    This lovely story about Jay Jackapple Joe is one of my all time favourite books I could read it over over again.A story filled with nostalgia, a yearning for wonderful childhood memories, magic and trust Jay goes on a journey of f...

    2018 Reading Challenge fruit or vegetable in the titleI m a huge Harris fan, but somehow this is the first of her novels I ve read with a main male protagonist I don t typically gravitate to these types of books RTC but I loved this as much as any of her other books She s a beautiful storyteller

    My first novel by the author of Chocolat and I have to say I enjoyed it far than expected.The story of Jay Mackintosh, a 37 years old writer, famous because of an only novel written fifteen years ago Jay seems to have lost inspiration and faith in the magic of life, as if all these feelings had been spent in that successful novel.The novel moves forward and backwards in time, and the reader is able to know young Jay, when he meets Joe, an eccentric old man who leaves a deep impression in lonely Jay, becoming his special friend and his secret hideaway.Home brewed wine made by Joe takes unusual importance in the present time of the story, because it s only when Jay drinks it that he finds the courage to change what makes him unhappy Guided by a kind of Joe s ghost, Jay leaves London and moves to a little rural village in France where he buys an abandoned farm and where he st...

    I loved this story, or maybe I should say, I was in love with this story, I was in love with Joe and his eccentric ways I loved the gardening, the wine making, the magic I was in love with the bond of love between old man Joe and young man Jay This is a book about the young man growing into maturity, into a man who can love a woman and a child and protect what he values Growing into a man who can accept the weaknesses and mistakes of others, accept those same things in himself, and figure out how to make things better It is about an old man passing on his skills and dreams to the next generation It is about the value of the past to the creation of the future respect and love for the land and diversity of species Although the story has many fantastical elements the only thing that struck a somewhat odd note for me was Marise s past Lovely woman, but than her share of conveniently dead in her life and rather iffy taste in men, although let s hope that...

    Nothing evokes memories like scents and Joanne Harris is a master of descriptive prose that will bring memories flooding back.The senses are further brought into play with the sounds of the 70s nailed and remembered The best times of my life childhood memories were exactly depicted in this wonderful story narrated by a bottle of fleurie wine and the 6 specials which are filled with magic Lansquenet the little french village of Chocolat fame is the setting for this book too along with some characters recognized from their also The main characters are Joe an eccentric old man who brews wine, gardens, makes pouches of herbs that protect against bullies layman s alchemy he calls it and Jay a young lad who admires Joe and learns much of life from him the story follows Jay into adulthood in alternating chapters.If you want reminding of long hot summers, best friends and bike rides when we used to s...

    Blackberry Wine 1999 Five Quarters of the Orange 2001 by Joanne Harris Finished Reading August 2015 Rating 2 5 3 5 I read Harris Five Quarters of the Orange Blackberry Wine back to back, so I shall be reviewing them together They are very similar, actually a little too much Both feature lead female protagonists that have strong, proud, independent, walled away personalities, unwilling to accept, let alone ask, others for any sort of assistance In both, they are not the lead character, but as the focus of the protagonist, they are as, if not , important In Five Quarters of the Orange, this bold female character is Mirabelle Dartigen, the mother of present day narrator Framboise Simon In Blackberry Wine, Marise d Api is the strong female lead, writer Jay Mackintosh s unfriendly, closed off, and mysterious neighbor Like in all Harris novels the singular touch that ensures my return interest in her novels both novels contain a food that serves as a saving elixir and the irreplaceable addition ...

    The first time I tried to read Blackberry Wine apparently wasn t the right time to try to read this book This time, though, I read it practically all in one go with, yeah, a glass of wine Joanne Harris prose is always easy to read, really clear, and I can believe in the characters she creates at least enough to carry on to the very last page Joe, in particular, rang true with me a miner s son, a gardener, a Yorkshire lad Jay, perhaps not as much, particularly not at the beginning, but yes, enough that I cared what happened to him.I love the everyday magic that Joanne Harris characters work Just normal enough that you can believe it s true for a while Just close enough to coincidence or wishful thinking that if you can t step over into fantasy, you don t have to.I don t think I m likely to reread any of Joanne Harris books I guess to me they re a bit like chocolate, or a bottle of wine You can only have the experience once But I do greatly enjoy them,...

    This is a beautiful book, written by the author who later wrote Chocolat Blackberry Wine takes place in both England and the same small French town that is the setting for Chocolat.Blackberry Wine tells the story of Jay, who as a boy, meets an eccentric man named Joe, who opens Jay s world to gardening and magic and homemade wine As an adult and established author, Jay escapes his stifling life in England by buying a small cottage in Lansquenet, France, where he not only becomes a gardener, but writes another book, solves a mystery when he falls in love with a local woman scorned by most of the town, babysits this woman s daughter and goat, and is visited by the ghost of the late ...

    I prefer tea.I have mixed feelings about Blackberry Wine, unfortunately negative than positive For the first ten chapters I despised this book I didn t care about the characters, couldn t care about the plot and wanted nothing than to just get through the thing so I could move on to another story Even though the chapters are short, fifty seven pages is than I want to wait for a story to get interesting.Blackberry Wine describes the life of Jay, a one hit wonder in the literary arena who fell victim to the freshman curse and now lives as a writer of trashy sci fi novels and part time fantasy conference attendee One day he impulsively buys a farmhouse in France that brings back childhood memories and moves in, hoping to find what he thinks he s lost Via astral projection, his friend mentor Joe, visits the farmhouse to continue giving the advice he started in Jay s youth Jay the adult reverts back to the child he was time and again in his bitterness at being abandoned by the old man s sudden parting, continuing the legacy Blackberry Wine is written as a piece of commercial fiction, but has definite elements of fantasy that feel out of place This inconsistent tone added to my discomfort.One o...
