4.0 out of 5 stars Completely Edible., 30 Nov. 2013
This review is from: The Savages (Paperback)
In a bid to keep this review honest, The Savages was a book that I started reading and then when I was about half-way through the book, put it down and didn't pick it up again for a few months. Now I know that this is normally a sign of an uninteresting book but that actually isn't the case with this book. The problem I had with this book is that it was all about food and at the time of reading I was struggling with a fear of gluten intolerance and thus having to read about how wonderful food can be when I was in the midst of losing my love of food was too hard. However, as soon as I felt comfortable about food once more, I picked the book back up and was incredibly glad that I did as I found it to be a book that was funny, interesting and enjoyable.

All in all this was a book that I did enjoy. While I had to take some time due to its large interest in food content, by the time I finished it, I was just incredibly happy that I went back and gave this book a chance and didn't just give up on it. I found this book to be full of interesting messages and I really liked how close the family was in this book and how it just really brought out some interesting messages and themes. I would also mention that this is the kind of book that I think would make a really interesting and funny family comedy film and could see so many people just really enjoying it. While this is a Young Adult title, I can definitely see many adults finding themselves fully invested in this book, unable to put it down. Thus, I finish this review by saying that you should stop reading this now and go and give The Savages a read!
