Recommended for: English teachers, "Witty and Smart people!" LOL!
Read from December 22, 2009 to January 09, 2010 — I own a copy

I love this book! I love the narration, the perspectives, the humor, the wit... the VOCABULARY! Warning: the novel is not for everyone; you have to have an appreciation of literature, philosophy, art, etc. I could easily see this piece becoming a French indie flick like Amelie. It's a smart, relaxing, and an uplifting read without all of the chic-litish Deepak Chopra foolishness. I'm going to read it's prequel next!

Tim Lozier Yes, I loved it, too! In fact, I'm not sure why I only gave it 4 stars!


Chary Hi Fr. Timmy! Happy New Year! I think that this book will be one I'll pick up again in the future! I'll let you know how Gourmet Rhapsody goes.
