“A tall-tale, fairy-tale, soap-opera romance, Mexican cookbook and home-remedy handbook all rolled into one, Like Water For Chocolate is one tasty entree from first-time novelist Laura Esquivel.”— San Francisco Chronicle

This book is filled with strange deaths of pivotal characters at any random time. The story is very unpractical and strange as characters change, develop, and die unpredictably throughout the book creating different solutions for every problem that the protagonist faces. Although this book is unusual, it still shows many good qualities. These qualities include being good at generate cliff hangers for the reader because every time there is a new problem you have to continue to read to see the result. It also includes a mixture of a soap opera, romance, tragedy, and cookbook all put into to one. The cookbook blends well with the plot as each food that Tita is making leads into the topic of a certain chapter. The best part about this cookbook is that you are able to make hispanic foods from the explanations just by reading the book.
Even though the skeleton of the book is well developed, I suggest it not be ready because of its unrealisticness of the actual story. The story tends to contain peculiar outcomes that come very sudden and create no anticipation which is what story vitaly needs for the reader to want to keep reading.
