"Why is it taking me so long to get through this book?
The story is interesting... But the writing is not so good."
||30.0%||"Getting a little more interesting. I think the problem with the earlier part of the book is that it lacked conflict and was written too matter-of-fact-like instead of story-like. However, the conflict in this part of the book can not be avoided."|

||51.0%||"Interesting insights into the food industry. 1. I agree that ethnic food should not be looked down upon but actually enriches the quality of the food. 2. French is not the end-all of cuisine. 3. I didn't know the atmosphere in the kitchen could be so intense!"|
