Chocolate on a Stick - eBook.

... Velma and Louie are in their seventies...and in love with each other. They met at the mailboxes in a nursing home in Memphis, Tennessee. But trouble is on the horizon for our sprightly senior citizens. The nursing home is closing, and their children are bound and determined to separate them—keeping Velma in Memphis with her nervous Elvis Presley-impersonator car salesman son, Farvis, and sending Louie to South Carolina with his daughter, Jeneeva.

But Velma and Louie ain’t gonna take this kind of treatment from their nutty off-spring.

They’re "runnin’ oft." In a red Corvette.

  • I listened to the Audible audio version of this book.

    CHOCOLATE ON A STICK was such a fun, fun listen. It was laugh out loud cute and chock full of county slang and idioms. I loved it when Velma said "I swan." I can remember my grandma saying that as well as other phrases. Country folks really talk this way. The two main characters Velma and Louie are so awesome. They sort of run parallel with "Thelma and Louise' in the fact that they can only be together by running away from their busybody adult children who I might add are pretty colorful characters as well.

    (I'm just going to make this interjection) If you're reading this review and considering this audiobook, get it. This is one of my favorite all time books.

    I liked the way the chapters were alternating POV's from each character. It gave the story a complete fullness and insight into each person and why they were the way they were.

    The whole book was super fun but a few of the places where I laughed a lot more were when Louie and Velma were with the pot smokers and Louie partook and then proceeded to moon the cop that was playing lane change with them in the 'vette they were driving. Another was when they were in the casino, and in the hot air balloon. There were so many good times in this book that I hope this awesome author, CAROLE BELLACERA writes more from this vein.

    ANGIE HICKMAN- What can I say. She was superb narrating this book. She nailed each and every character and nuance. She is fantastic and took a great book over the top to complete awesomeness. She's a wonderfully skilled voice actor that I can't wait to hear more from.

  • I loved how much fun this book was and was able to just picture this couple. Louie reminds me a bit of my husband, who always wants to experiment and try new things like white water rafting, roller coasting, zip lining, parasailing, etc. Louie wants to go rafting, too, and talks Velma into it. It makes for such a fun story because of the vivid descriptions and illustrations about how their children wanted to separate them. I'm glad I ran across it. If you're looking for a fun read, this is it.

  • This book was a lot of fun to read. I couldn't put it down, except when I was laughing so hard tears were clouding my vision. I highly recommend it.

  • You've read the publishers blurb, but that can't possibly convey the sheer enjoyability of this book, it's a wonderful story, sheer entertainment, I just love it that in this ageist world of the young and beautiful, old people come out on top!
    I seldom laugh aloud when listening, but this book changed that, it's so darned funny. As a bonus, there are some lovely heartwarming and tender side stories going on. Oh, and those Southern Sayins'! I would recommend getting the Whispersync book to, simply so you can look up again some of those gems.
    On the slightly serious side, I believe this story can also teach us all a little, most importantly it shows how demeaning and humiliating it is to seize from someone their power of choice. Great stuff

    Narrator

    Think of all the superlatives you could apply to a narrator, well Angie Hickman deserves them all. I couldn't fault her in any way. This story is perfect as an audiobook and the author, Carole Bellacera chose the perfect narrator

    I won this audiobook on the Narrator Spotlight and was under no obligation at all to write this review, however, this review represents my honest opinion

  • CHOCOLATE ON A STICK was nominated for the 2005 Kentucky Best Book Award. Velma and Louie redefine the word feisty, and take your heart by storm when they turn thumbs down on their children's plans for stagnate (graceful) senior years.
    Carole Bellacera illustrates through the blunt country language of the Kentucky foothills the freedom of true independence. Her descriptions are cryptic and delightful as Velma, Louie and a red Corvette escape the clutches of well-meaning folks. Join them in a cross-county chase for a ride you will never forget. CHOCOLATE ON A STICK is scrumptious and so good for you; doctors should prescribe it instead of pills.
    Laughter halts the aging process, expands the heart, enlivens the mind and keeps you young. This Kentucky author delights us with all four in this fun to read book.

  • My title says it all. The idea is good but the writing or writer needs help. The idea is plausible...could have been funny and sweet........
