I love the idea of this book, but the reality just didn't do it for me. I expected the book to be more about the search for the perfect loaf of bread, but the author had basically discovered the bread she wanted to profile from the beginning, so the book was more about the technical aspects of the bread and its ingredients. I think that this could have been very interesting, but it just wasn't. I never wanted to read the book even though the writing was good, and when I realized that it felt more like a burden I needed to push through, I decided to abandon it (take that, OCD!). Maybe I'll return to this next year when my sister and I begin our year of bread.
