1.0 out of 5 stars Too many stories for one novel, 6 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Mangoes and Quince (Paperback)
I was given this book to read for book club. I am sure Ms Field writes wonderful cook books and I know this is her first novel, but it is rather ambitious. There are so many stories in the novel that most of them are lost in the weird Asian cult and cookery references. It tends to be overwritten and there is a lack of believability in the characters and events. I was very disappointed with the book.
