My Bestseller Novels

Firstly, let me make things clear here that some of the novels I am about to review in this hub may not be an official bestseller, but they worth being a bestseller in my own opinion. In carrying out this legendary novels’ review, I will adhere to a rule. And what could that rule be? I am not going to talk about any novel I haven’t read from the start to finish, that is the rule.

Once again, let me inform you that this article was not meant to be published in the first place, because it was originally written for my person use and fun, and out of an involuntary passion for the numerous uncountable novels I had read since childhood, but something told me to publish it so that others can as well enjoy some of these heartwarming novels of the past decades. Remember, whenever I’m not writing, I am obviously reading, and I would love to encourage every aspiring novelist to do same. Haven made things clear; I would like to invite you to accompany me as I unveil some of the bestseller novels of the last three decades, starting with?

Like Water for Chocolate-

‘Like Water for Chocolate’ was a national bestseller, and was first published in hardcover by Doubleday, a division of Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc., in 1992, and written by Laura Esquivel. You wouldn’t believe that this exuberant, heartwarming, culture-driven romance thriller was Laura Esquivel’s first novel. ‘Like Water for Chocolate’ is a very simple novel drawn from love, sex, war, parental influence, and of course the power of cooking delicious Mexican meals.

Tita and Pedro fell in love as teenagers, but Mama Elena wouldn’t allow this heavenly made love to happen, why? Ask Laura Esquivel, who unveiled the Mexican history as it belonged to women even before the civil war. Tita’s cooking ingenuity is something to worry about in this story, and the way mothers make preference for some of their offspring is another issue of pang. Pedro is lured into marrying Rosaura, Tita’s elder sister, and Getrudis her second sister bemoaned this and eloped with Juan Alejandrez, an unknown military captain. Rosaura and Pedro gives birth to a child, Tita transfers her love for Pedro to the little baby, and when Rosaura runs out of breast milk, Tita feeds little Pedro with her own breast milk, even though she wasn’t a nursing mother.

Mama Elena knew it was romantically unsafe for Pedro, Tita and Rosaura to live under the same roof, so she moved Pedro and Rosaura away from the family house, hence, the baby and Pedro were taken away from Tita. Will Tita’s life ever remain the same? This I believe can be found in ‘Like water for chocolate’.

Just as it was said in the beginning that their love was meant to be, Pedro and Tita came together again in an aura of pain, romance, passion, desire, urge, and thirst to explore their long sexual deprivation, and Pedro was dead.
