Blood and Chocolate Summary & Study Guide
But what is normal for a wer Vivian Gandillon relishes the change, the sweet, fierce ache that carries her from girl to wolf. But what is normal for a werewolf? Then Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy. Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would. Moving between two worlds, she does not seem to belong in either.
What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate?

I watched the movie based on this book last night, and when I saw in the credits that it was based on a book Chkcolate had cuttis look for it. But the names and werewolf thing seems to be the only thing the same. Is the movie that much different from the book? I’m going to read the book anyhow, but until I’m able to buy it I was just curious to know. Noor Eelman The book couldn’t be further off from the movie. I personally hated the movie but that is because i am so loyal to the book.
Is that for girls. It’s a book for everyone.
If you want to understand a complex girl and how she might possibly think, this book is amazing less. See all 6 questions about Blood and Chocolate…. Lists with This Book.

I read it on a high recommendation from a friend and it bored me to tears.
But I persevered, hoping it would get better. Our protagonist, Vivian, looks kinda like Megan Fox, only blonde. Vivian thinks of men like they’re meat. Here are a few of her thoughts that we’re privy to. A female on the loose was a dangerous creature; she could challenge another bitch for a male she klausf.
Some of those male eyes strayed to Vivian, too Just a note of warning: Some of those male eyes strayed to Vivian, too, and she preened at the thought of being cirtis threat.
His eyes were amused and dreamy, as if observing life from the outside and finding it vaguely funny. He seemed languid, not intense like the Five — those jangly, nervy, twitching, squirming, fighting, snapping, sharp-edged creatures who demanded so much from her. She noticed his tall dancers frame and his long-fingered hands, and the thought crossed her mind that she would enjoy him touching her. He was a burly blond with a good-natured face and eyes that glazed over slightly at her approach.
Vivian couldn’t resist, she winked, and his cheeks turned pink. It was so easy. The other kid, wearing some kind of funny lopsided haircut, kept on yakking away, but the girl looked over and wrinkled her nose. She was small, with close-cropped dark hair — the sort of girl that wore black stockings even on days like these. I’ll put a few more runs in those tights, honey, if you look at me like that again, Vivian promised silently.
We’re not dealing with a girl of astounding intelligence here. In this universe, werewolves only have two goals — to kill things and to sleep with things. Notice I said things in both categories.
I don’t think these werewolves are very particular. Our love interest is Aiden, a rebellious, Satan worshiping, faux emo. Yes, you read that right. Our other love interest is Gabriel, a twenty-four year old weirdo. He reminds me of Edward, only creepier.
You think Edward was a creeper? Check out what Gabe does to sixteen-year-old Vivian. She pulled back, but cbocolate caught her hair in his fist and pressed her close. She pushed on his chest and struggled in his arms, but he wouldn’t let go. Koause him, she thought, tears forming.
I don’t want fierce, I want gentle. This doesn’t seem very romantic to me. This guy makes Jacob, Sam, and Edward look like cushy Teletubbies.

Seriously, if any of them were ever in jail with Gabe I’d advise them to not drop the soap. You think I’m kidding? This guy couldn’t control himself when he was with his girlfriend in bed and he phased.
Then, when she was scared, he smacked her upside the head. Of course he was sorry right? But being sorry doesn’t exactly bring her back from the dead. Taking the words right out of Vivian’s head here. He [Gabe] was much bigger than her and didn’t mind hitting females. If all werewolves are like this, and Gabe is pretty mild, Emily got away easy.
Sam could have done much worse. Gabe is a creep, yet somehow this book gets praised as being everything Twilight isn’t. I’d kill myself before recommending this book over Twilight. Edward might be a stalker, but at least he isn’t kause murderer. And let’s remember, vampires need to kill humans to survive. These werewolves do it for fun. But I’ll leave Gabe alone for a while. After all, there’s much, much more to hate about this book.
I’m not much of a feminist myself — I really just believe in equal rights for everyone — but some of the stuff blod this book really disgusts me. For instance, “Why aren’t females allowed to compete in the Ordeal? She sat at the kitchen table. Females are in a different weight category. Their muscles don’t develop to the same degree.
Why risk injury or death with no chance to win? Rudy rolled his eyes, but poured another cup. It’s only a way of matching fairly and protecting our own.
