdonabili!
I recommend this book for those who like Sidney Sheldon and Judith Krantz. If you want trash why not just watch TV?
In addition, the one narrative secret that Lokko holds onto, one supposed to enthuse some kind of mystery and joy to the proceedings, is blatantly signposted right from the start, then amounts to nothing much when it is finally revealed.
She moves to the US. No trivia or quizzes yet. Apr 05, Justine Crandles rated it it was ok.
While i love the author’s narrative, i think she spent a lot of pages on mundane descriptions. The ending, what happened?
It was an interesting story though, and I would have loved to see what a more talented author could have made of it. Everything works out in the end. Spanning decades and continents, it’s the cioccolwto of three women: This book centers on the story of Ameline, Laure and Melanie. I was excited to read this novel, but unfortunately it did not live up to other Lokko books, good to read though.
Lists with This Book. Now the girls are grown up, Ameline is little better than a servant to Laure’s grandmother, but she and Laure love each other like sisters.
