I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

Hungry is a decidedly informative and thought-provoking book. The book is well-written and expertly composed. This book explores foodie culture and our physical, spiritual, and emotional hunger. These are salient issues I was eager to learn more about. I personally would have appreciated a more engaging and conversational style. Having said that, the book delivers on its promise to fully explore what it is we currently hunger for and what it is we are getting. ...more

The formatting of this book made it quite difficult to follow. However, it was an interesting read, full of facts and figures. Its mainly based on USA figures and habits, but dont let that put you off.

Thank you NetGalley for my complimentary copy in return for my honest review.

I don't know how research she did for this book or it was all by experiences as foodie, but it was detailed.

There were some early pages about certain ages spending more money on expensive than

Avocado toast. Artisan beer. Foodstagram.

What drives our obsession of food? Is it mere hunger? Are are we looking for something more intricate?

In an enjoyable and intriguing read, Eve Turow-Paul has assembled facts on global food trends, blended them with sociological facts, and attempted to provide us with answers to questions around how we as people manage the concept of food: what makes us tick, and why. Hungry is an attempt to answering basic questions about our behavior around food, and

So it took me a bit to get into this book. I did by the third chapter but it was a slow read. I didnt agree with everything the author put out there but that is always the case. It was nice to read someone elses take on the world we are all experiencing. ...more
