    This is Harris’s follow up to Chocolat Vianne and now two daughters have relocated from the rural town of their initial setting Lansuenet 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 heart She seems mostly like a soul catcher a devil in a red dress looking to acuire souls She sees power in Vianne’s daughter Anouk and tries to gain her loyalty The story is of Anouk coming of age and of Vianne rediscovering herself There is considerable shadow imagery here Are shadows souls? Are they like the daemons of The Golden Compass spiritual alter egos? They appear as animals like those from Pullman’s books Are they the shadows of Dante’s Inferno shades? The game is played throughout leading to a climax battle between the two powers Joanne Harris image from her siteHarris returns to her structural notion of centering the climax on a major holy day Last time it was Easter Here it is Christmas Parallelism is rampant as Harris points out that the witches both lie about their past assume multiple identities have issues with their parentage cast spells of different sorts It was a very enjoyable read The similarity to Chocolat was considerable but that is to be expected when the same characters return I did not love it but I did like it a lot It sagged for me over time I felt that Harris was too fond of repetition and that it could have been maybe forty pages shorter but that is a uibble Read EnjoyEXTRA STUFFLinks to the author’s personal Twitter and Tumblr pages

    35 STARS MILD SPOILERSAs 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 were supposed to hate her as much as I did As I do I just hated how she influenced AnoukAnnie and how VianneYanne didn't notice that she was evil I hated everything that she did becoming friendly to everyone and taking over the shop and how she secretly laughed at Vianne and Anouk I hated her so much I'm not sure if you knew yet And I honestly think that the amount of time that Zozie spent with Vianne could have been cut shorter So I can't say that I loved this book but it was well written and the ending brought it up an extra half a star I don't think I'll read the next book uite yet but I'll read it eventually And hopefully I'll enjoy it a bit

    I’ve been sitting in my chair thinking about what I was going to write about the story I just finished The uestion “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 the uestion that I should be answering My uestion would be “what did you feel?” Ahhh yes that’s it Let me tell you about the story by telling you how I felt The whole time I was reading The Girl With No Shadow I feltanxiousAnxious to start the story anxious to know what was going to happen anxious to find out why the characters in this second story were so different than in the first book anxious to know what had happened to them anxious about the new character in the story stomach churning bile in the back of my throat anxious about what she appeared to be about what she was going to do what she did and what she said The first chapter shocked my socks off Too much information It scared me not like I had never heard about it before just to see someone – some character saying the things that were printed on the pages Who was this? What did she have to do with the story and the characters I had left in the first book? Where were they? I wanted them not this bad person And there they were so sad so melancholy so not right so ordinary? I wanted them to snap out of the gloom I wanted to shake them and slap them until they could see what was happening and how wrong everything was I wanted them to drink a cup of hot chocolate because that makes everything better right? I wanted to drink a cup of hot chocolate to make me feel betterThere were moments of hopefulness glimpses of almost happiness and snippets of laughter Then Bam Then what? Don’t get me wrong there were answers eventually lots of them There were a few shocking moments at the end Then a glow began to clear away some of the tarnish and haze and allowed a sparkle to shine here and there I’m not so anxious now except to start the next story

    The spider weaves its web elegantly It is a thing of beauty to watch But to see it ensnare its prey is horrific yet eually fascinating Harris spins her own web in this delicious seuel 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 darkcreamy chocolate with a hint of spice totally heady and difficult to resist Narrated from three POVsYanne Anouk and Zozie the narrative flows seamlessly I loved how Joanne let a huge chunk of the narrative be told from Zozie's perspective I don't really think i have read too many novels that have been narrated from the Villain's point of viewAlsoeven the minor characters seemed etched out and the writing exceptionally vividDespite being a seuel to Chocolat this one reads like a stand alone bookI don't think not reading the first book before tackling his one matters muchThe spellstotemsfables and stories about faeries and witches that Zozie and Yanne mention make the book exotic and fascinatingIt's no secret that I am a huge fan of magic realism Joanne's book is a fine specimen of that genreThe writing is measuredyet intimate and warmjust like the characters in the book There is something dangerously appealing about a slinkychameleon like villain and I loved Zozie's character the mosteven than Anouk and Yanne The bullying and name calling that goes on in schools also forms a huge part of the story atleast when the narration is done from the perspective of the eleven year old AnoukJoanne's writing is breathtaking and flows beautifullyThis has to be one of the best books I have read in a long long time and I don't think I can rave enough about it People who are fascinated with the art of chocolate making will love the details that Joanne shares with us and the book is about good food as much as it is about anything else

    This is a seuel 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 the chocolate shop in fact it is that uality that keeps this from getting a D What is missing is the sense of whimsy the light handed treatment of magic and any possibly of liking these characters much less getting to know them there are so many I lost track of who was who This book is also too long the characters pretty much whine incessantly or twirl their hypothetical mustaches in the case of the villainess in a rotating first person that had me continually popped out of the story as I tried to figure out who the hell was narrating it didn't follow a set order and there was no textual indicator for who the POV was apparently the image at the top of each page changes depending on who's narrating but I never got that when I was actually reading itVery little happens in these many many pages and Vianne's character so lovely in Chocolat is reduced to the most boring woman imaginable Parts of Chocolat are conveniently discarded to make the love story poignant If Chocolat had a dash of magic Harris threw the entire bottle in for this one Like Vanilla a little goes a long way and too much ruins the recipe I'm into Mesoamerican stuff but I couldn't keep track of all the Mexican gods and signs and other magic the villainess uses and I'm not sure I entirely got what was going on in the thrilling finale All in all an utter disappointment for an author this good to a seuel to such a great bookRated C

    I really really wanted to like this book I have such fond memories of Chocolat probably because I read a borrowed copy on the plane home from a trip to Paris replete with French chocolates but still I can't help but think that the seuel almost ruins the magic of the first one it ended sohopefully and then The Girl With No Shadow happens and undercuts it allAs a stand alone book though which it very well could be I'm much happier with it and if it were a stand alone book I'd be tempted to give it four stars instead of three although the ending was a little syruppy intriguing characters I really like the shifting point of view and charmingly if a little too sweetly written Having finished I feel a bit as if I've gorged on chocolates pleasant memories and oh so good going down but all the sugar gets cloying after a bitwhich isn't necessarily all bad given how wonderful the sugar overdose is to begin with

    Seuel to Chocolat published as The Lollipop Shoes outside of USChocolat 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 who is leaving her previous life Each chapter comes from the point of view of either Zozie Vianne or Anouk This threw me at first until I realized we had switched characters Roux returns but is not the same character he was in Chocolat Vianne’s life before Chocolat and between that story and this one is explained where Chocolat never really addressed this For some reason I always got the impression that Chocolat took place in the 1950s or so but according to this story it took place in the present Vianne and Anouk seem out of place in the present day and it was hard to wrap my mind aroundIt was a good story but kind of flat for me I prefer Chocolat

    If Chocolat was Dark Chocolate with a creamy milk chocolate filling then The Girl with No Shadow is a Dark Chocolate truffle with a smooth creamy finishThe Girl is not a simple tale It's a complex tale that mirrors life and the way we interact with each other the things we choose not to see the choices we make because we believe them to be right and the ultimate decision of getting back to that place within yourself that truly represents who you areIt's about love vengeance family longing truths and half truths growing up and expanding To me the story is a darker and sadder tale than it's predecessor and while it ends on a realistic enough note it doesn't completely satisfy you When you're finished with this story you realize that the journey is never ending and while life is never about an ending that is given to you in a neat little bow it is about making your own magic and being happy with what you haveI leave it up to you to finish and try to decipher my meanings I'm in love with this book I'm biased because I love Joanne Harris and if you've read Chocolat then you will appreciate this book
