Swifter than Desire

April 30, 2011

Swift as Desire‘ read actually swifter than desire for the power of words in it. “Desires and words go hand in hand … they are moved by the same intention to join together, to communicate, to establish bridges between people, whether they are spoken or written.” (Laura Esquivel). Magically enchanting reading that reads without leaving it for a second. Just as a desire.

The magic writing of Laura Esquivel reads Like Water for Chocolate. The story is interwoven with delicious Mexican recipes – one almost tastes the delicacies throughout the book. Some say that ‘Love path to men’s heart passes through stomach’. Wonder if it is absolutely or relatively true.
