missing the point?,
This review is from: The Monday Night Cooking School (Paperback)
I do have to agree with previous reviews on some issues.
Yes, the (British edition) title and the chick-lit cover don't do it any favours. I took it off a library shelf and those, plus the blurb on the back cover, nearly made me put it back, but then I read a paragraph or two at random.
The characters aren't meant to be deep, they just carry the story along a bit - forget them - concentrate on the words.
There are some lovely little phrases that stopped me in my tracks: "Sometimes our greatest gifts grow from what we are not given"
The food descriptions are just amazing and made me want to shout "yes, yes that's IT"
This is a book for cooks and lovers of good food.
I wanted to keep this but it has to go back to the library so I've just ordered a copy from Amazon - the American edition with the more appropriate title and cover.
