The SPICES MADE ME DO IT!
That is all I could think of as I read this book. Part magical/realism, part romance, this novel while poetic in some parts just becomes a little to fake for me. The characters just aren't that relatable.
Plus I just wasn't expecting it to be so heavy on the romance side.
But if you like Chocolat, or Like water for chocolate this book is sort of in the same genre- just not done as well.
