"Like Water For Chocolate"; a book that was later made into a movie.
Like Water For Chocolate is about a girl Tita who is the youngest of
three children, with an unfair mother. Tita, the rebellious of the
three, does not want to follow the family tradition which is -- the
youngest girl in the family may not marry, but instead, take care of
their mother until she dies. Unfortunately, Tita found love with a man
who loved Tita as much as she loved him but married her oldest sister,
and before long she found another man to marry who took care of her at
the worst time in her life. How does Tita solve the conflict?
After watching the movie, I thought that the movie could not quite grasp the person watching the same way the book did with the readers. Each chapter in the book was separated by a recipe which would give the reader a bit of a hint as to what was going to happen next, but since it's a movie, it was very difficult to separate scenes with recipes. The movie was also like a 1:30 hour soap opera. If you like bad acting and drama, this is the movie for you; if you want a quick, easy read and you want to use your imagination to the fullest, I would suggest the book.
