Book Description

1 May 2007

'Who died?' I said. 'Or is it a secret?'

'My mother, Vianne Rocher.'

Seeking refuge and anonymity in the cobbled streets of Montmartre, Yanne and her daughters, Rosette and Annie, live peacefully, if not happily, above their little chocolate shop.Nothing unusual marks them out; no red sachets hang by the door.The wind has stopped - at least for a while.Then into their lives blows Zozie de l'Alba, the lady with the lollipop shoes, and everything begins to change....

But this new friendship is not what it seems.Ruthless, devious and seductive, Zozie de l'Alba has plans of her own - plans that will shake their world to pieces.And with everything she loves at stake, Yanne must face a difficult choice; to flee, as she has done so many times before, or to confront her most dangerous enemy.....

Herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sinister magic in Paris 21 Jun 2007
Format:Hardcover
First thing's first: you have to read Chocolat before reading this book, as many of the emotional issues will only make the most minimal of sense. And I mean read the book, not watch the Juliette Binoche film, which is great in its own way, but not the book of everyday magic that is Chocolat the novel.

Zozie de l'Alba breezes into Vianne and Anouk's life (now calling themselves Yanne and Annie), seemingly from nowhere and they become fast friends depending on her for moral and emotional support. But she is not what she seems. With a second daughter, Rosette, born after the events of the first book, Vianne has a new life to protect, but is unaware of the threat beneath her own roof.

I have to begin by saying I did really enjoy this book. The occult undertones in Chocolat are more obvious this time, and Harris makes a great villain out of Zozie. I found myself hating her more and more as the book went on and cheering on the character of Anouk as she finds herself.

My one big problem is Vianne. She is frightened and worried and wants to settle down and make a 'normal' life for herself and her children. The book is told from the points of view of Anouk, Zozie and Vianne, but Vianne spends three quarters of the book talking about stability, wanting to be normal, not wanting to be a witch, being afraid of losing Anouk, of losing stability ad nauseum. Her parts are reptitive and not as enjoyable as the unrepentent Zozie or Anouk nearing the verge of womanhood. Saying that, I had to keep reading near the end, I was completely drawn in, which is why the book has four stars.

If you liked Chocolat, don't expect simply more of the same, but a good story nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bewitching 30 May 2007
Format:Hardcover
Having never written a review before, I approach this knowing that due to differing tastes, my main aim of convincing everyone to read at least one Joanne Harris book will never become a reality. However I will begin this by commenting that this is the first book I have ever read that has ever prompted me to write a review. The Lollipop shoes picks up perfectly from where Chocolat left off ...(me wanting more!) Is is a truly spellbinding read and allows the reader to plunge into a world where magic happens. When the story ends you find yourself again craving more, and actually caring for the characters. The only critisism I could possibly offer is that the book seems to follow the movie much more than the book. If I remember correctly Roux settled down with Josephine in the book, yet no mention is made of her in The Lollipop Shoes, which leads me to believe it continues from the ending of the film, where Roux returns to Vianne. However such a small point could never put me off recommending this book to anyone who will listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very worthy sequel 16 May 2008
By Lincs Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Sometimes when you read the sequel of a book that you have really enjoyed you close the book when you've finished feeling quite sad because it just didnt live up to the expectation - with Lollipop Shoes I closed the book very sad as I just didnt want it to end. I wasnt disappointed in the least and in fact, I think I enjoyed it more than Chocolat.

Joanne Harris re-acquaints the reader with Vianne, Anouke and Roux - all well-loved characters. Brand new and major characters are Rosette - Vianne's second daughter and Zozie, the mysterious lady who appears to be a guardian angel to the little family.
Vianne, Anouke and Zozie take turns to tell the story, and as each tell the same story, each one gives their own different view.

The story is full of mystery and magic, interwoven with the story of Vianne and her family's struggle to make a living from their chocolate shop, Vianne's relationship with new man Thierry and old beau Roux. Running alongside the main story are the individual stories of the shop's customers - including the slightly aloof Madame, the local cafe owner and a street-painter, amongst others.

The story turns quite dark and atmospheric towards the end whilst still seeming realistic, and I certainly couldnt turn the pages fast enough to find out the ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware red shoes! 1 Oct 2007
By Nadia
Format:Hardcover
This is the sequel to Chocolat, and re-introduces the author's much loved characters, Vianne and her daughter Anuke, the gypsy Rue, and two new characters; Zozie, a woman who is nothing at all like she seems, and Rosette, Vianne's daughter by Rue.
The story is told from the differing view points of Zozie, Vianne and Anuke, and Joanne Harris captures their three distinct voices perfectly.
On the run after the down fall of her nemesis the priest, Vianne and Anuke settle in Paris, where Vianne opens a chocolate shop and struggles to create a sense of normality for herself and her daughters. However, she is barely breaking even, and she has the added worry of Rosette, who refuses to speak or eat with a spoon, though she hears and understands everything, and what is more, she shows signs of the gift that Anuke longs to explore and Vianne tries her best to ignore.
Their fortunes change when Zozie breezes in to town. Soon the shop is thriving and Vianne and Anuke wonder how they ever managed without her. But the price for this newfound happiness is far beyond anything either of them expect.
This is a deeply atmospheric novel. The sinister nature of the story builds towards the inevitable climax and the suspense literally keeps the reader glued to the page.
It's very refreshing to have at least some of the story told by the villain and Joanne Harris does it beautifully.
Lollypop shoes has the same sharp-tongued wit and charm as Chocolat, though it is a somewhat darker tale in which magic features much more prominently. In spite of that, the book feels firmly grounded in reality and in no way resembles a fantasy novel. This book and its predecessor far in a way surpass the author's other works.
