Summary Como agua para chocolate

Como agua para chocolate Free read Ç 0 ✓ Earthy magical and utterly charming this tale of family life in turn of the century Mexico became a best selling phenomenon with its winning blend of poignant romance and bittersweet witThe number one bestseller in Mexico and America for almost two years and subseuently a bestseller around the world Antic poignant tale touched with moments of magic graphic earthiness bittersweet wit and recipes A sumptuous feast of a novel it relates the bizarre history of the all female De La Garza family Tita the youngest daughter of the house has been forbidden to marry condemned by Mexican tradition to look after her mother until she dies B. I couldn't help but fall for this short novel that encapsulates vividly yet simply the lives of these women in Mexico during the Pancho Villa Years The family unit is both necessary AND a culminating curse it's hardly fair that our heroine must not live out the life she desires but the one that is handed down to her A stupid family tradition it is true mine's a bit like Tita's clan sure though not at all dictates that the youngest daughter gets to take care of the matriarch and never marry nor fall in love Tita does of course fall in love her longing desperation hope all are ingredients for the eleven dishes she prepares and shares with the reader More than the story itself about shitty circumstances imprisoning a beating heart a stunting of a passion that soon after becomes nothing else but a heavy burden the mixture of recipe with story the book is actually revolutionary in taking a vastly different approach about the way we look at the culinary aspect our especially us Mexicans' lives Whereas I got a sour flavor disgusting my palate watching such drivel as Julie and Julia this book the movie does it little justice by the way masterfully employs a type of rare literary alchemy by mixing elements as one would mix ingredients to give rise to something as tasty as it is nourishingSpeaking of alchemy it must be mentioned that this has a similar voice and tone as that of Madonna's fave Paulo Coelho 'The Alchemist' 'Veronika Decides to Die' but seriously a WAYYY imaginative therefore enjoyable sense of storytelling
