I love Chocolat, and I could never get bored of it, I don't think. But I didn't get on so well with The Lollipop Shoes the first time I read it, and this time even less so. Vianne without her magic, without her spark -- for most of the book anyway -- is a lot more boring, and I hated the tangles of plot Zozie festooned around the place. It was hard to care about Thierry and the part of the plot that involved him, and Roux didn't come in soon enough.

The ending is too little, too late -- and I'd rather the domestic magic of Chocolat than the showdown between witch and witch.

I'm hoping that the third book of this trilogy will be more like Chocolat, but I'm not going to read it until I'm sure I'm in the mood for it...
