Chocolat by Joanne Harris

Published in 1999. 306 pages.

Original cover.

Movie tie-in cover.

Chocolat was the pick for my book club's November/December meeting. We met last week - but I just finished the book today. I found it to be magical! Now I want to watch the film version. I'm also interested in the recent sequel The Girl with No Shadow.



  1. Warning. The film will make you crave chocolate, red coats and Johnny Depp.

  2. Karianne: warning noted.

    not that i consider any of those cravings to be necessarily bad things. :)

  3. I love the film. I think the film is so much richer than the book. Warning: it is different, but I prefer the changes. I found this a difficult book to read. It wasn't one that I enjoyed.

  4. You know, I read this one too, but I liked the film much better. And the film doesnt stay true to the book. Maybe I liked the film so much because of Johnny Depp and the chocolate, two of my favorite things ;)

  5. This one is on my to read list for 2009. I am looking forward to it and glad to read your positive review.
