Recommended for: Hopeless romantics This is one of my favourite books ever! I have to read it at least once a year. The first time I read it was the winter of 1994/95. I stayed up all night...I had to finish it! And here I am, reading it once again... The story is magical. It's a fable and fairytale and full of unrequited love and delicious, exotic food. I'm still not sure how I feel about Pedro. I understand his undying love for Tita, but he's such a jackass about everything else! The movie is equally moving and so beautiful, with the screenplay written by the author, Laura Esquivel. (Make sure you get the subtitled, not the dubbed version!)
