Klause poetically describes the violence and sensuality of the pack lifestyle, creating a hot-blooded heroine who puts the most outrageous riot grrrls to shame. Blood and Chocolate is a masterpiece of adolescent angst wrapped in wolf's clothing, and its lovely, sensuous taste is sure to be sweet on the teenage tongue. (Ages 13 and older) --Jennifer Hubert
Maybe in the beginning I really didn't like this book at all. But as I went along, I understood it better, dug myself deep into it. Blood and Chocolate was so mysteriously freaky, that I had to put it down and read a different book when I was going to sleep. Frankly, it was pretty hard. I loved Annete Curtis Klause's main character-Vivian. She was described as beautifl and the only teenage girl in her pack. No pressure, huh?
I loved how Vivian was so unique, and that when she turned in her drawing because her art teacher told her it was a good idea, she was shocked that her drawing of wolves wasn't next to some trashy poetry-a poem of wolves instead. (Not that poetry's trashy, just that that's how Vivian would intercept it.) Imagine how shocked you would be that a human could think up something like that, when they didn't know the feeling of running through the forest like the wolves did.
This was an amzingly riveted story full of love and lust. If you like romance and action, this book is certainly for you.
