The writing was also quite elementary, though if you’re after an easy read that is also quite enjoyable at lokmo then this book will offer that.
Che poi me aamaro spiega, come fa. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Mi tiri avanti la stria per seicento pagine e poi il finale osceno me lo risolvi in meno di dieci? Jun 11, Gilden rated it liked it. When Laure makes the decision she does, it also effects Ameline which send I have really enjoyed Lesley Lokko’s books and Bitter Chocolate didn’t disappoint me.
An Absolute Deception
And then towards the end it became drawn out and the story seemed to drag. I’m really disappointed with this book. However, you never can tell i can tolerate the size of a book, if the stories are worthy of my time.
The other characters faring little better, on the whole I found them stereotypical and largely forgettable. I wish the author had decided to tell just lesey This book tells 3 different stories within the one novel.

It stored a collection of new books printed in English Oh how I would trade places right now; Melbourne for Bali… was it only 5 weeks ago that we were lying by the pool in the 32 degree heat? Laure and Ameline have grown up together in Haiti, while Melanie was raised in London, the financially spoiled but emotionally neglected daughter of an aging rock star.
They do achieve things during the course of ciocccolato story, but for the most part they only get on by doing “glamour” work, dating rich boyfriends – even if they happen to be an obvious asshole – or just by being beautiful and therefore finding men to indulge them. I didn’t necessarily like all of the protagonists, especially Melanie, but I could see why they did what they did, and all of their personalities were unique.
Quotes from Bitter Chocolate. Just could not get into this. It’s about three young women Laure, Melanie and Amelina Three different characters that find themselves in the end. The third sideline tells the story of Laure’s former twenty-something reste-avec Ameline oesley her survival in Haiti and England.
At times I had to really concentrate on who was who.

Tre caratteri, educazioni, ceti sociali diversi. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
Secondo me la Lokko ha voluto osare un po’ troppo. Melanie, the rock star’s daughter who has everything money can buy, except the love she craves. The realisation came to him quite suddenly.
After all, reading requires attention and effort. The characters shine in their own light, all of them vastly different from the others. I suggested it every young girlthey will find something That they’ll make them strong again. Ameline is her ‘reste-avec,’ a servant child chosen to grow up in amado household with Laure.
Icoccolato get separated as one becomes pregnant outside of marriage like her mother who abandoned her when young. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Laure St Lazare is the 16 year old daughter of a runaway mother who lives with her widowed, loveless grandmother in a rambling mansion in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
As sweeping epics go, this was okay, different as usual and your not too sure on how everything always wraps up so neatly. Annelise is an A class fashion designer based in London, yet we know her roots are both German and South African. Wonder if there will be a sequel. 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.
Melanie could have been a totally different book.
