This chocolat is not bitter

There are stereotypical characters in the novel Chocolat. However, Ms Harris carefully enlists their help to tell this story. One of her best choices is to have the narrative switch between the characters. This is one way that the reader can have all perspectives and still retain the first person point of view. The story is well written and is fun to read. The reader can follow along as if following a diary of the days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. The movie is pretty close to the story and can enhance the reading experience.
