I loved the book. For me it brought back so many wonderful memories. I grew up at Rocky point and had my share of clamcakes and chowder. Several of the places in this book I have been to but nothing will top Rocky Point. I worked there many years ago with David and I still miss the shore dinner hall.

Quirky and fun. Not sure why this fascinated me so much, but I found this book to be funny, informative and made me hungry. One of those unsung little gems of literature.

I dared to read this in landlocked Colorado, 2000 miles from the nearest clam cake, but it made me dash out to get the next best thing, a lobster roll. A very fun, quick and informative read.

What a fun little book to get me in the mood for summer. Perfect beach reading, especially if you're in Rhode Island. I now know what a clamcake is, and will be on the lookout for them if I ever get to Rhode Island!

I had never read a memoir before this, so it was interesting to read it. I don't remember what I was expecting, but this was fun! Short and a very enjoyable read.

This was really disappointing, and it sounded like so much fun at first. It was really very randomly organized and didn’t talk much about clam cakes. I did learn about the origin of May breakfast in RI. It’s a good idea though. Maybe I should try it and write about the adventure it could be.
