I wanted to like The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake and I did in places, but the ending befuddled me. (view spoiler)

Aimee Bender|put one too many ingredients in her novel and the magical realism suffered, in my opinion. I wanted more, but when I finished THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE a peculiar melancholy washed over me.

Debbie I just saw this in the book store but it was hard cover and they wanted more than I'm willing to pay for a used book. lol I plan to keep my eyes out for a $4 paperback. Is the book good?


Anne  (Booklady) Molinarolo It is a little odd, Debbie. Not sure about it yet - so far I kind of like it ;) My sister in law liked it, so I'll probably like it as I read more of it. But it is a strange little book. I got my copy at a used bookstore for $3. Not bad for a hardcover book


Melissa I'm very interested to see your review of this book. I didn't care for it much, but it'll be nice to see your thoughts on it.

Debbie Hmm mixed reviews on this one. Well when I do find it in my store maybe I'll stand in the isle and read a few pages to make sure...or better yet use my receipt as a bookmark just incase it gets homesick and wants to go back. Lol
