Return to the world of the multi-million-copy bestselling Chocolat…. (PDF) The Strawberry Thief by Joanne Harris Review PDF

Vianne Rocher has settled down. Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has finally become her home. With Rosette, her ‘special’ child, she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river, is part of the community. Even Reynaud, the priest, has become a friend.

But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy village is once more thrown into disarray.

The arrival of Narcisse’s relatives, the departure of an old friend and the opening of a mysterious new shop in the place of the florist’s across the square – one that mirrors the chocolaterie, and has a strange appeal of its own – all seem to herald some kind of change: a confrontation, a turbulence – even, perhaps, a murder…

Review

 

Compelling, captivating, incredibly moving, The Strawberry Thief whirls you into a thrilling world you will never forget. Harris’s Vianne is as unforgettable and courageous as ever, and Lansquenet-sous-Tannes is depicted with such heart and beautiful detail that it is marvellously alive – as everything in the village changes overnight. I loved this book. A perfect novel that shimmers with brilliance and truth―Kate Williams

With The Strawberry Thief Harris proves that earlier episodes of Chocolat were only the first tiers in an expanding box of delights. But just as she reveals new layers in her mysterious, magical world she also opens a doorway to darkness. Mark her down as a sweet tooth at your peril, for there’s a sharp bite too. I devoured it in one go―Christopher Fowler

Beautifully written, enchanting yet oh-so real―Independent

As her legions of fans already know, Joanne Harris has created a very special place in Lansquenet-sous-Tannes. It’s the kind of quaint (yet ever-evolving) little village that we feel we might stumble upon on our next trip to France. It is too a place of magic and mysteries, and Harris excels in this delicate balance of realism and enchantment. This alchemy is amply demonstrated In The Strawberry Thief, in which we meet old friends and new, uncover long-held secrets and, along the way, explore the nature of guilt, responsibility and love. It will intrigue and charm readers every bit as much as Chocolat―Monica Ali

Sometimes you don’t need to worry about a novel at all. You open the book, start reading, and find that it’s sheer pleasure from start to finish. The Strawberry Thief is a delight―James Runcie

So wise, so atmospheric, so beautifully written―Marian Keyes

Harris…creates an evocative world in The Strawberry Thief, and in her explorations of magic, family, grief and recovery, it is sure to delight fans of Chocolat―Observer

Deliciously compelling―Prima
