This type of romantic comedies as I see can be very boring sometimes especially if they are American. But talking into the consideration that this was an Italian spoken language film and the stories in it are very credible in its contents I really enjoyed it.

Oct 29, Ellen rated it it was ok. This is a series that has steadily gone downhill for me. I loved the first with its original take on the idea of illegal chocolate and the struggles that Anya goes through to both rise above and take advantage of her family's criminal history.
Age of Love
The second took an unnecessary detour to Mexico, introducing an equally unnecessary love interest, but I had hopes for the final installment. Unfortunately, this volume was my least favorite. The plotting moved along too swiftly through time to give space This is a series that has steadily gone downhill for me. The plotting moved along too swiftly through time to give space for the emotions of the characters to become fully realized.
No sooner is Anya opening her first shop in NYC, then she is opening shops all over the country and the world. Same with her romance with Yuji, one of the more intriguing characters in the series. He definitely deserved better, and as a reader, so did I. May 01, Angela rated it liked it Shelves: library. I liked this. I'd forgotten because I didn't reread books 1 or 2 prior to reading book 3 how formal the narrative comes across, and while it's a bit distracting to be honest , it's not a deal breaker.
I really like the way this ended - imperfect enough to make it feel 'real. Also, every time I think about this story, I think I should use my interest in Russian everything to write a book 3. Also, every time I think about this story, I think I should use my interest in Russian everything to write a book of my own. Good ending to an interesting series. Jun 10, Erica Deleon rated it really liked it. Wonderful book. I loved the character development and the resolutions. I loved how even though the ending wasn't action packed and full of drama, it seemed so appropriate for the development and conclusion of the series.
The writing in this book is engaging and personable and makes it easy to connect. Feb 04, Sabrin Abdi added it. May 25, Callioux rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I had to finish the series, for the sake of the ending. The entire trilogy was getting on my nerves, but I kept reading because I couldn't live with a pure conscience without knowing how everything ended. All in all, it was an alright ending, pretty average, somewhat satisfying, but I absolutely and utterly refuse to give In the Age of Love and Chocolate more than three stars, and that's because there's one thing that REALLY, REALLY, messed the entire book up for me: a little character named Yuj I had to finish the series, for the sake of the ending.
Yuji was introduced in the first book, and was actually one of the more bearable and interesting characters. And, plus, I haven't come across a YA crime novel with a mysterious Japanese mafia heir in it. His presence in the series grew as it went on, an Yuji's relationship with Anya develops—like when he proposed to her in Mexico during Because it is My Blood and even earlier in the novel, accidentally kissed her, which was fanservice epitomized. By the look of things, it seemed Gabrielle Zevin was setting up a bona-fide intermafia romance, and when I caught a whiff of Yuji Ono's name in this book, I was ecstatic.
And when Yuji and Anya get married for business and the not-so-subtle passage where Yuji mentions he would in fact sleep with Anya, I was frantic with the thought that Anya might actually do us a favor and move on from Win, despite the fact that Yuji's character had been poisoned and was slated to up and die at any moment.
Yuji dies, basically wasted away, and the thing that pissed me off wasn't that Yuji died, it was the way he was treated by Anya. Anya is portrayed as a formidable, touch teenager when runs a mafia, and I think that the Japan arc was supposed to highlight this in the shadow of Yuji's illness. I think it only made her seem a bit less humane. She professes that she has no platonic feelings towards Yuji whatsoever, and, to add insult to injury, didn't try, even after all he did for the Balanchine family i. In the end, he was less of a person in Anya's world and more of a plot device.
Maybe, if Yuji had been treated better, not even saved from death, the book could have been a bit better. Jul 09, Emily rated it liked it Shelves: dystopian-fiction , young-adult , , audio-books. She's tough and unpredictable. She makes decisions I would never expect from a character in a YA novel. Or hire and eventually befriend the man who put her in prison when she was 15? Delacroix were my favorites. What a surprising relationship. More interesting than her relationship with 4 stars for Anya 2 stars for kooky pacing and dialogue I love Anya Ballanchine.
More interesting than her relationship with Win.
He could be sweet, I guess, but he was so so boring and judgmental. My least favorite love interest in a long time. I cheered for Teo and Yuji before Win. I don't know if the author ever explained the premise of this book very well, that chocolate is illegal in the future and coffee too-shudder! But she still built her world around it pretty well. Anya is part of a crime family that deals in chocolate, although she puts a twist on that once she discovers a loophole with cacao. She even becomes a godmother twice in this last book of the trilogy, which I thought was a nice touch.
The plot, however, meandered-it was like a long description of what Anya's life was like once she opened the cacao clubs, covering many years and not a lot of action, peopled by many characters who annoyed me. And there's a conspicuous dearth of contractions in this book. I don't know if that's the way they're supposed to talk in future, but it made the dialogue really weird. I listened to this, and Ilyana Kadushin was an interesting narrator.
She has a very deliberate style, which worked well with Anya's narration and not as well with dialogue between characters. The dialogue was already odd-sounding, so I can't really blame the reader. The series as a whole was fine. It was an original idea and with an original heroine. I don't think it worked at every level, but overall it was a fun idea.
I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy of this book because I couldn't wait to see how Gabrielle Zevin was going to conclude Anya Balanchine's story. After having gone through so much and faced both love and loss, I wasn't sure if Anya was going to get a happy ending or not so I started reading this with a small sense of trepidation but also a huge amount of confidence that Zevin would give her trilogy the right ending. Anya is now eighteen and has become the owner of a nightclub The Dark Room I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy of this book because I couldn't wait to see how Gabrielle Zevin was going to conclude Anya Balanchine's story.
Anya is now eighteen and has become the owner of a nightclub The Dark Room with her former nemesis Charles Delacroix. Her relationship with Win is over and life is changing, finally for the better. It was great to see Anya trying to legitimise the Balanchine crime family at long last and give them something positive to focus on for the future after having been on the wrong side of the law for so long.
At the heart of this series has always been the personal character development of Anya herself. She has lost so many people that she has loved and cared about but she is incredibly tough and never gives in which are qualities that I admire about her. She has also taken her responsibilities towards her younger sister Natty very seriously and wants to ensure that she gives her a better future than she had herself. I love their sibling bond and the closeness that the sisters have always shared. There were some exciting and unexpected last minute twists in the plot which I thoroughly enjoyed.
There is also a dramatic ending to the story which caused my jaw to quite literally drop open. The Birthright trilogy features romance, friendship and familial relationships but also presents a wonderful depiction of Anya's fall and rise from a young girl to a woman in her own right. Oct 24, Angela rated it liked it Shelves: This is the true coming-of-age tale in the trilogy. Anya sets in motion the nightclub idea that she had in the end of book two. So he demands that she chooses between him and her nightclub. This volume lacks the action and conspiracy of the second and feels like an extended denouement.
The quick pace of the second volume is replaced with an emotional depth and emerging maturity in Anya. She n This is the true coming-of-age tale in the trilogy. She navigates the business world and family politics while figuring out what is worth valuing in a relationship. She never has an easy decision, but she learns from each one. In wrapping up the various storylines, a few conflicts are thrown into the mix, but overall, this book lacks urgency. Most conflicts are wrapped up quickly and mess-free before moving on to the next one.
The volume has an overly-tidy, predictable resolution, as well. Anya remains a consistent character as she ages into an adult. She proves her ability to make tough and unselfish choices based on logic and her best information. She struggles with her spirituality, which I found an interesting touch, even though it's basically a rite-of-passage for young somethings. But Anya, I have to tell you. Things that existed 80 years ago are not "ancient. This is probably one of the best YA trilogies I've ever read. Which is maybe understandable, given all the bad things that happened, but I was left with an overall feeling of sadness and loneliness, even with the hopeful ending.
Plotwise, a lot happe This is probably one of the best YA trilogies I've ever read. Plotwise, a lot happened -- maybe too much? The focus on Anya's business plans, and the fact that Natty and Scarlet and Win were no longer around, meant that we didn't see as much of the relationships that I loved so much in the first two books.
Even Theo was different -- more sarcastic, not the lovely funny boy he used to be. I guess it's difficult to take a teenage character through into adulthood, and of course I wouldn't expect Anya to be the same person at 21 as she was aged And I do think Gabrielle Zevin does character growth beautifully. But I found myself missing the girl she used to be and wishing that things had been just a little easier for her.
Maybe this is a sign that I care too much about fictional characters. While I enjoyed this series as a whole I think that the first book was the strongest, with the second and third book being less compelling.

I did enjoy this book and it was interesting to learn how Anya would turn out. There were a few surprises but no huge twists and the ending was what I was expecting. The audio version is really good and the narrator was pretty amazing at capturing all the different accents required for the various characters.

Age of Love
This is one of those audiobooks that you can't believe only has one narrator because it sounds like multiple different people. Jun 11, Jane rated it it was amazing. I honestly don't remember the last time I read a series conclusion that worked so well and was so emotionally satisfying. It also doesn't feel entirely like a YA book anymore, less because the characters are older and more because of the longer timespan covered and the elements of nostalgia.
