I read this book at a time when culinary history was taking up a lot of my reading time, and it was a perfect pairing. Very enjoyable read.

Chris

This is in my ever growing TBR pile, I must push it further to the top.

Mystica Varathapalan

Now to get to this book!

Erika

I'm ashamed--I bought it on your recommendation and some newspaper reviews, began to read it and put it down after a few pages. Now I have to go and find it (easy, luckily) and I will start it this afternoon once more.

Sarie

And it's only £1.09 on Amazon kindle at the moment!

Cornflower

Bargain!

Cornflower

Funnily enough, I had to put it down just a short way in and then didn't get back to it for months, but when I did pick it up again I quickly became happily immersed in it. I hope you will enjoy it, Erika.

Cornflower

It's too good to overlook.

Cornflower

Glad you thought so, Fay.

Marybel

Reading is so personal. I read this following your praise but wondered what was wrong that it did not get the buzz you felt. My book of last year was Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal. It bounded off the pages at me and it resonates still. In the last week I have read The Reluctant Fundamentalist which was short and powerful.

Cornflower

You are right about reading being personal, Marybel! I suppose J.S's Feast is very much 'my' type of book.
