    "I found this not bad at all, really. Good for young adults, or someone who wants some (really) light reading. Elements of magic realism. You don't get as much of that in western culture. God book for the time it takes to read."

    "Like Water for Chocolate is a romance book based on magical fantasy but includes a realism safeguard. The book focuses too much on romance and uses the magical element to maintain focus on the story line but doesn't really present any notable literature writing that can be considered. "

    "This is probably the best culinary themed romance novel ever written. I don't know how much competition it has within that space, but this creative mix of different interests actually works so well. This is a stylistic, believable approach to romance and is a great read."

    "Like Water for Chocolate is one of the best books about narcissistic mothers. This book is a good read for those who want a simple story and accept things the way they are without explanation. If you can accept a fairytale without questioning anything, then this would be a perfect book for you. I prefer stories and characters that are more complex and not too "novela-like". Overall it was a very easy book to read with conflicts that just resolve themselves eventually...not the type of story I could buy into."

    "I'm addicted to these novels. But sadly this book almost killed my addiction. This has some of the worst writing I have even seen. It honestly makes me want to puke. Why is this so highly rated?! I'm sooo disappointed."

    "I'm not sure if one could call this one of the absolute best works ever written by a Latin author, but it is quite good, albeit pretty depressing at times. It sort of resembles some traditional fairly tales many people are familiar with, combined with elements of the author's native culture and certain kind of magical themes. I have to say, in general, I really enjoy how it combines the familiar and the unusual. I'd recommend the book, or, if you are pressed for time, the movie, at least."

    "I have always had little interest on reading romantic books but this one moved me. The book has beautiful metaphors and the content made me so emotional. I loved every bit of this book and I could read this book again and again."

    "This book is a great romantic tragedy that will draw you in. It is about two people that fall in love but due to their culture are unable to be together. It also talks about food. Very good book to read."

    "On a whim, I was looking for a good book with food in the title. I checked out Like Water for Chocolate, but it seemed a bit childish for me. I would rather a bit more mature of a book, but it could be good for some ages."
  • Nicole Fisher
    Written on May 7, 2018
    "This novel is a lively family saga that centers around forbidden love and moves across several generations. The story relies enchantingly upon fate, magic and a taste for the supernatural. The kitchen becomes the origin of alchemy that a passionately prepared meal can fill diners with lust, sorrow, or, an upset stomach depending upon the cook's mood. The story of Tita and Pedro, the seemingly star-crossed lovers of whom the book centers around is full of memorable characters, family secrets and spellbinding meals. This novel by Laura Esquivel is a must-read for anyone who loves good food and romance."
