Reviews

Beautifully written, enchanting yet oh-so real--Independent
So wise, so atmospheric, so beautifully written--Marian Keyes
Sheer pleasure from start to finish...a delight--James Runcie
It will intrigue and charm readers every bit as much as Chocolat--Monica Ali
Evocative...sure to delight fans of Chocolat--Observer
Deliciously compelling--Prima
Compelling, captivating, incredibly moving...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
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
