Read in March, 2010

I think that I was expecting more Julia Child "history" to be intertwined in with Julie Powell's story. I probably shouldn't have watched the movie first-- I usually try not to-- but there was a lot more story weaving in the movie.

However, I really enjoyed being inside Julie's mind. I feel like we would have a lot in common if forced to sit next to one another for any period of time. And she cusses. So, bonus there.

I guess the reason that I didn't rate it higher was that sometimes I got confused on what she was talking about. There were a lot of tangets that she takes off on, but to her credit they do loop back around and "tie it all together". It read at times, almost like a stream of consciousness and I would get lost. That is probably just me though. I tend to get lost a lot.
