Hard to Follow

This book is very hard to follow along. You are reading along and suddenly realize that you are reading about a recipe!

Julie not Julia

This book is not about Julia; it is about Julie putting her boundless energy into whipping up Julia's perfections. The book is better than a B12 shot in getting one to re-think ones after work/personal time in a non-criminal activity. Do not read this if you want to remain a couch potato.

Julie & Julia

This is a delightful insight into a young woman making sense out of her life through the glorious medium of Julia Child.
A thoroughly good read. I'm buying a second copy as a gift to a dear friend.

Don't bother if you think this is French food

This is not a light-hearted story about a young woman learning to appreciate the incomparable Julia Child and fine French cuisine. I was totally unprepared for the offensive, profane musings of a grim, unhappy child imprisoned in a woman's life. . . boring, to say the least; pathetic, to be kind. This is one that will go in the recycle bin quite unfinished and unlamented, except for the waste of money.
