I read this book on glowing recommendation. To each his own.
This book takes the reader on a journey through the life of the main character, Eva, from birth to a young woman in her twenties. Each chapter introduces a new character and how they fit into Eva’s life, usually along with a recipe that was fitting to the dialog. I found each chapter fairly interesting, but I felt the cohesion from one chapter to the next was lacking. I am a bit of a foodie, so I could relate to the overarching theme and loved the arrogance of the food culture that surrounded the characters. (I think the author does do a good job on bringing to light how outlandish food culture can get.) The ending was abrupt and left me feeling a little cheated. Overall, the book was okay and a fairly quick read. Plus you get some free recipes! So not all is lost.
