Views Read Edit View history. Is Vivian human or beast? This book would be an annoying enough if it were written for adults, but being that it’s meant for teenagers, I find the whole thing pretty outrageous. This guy makes Jacob, Sam, and Edward look like cushy Teletubbies.

Not that it would’ve mattered all that much. This contains pretty outrageous stuff. Aug 20, Cory rated it did not like it. Aiden is kind and a little too gentle, but exactly what Vivian thinks she wants.

U redu, da sad ne pretjeram, ima tu trenutaka borbe, ljubavi, zapleta, nije dosadno. But Vivian still grieves for her dead father; her pack remains leaderless and in disarray, and she feels lost in the suburbs of Maryland.

Blood and Chocolate Summary & Study Guide

Klause wrote a poem about her mother ironing and decided from then on to save all her poems in a notebook. Our love interest is Aiden, a rebellious, Satan worshiping, faux emo. In Klause’s novel, the loups-garoux are a separate species from humans, referring to themselves as Homo lupus. In a room full of candles and him in bed he probably thought she wanted sex, to be honest I doubt at his age I would have thought different she wants to reveal her secret to him and basically does it by shifting right in front of her and is then shocked and hurt when he is afraid and throws something at her.


He does it by suddenly hitting Astrid while she stands in line with the others and thereby drawing blood meaning she is disqualified. Blood and Chocolate is a hate crime of a book. He finally tells her his story – that he had once loved a human woman and, like Vivian, had been convinced that she would accept and love him regardless of what he was.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Vivian goes to meet Aiden and try to get him out of danger, while Gabriel, Willem, and Ulf go to gather the pack so they can be there when Judgment is passed on Astrid. He admits that when he had been making love to the human woman he had to suppress the urge to shift, and says that dating humans isn’t merely inadvisable–it is impossible and dangerous.

This doesn’t seem very romantic to me.

Blood and Chocolate : Annette Curtis Klause :

Annette Curtis Klause broke new ground in young adult literature with The Silver Kiss, a book that is at once “sexy, scaring, and moving,” according to Roger Sutton writing in the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books.

I’ve said that before, but never has it been more true. Vivian is now permanently chocopate between human and wolf form.


In fact, she reacts in a downright scary manner. When she decides to pursue a boy at school, things start to fall cyocolate in her world. The only people with redeeming qualities were Aiden’s human friends, and the shy, bespectacled werewolf Willem.

There is the stuff I curtis-kkause above and the fact that he acts totally patronizing, sexist and idiotic, but here it is portrayed as sexy, I guess.

Guess what we learn? I put Anne Frank aside and start reading this two days ago, being a fast reader I finished it but now I’m creeped up! Vivian and Gabriel share a kiss, and Vivian is finally able to transform again. Why would she stay with someone that clearly couldn’t handle her?

Vivian is abnette selfish, arrogant, dramatic, and stupid. Noor Eelman The book couldn’t be further off from the movie. Perhaps I just skip the blood and find myself a piece of chocolate in the kitchen instead? It’s a male’s world, isn’t it? Vivian, so sexual and so sure of herself, didn’t understand love any more than your average teenager.

She calls him a cheat and everyone laughs it off and the reader is supposed to join in.

I was liking it until then. I thought I had missed something. View all 43 comments.
