5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves way more than an average of 3 stars!, 17 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake (Paperback)
This book is fantastic.

It's written from the point of view of Rose, a girl who can taste people's feelings through what they've cooked. While that alone is an incredibly intriguing plot, there's a lot more to it than just that. The book spans from her childhood to her young adulthood - and not in a boring way that drags on - it's really just perfect. The writing is so honest, the characters are all interesting, and the story seems strangely realistic. It's that poignant kind of story that sticks with you. There is an unexpected, bizarre twist as somebody mentioned but it's things like that that make books great. I suppose it is a bit out there, but what is a book without a bit of strangeness?

I don't even usually write reviews on here, I just really think this book is great. It's written so wonderfully and I can't believe how under-appreciated it is on here. I stayed up late (...or early) just to devour a few more chapters of this, and that's saying a lot!
