Found this in my drafts:


I could do with a bit more excess. From now on I'm going to be immoderate--and volatile--I shall enjoy loud music and lurid poetry. I shall be rampant."

I think it's impossible not to love a book that contains the above sentiment.  Chocolat is a fantastic novel - different from the movie but in a good way.  Joanne Harris is master of the lovely turn of phrase and perfect sentiment.  Not that this is a treacley sweet book - far from it.  It's balanced just right between reserve and rampantness.  I really really enjoyed it.  I give it an 8.5. (I love my .5's).
