I don't regret reading this book, it was entertaining, but I don't know that I would recommend it. On the plus side, the author is a huge Buffy fan, so I was able to relate to her on that level. But overall, I had a hard time with the tone of the book--it felt like she was trying too hard or something. She came off sounding like a less sophisticated, less witty, less interesting Nora Ephron.

Well, it's been a long time since I've read water for chocolate, but so far it doesn't seem anything like it. As of right now it's only gonna get a 3 star rating from me...the narrator's tone is grating on my nerves. Not sure why.
