"Love of Chocolate" - this unusual novel by Nicholas Reardon comes with a hint of Manga Art as the pages of the book are brought to life with the illustrations of the manga artist Heby Sim. With this story, the author produces a new and unique type of book, which crosses the boundaries between the pen of the writer, and the brush of the artist, plus a lot of Chocolate. More details on this book and others in the series plus of course the characters drawn by the artist can be seen at our associated website. Abbey Jones was not what you could call an ordinary girl. The only thing she could remember when she was found washed ashore as a child was that she was an orphan, true she looked a normal girl, but she had a secret and that was uncontrollable hair. She knew that most girls complained about their hair, in fact hers looked perfect. She loved her uncontrollable soft long blond hair, it was only that she just wished it would stop stealing chocolates and threatening to bite people! This is another book from Nicholas Reardon of Reardon Publishing.
At first, I thought the book is all about action or the agent thing…. But as I turned the pages, it change to something hmmph.. unexplainable , maybe science-based…
The story, obviously is unique I haven’t heard of anything like this. It’s also well-written, page-turning actually, I can’t wait to know more what will happen with the characters. ..and by the way, the turn of events are sooo unpredictable….
This book has an air of sci-fi, manga, and action… I love all the illustrations..cool..and awesome..and I also like the fighting stance….made me imagine it..:)
There’s also a bit of sisterhood, friendships and I really hope romance…
At first thought, I think it’s not so wholesome…but then when I realized it’s more of a need, well, actually they want it too, I begin to somehow get used to it…especially when there’s 3 of them…
The hair thing is actually funny, especially when it starts stealing chocolates and dictating them…
I actually thought and until now wish that Abbey would find it in her heart that she loves_____, I guess it would be impossible, since her hair control her…
I hope there’s a sequel with Abbey and ___..hmm…just saying..:)
If you want something unique, with lots of manga, action and sci-fi(since I don’t know what it is)….Grab this book and enjoy it for yourself!
