it was amazing
Read in April, 2010

This book was FABULOUSLY funny! What a quirky sense of humor Julie has! I watched the movie first, not even realizing it was based on a book until later. If you've seen the movie too but not read the book yet, you should still read it. It is WAY more about Julie and her personal challenge in cooking her way through Julia's book while blogging about it, and while keeping her job, her husband, and her sanity in the process. There is not much about Julie Child in the book at all, for which I am glad. I love Julia Child too and the movie send-up of her character was divine, but I am thankful the book did not have all that. I enjoyed it so much more I think. You will laugh out loud when you get to the chapter where she must learn to kill a lobster. Hysterical!!

Jennie I had no idea it was a book first either . Adding it to my list.

Karla Caveat - she curses a lot.
