I picked this book for a school project. When I started to read it, it became more then just the project. The book became an addiction. I couldn't stop reading it. "Swift as Desire" was just the right mix of comedy, romance, and loneliness. Laura Esquivel makes it so you can feel what the character is feeling. This book is good when you think that you hit rock bottom and think that nothing can make it better or just when you want to read something good.

I picked this book up in the La Guardia airport bookshop, in need of a book to read on my long flight back to my hometown. It looked interesting enough from the back cover and definitely lived up to my first impression. I couldn't put it down. Poignant, creative, funny, sexy, and charming, "Swift as Desire" captivates you in the first few pages of the book. Laura Esquivel uses her knack for bittersweet romance and true love to inspire everyone who reads it. It's a book you won't want to put down.

Did not enjoy this book as much as Like Water for Chocolate, and at times it wasn't very interesting. The most touching part was the last chapter, which will bring tears to the eyes of some who read it.
