Sarah I did my final project on this last semester. I'll be interested in what you think.

Sera Cool! I intend to start it tonight, so I'll definitely let you know.

Sarah Don't make the Christmas rolls. They're disgusting.

Sera Sarah, you are hilarious. It's the sardines, right?

I just finished the book. I really enjoyed it. I liked the approach taken with the intermingling of recipes and food analogies with the story of the novel itself. I also liked the characters. I'm still digesting the book, and I'm hoping to have some more thoughts later today.

Sarah No, we made them without sardines. But do you KNOW what chorizo is made of? Lips, lymph nodes, and salivary glands. UGH!!

I'm glad you liked the book, though. One thing I found out in my research for my project was that magical realism and the more out-there aspects of mysticism are more commonly accepted in Latin America. Their very capitol was founded on myth and legend (the myths of the Aztec's founding of Tenochtitlan, for example).

Try Soyrizo! Yum.

Sarah Oops, I just read that you had food poisoning, Sera! I guess I shouldn't have talked about the chorizo!

Sera LOL! No worries.

I'm glad that you liked my review :)
