I thought this was very well written and great characterizations. In many ways, this is kind of like a magic-realism take on the V. This early encounter with food soon becomes a way of life, and Tita grows up to be a master chef. but he was a great teacher, narrow perspective aside, and i learned so much in that class, even though i had to read heart of darkness, which - yes - a great book for structure and themes and resonance, but such a snooze.
I didn't like the ending. This completely screws over Como agua para chocolate story and makes a mockery of all the emotion in the film, especially when the director essentially forces this Romeo and Juliet-esq love onto the characters.
Our main character is Tita, the youngest daughter in her family. Will she try to take the weak Perdo from her ungrateful sister or will she marry the decent doctor who has fallen for her?
Ughh this book, in the beginning I thought it was ok, the middle was great because Tita was happy again and John was such a nice caring person, but the ending Oh my that ending. The fajitas come with all the accompaniments and can be shared with 3 people really. this is not a spoiler, because i'm not giving names, and you probably already read this in your progressively anti-canon high school classes.
You won't enjoy it if you don't love food, have an imagination and understand that daytime soaps are not art.
Not long after, Mama Elena is found dead from an overdose of a strong emetic she consumed for fear of poisoning.
At one point Pedro completely ignores all concepts of consent and just assumes that Tita wants to have sex with him, even though she has denied him repeatedly because he is married to her sister and she is promised to someone else.
