I had been wanting to read this book for quite some time now but it never seemed to end up in my hands. Then I saw the movie and I was reminded that one always ought to read a book before they see a movie and I finally went to the library and got the book.
If your like me and you love food… then your human and will enjoy this book. Though I am neither a chef or French I still enjoyed this novel. If you are looking for a novel about the struggles of life I can’t say this is the best book for you but it surly does take a snapshot of everyday life colliding with big dreams.If you find that you are interested in being a chef then this definitely is a must read for you. Inspiring and riveting it does keep you wondering what will happen next. Though a fair warning about it and its movie version… They differ immensely in story line and though they were both amusing and enjoyable stories don’t let one taint your opinion of the other. Mr. Morais took emotions of the terror or leaving one’s homeland, and the grief of losing a loved one and formed it into dishes of steamy deliciousness. It leaves you hungry for more but yet full of thought and beautiful visuals. I would give this book an 8 and a half on a scale of one to ten.
And please see the movie after reading the book .
