Journal Entry 1 by DrCris from Templestowe, Victoria Australia on Saturday, November 21, 2009
I enjoyed a previous Joanne Harris book, so I purchased this to read. It is an easy read with an evocative description of an isolated coastal island and the way tides and yearly changes affect the personalities of people who live there. I liked how the characters were scrunched up and intensified by their situation.

I didn't enjoy this as much as Chocolat, as there seemed to be less magic in the writing. However, the main characters were less ethereal, which worked well for the book. It was one of those books that I could have stopped at any point because it didn't drag me in until the end (which turned out to be a pshaw! moment anyway).
