3.0 out of 5 stars Best if you are a bit of a foodie, 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Epicurean Spy: A Novella (Kindle Edition)
Quite short but just as well as the book would have started getting tedious if it had gone on much longer. This is mainly because nearly half the book is about the dishes, and accompanying wines, which the 'hero' eats, and drinks during his new posting, mainly in 'dead-end' San Francisco. Interesting if you like food, as I do, but would be very boring if you don't. However, much as I like food, the lists were getting a bit tiring by the end. Also, the 'hero' is a somewhat unsympathetic character, very self important and unsavoury and if I had been his boss I would have tried to 'terminate' him a lot earlier. Still, for a short read, quite pleasant.
