did not like it
Read in March, 2008

One day at work, I had a craving for a salad. Events conspired to keep me from going out to get one until well after an hour past my usual lunchtime. By then, I was so ravenous as to be almost beyond rational thought. I went to the salad bar across the street and loaded my big plastic bowl with every single ingredient from the bar that, individually, I enjoyed having in a salad. It was several forkfulls in that my hunger abated enough to permit me to process the input from my taste buds. That input was not good: even though I liked each flavor in and of itself, the combination created a riotous, aberrant gestalt resulting in a thoroughly unsatisfying experience I soldiered through out of sheer stubborness.

Categorical discrepancies notwithstanding, the only difference between that salad and this book is that I would have given the salad two stars for at least serving its most basic purpose of providing nutritive sustenance.

David Sarkies I was wondering where you were going with the story about the salad, though I did enjoy your story more than this book.
