Springtime For Thatcher.,
This review is from: Chocolat (Paperback)
I agree with all the points made in the other 1 and 2 star reviews. But the really awful thing about this book is the right-wing political subtext. It's about a business woman being bothered by people with annoying moral objections. You could take the same themes and write a story about a multinational chocolate company battling with environmentalists who wanted them to stop using palm oil. 'The Black Man' seems to mean 'the nanny state'. Remember that Harris was a grammar school teacher.
Perhaps Roux's red hair is a tribute to Thatcher. If so it's interesting that Vianne and Armande's eyes are that dark shade of brown that looks completely black from a distance!

What a ludicrous (and possibly even malicious) review. I think it should be removed, as it has nothing to do with the book at all. The reviewer is clearly deranged...
