it was ok
Read in August, 2007

Did not love like I had hoped I would. I am a HUGE Julia Child fan and I love the whole idea of cooking every recipe from Julia's MTAOFC in a year and blogging about it. However, I wish I was aware of the blog when she was actually in the midst of the year long project, rather than reading her synopsis years later in book form.
I have to say however, that Julie is frickin' funny. I laughed out loud several times and appreciated her wicked honesty, but the book just did not work as a whole.
Did anyone else feel this way?
Also, I have to give props to the cover of the hardback version--AWESOME! The paperback however, looked like a crappy chick-lit book :-(
