what I anticipated from the blurb I have read online I was expecting it to be of a theatre based story but I loved it either wayI loved all the twists and turns in the story and the fact I could never be sure what to think about each character other than Juliette our main narrator because everything that seemed to be true was uncovered to be false especially behaviours of certain peopleWhat the novel said about sin behaviours of people who are not void of sins what we choose to believe in about motherhood and motherly instincts jealousy etc was so deeply rooted in real psychology thus it hit hard for me because of its genuinity To be honest I see certain behavioural patterns portrayed in the book present in today s era THAN EVER Getting petty revenge on people who ridicule us Believing in

resonating with the big abuse scandal of Hollywood you would have thought we have reached a point where actresses are not treated as prostitutes to prominent menBut I also liked how religious communities in good times were shown I do think this was drawn from reality too how they sometimes act as refuge for those whose lives seem irrepairableI liked how the villain was villanous and someone who love to hate with this enigmatic evilness in him but at the same time he was not an empty shell and he had the motivation and a background that can explain his behaviour partly and also he was not without emotions I also loved how our main heroine was not perfectly good but likeable I don t have children but I think I can understand her decisions in th light of her wanting to save her daughter for which goal she is ready to commit sins And I also think I understood the dynamics of her relatinship with LeMerle I can imagine that there is that sort of partly emotional partly sexual passionattraction that is really hard to break even though you know the other person is only going to cause you miseryPlus yes the theatre parts were a huge plus for me as someone whose biggest

With her internationally bestselling novels Chocolat Blackberry Wine Five uarters of the Orange and Coastliners Joanne Harris has woven intoxicating spells that celebrate the sensuous while exposing the passion secrets and folly beneath the surface of rustic village life In Holy Fools her most ambitious and accomplished novel to date she transports us back to a time of intrigue and turmoil of deception and masueradeIn the year 1605 a young widow pregnant and alone seeks sanctuary at the small Abbey of Sainte Marie de la mer on the island of Noirs Moustiers off the Brittany coast Afte Holy Fools 0 552 77001 9What happened here I loved Chocolat and I adored Five uarters of the Orange Holy Fools however seems like it came from a completely different author The book is acceptable but not up to Harris standards To start the Mother Daughter theme that Harris employs so well is deeply underdeveloped here as of a plot device than anything else There was a lot of potential here a nun with a beloved daughter raising her to be safe from the outside world and yet perhaps a little too sheltered Unfortunately the daughter seems a little underdeveloped neither rebellious and wanting to know the curiosities of the outside world nor a little too content in her cocoon Instead the daughter seems only to exist to serve as a kidnaphostage victim so that our heroine cannot effectively flee or intervene when the madness begins I could accept the daughter as hostage plot device were the main character not so otherwise one dimensional The evil mustache twirling villain has abused her in numerous ways and yet she seems intently less interested in bearing a grudge and intent on mooning her way back into his bed Once there however it never seems to occur to our heroine to tie him up and persuade him to tell her the secret location of her kidnapped daughter instead she just focuses on having a nice tumble and heading off cheerily the next morning The lackluster narrative conflicts deeply with the established character of the narrator she s been shown to have great survival skills and would manage easily on her own with the child outside the nunnery so why does it not even occur to her to take a runner Harris crisp insight into females isn t just lost on our heroine All the women in this novel are almost irredeemable idiots The nuns descend almost instantly into madness under the manipulation of the villain This isn t presented as religious hysteria the women seem either intensely stupid or completely eager to join the villain for their own selfish reasons The subtlety necessary for religious hysteria seems completely absent here which is astonishing because I believe that if anyone could have pulled it off Harris could have Again what happened here This isn t a bad novel It s got enough cliches to shake a stick at and it s incredibly frustrating at bits but so are many decent novels But this is a bad novel for Harris You may enjoy this if you check it out at a library but don t expect Harris uality In the end I didn t hate it but I was deeply disappointed Ana Mardoll Tall man riding. rustic village life In Holy Fools her most ambitious and accomplished

    A gorgeous compelling story set in mediaeval France Holy Fools has all the ingredients I love in Joanne Harris’s books There’s a strong complex heroine with pagan inclinations a few villains a slightly gothic setting and a lot of less than comfortable reflections on the human condition Harris has a very warts and all a

    Although I really enjoy reading Harris’s works I’m beginning to wonder if she has something against the Catholic church In the majority of the books I’ve read written by her someone or something from the Catholic church ends up being the baddie and the Church itself is inevitably portrayed as corrupted and judgmental I’m not Catholic but I’d hope that someone who is as lovely an author as she is could branch out a littl

  8. says:

    The plot of this novel is fairly original and the beginning seemed promising Where it failed was on the actual execution of the plot and motivation of characters The whole plot just seems unlikely Things happen without explanation and it is hard to believe how these people got from what they used to be to what they are Another problem is that this book did not give me the feel of the time period

  10. says:

    One of the reasons I like to read historical fiction set in far away places is I learn about history and far away places This book doesn't give that satisfaction because instead of doing historical and locational research the author made stuff up She sets much of the action in a nunnery on an island near the southern town Saintes Maries de la Mer I've actually been to this town and there's no island and no nunnery there I think she was insp
