1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing second helpings, 11 Aug. 2012
This review is from: The Baker's Apprentice (Paperback)
I'm never a big fan of sequels - they generally disappoint and something about them smacks of "writer unable to think up new and original characters and therefore recycling old ones" - this one was more disappointing than others because the original book, Bread Alone, was so hugely enjoyable. Wyn Morrison is back, but this time her broken heart has healed and she's lost a considerable amount of her charm along the way. Now she's seemingly more obsessed with sex than with her baked goodies. The recipes in Bread Alone were part of the plot, skilfully interwoven and not at all out of place - in the sequel the author has struggled to slot them in in any meaningful way and as a result they stick out like a sore thumb making little contribution to the story. That is, if there even is a story - the plot is random and haphazard - a series of events which are just occurring to the main character (and, yes, okay, life is like that, but this is a book - with a story which should be as well crafted as any artisan loaf). Hugely disappointing - I couldn't even finish it.
