Having said that, I have a few minor difficulties with this book: the ending was very abrupt, I especially would have liked to find out more about Melanie and if she would break or change as her worst fears became reality; this way we are left wondering how she ends up. As others have already pointed out, Laures and Amelines family past is never really explained, there are a lot of questions left to be answered. And, finally, I felt that the character of Marc was missing a lot of pieces. There were a lot of hints as to his past, but they were never explained, and this way I never really understood why he was often so cold/rude on one hand and so driven on the other hand. Now he's just another "enigmatic black man" like Tende or Riitho (although these characters are more understandable and likeable).
So all in all, I give Bitter Chocolate 4 stars instead of 5. But I'm very much looking forward to Lesley Lokko's new novel, Rich girl poor girl; I can't wait to dive in!!
The end felt rather rushed and with loose ends - maybe there will be a sequel - which I am looking forward to reading already!!
