it was ok

I was excited to read Corked largely because of the father-daughter story behind the book. It was interesting to read about this family of gourmets and wine aficionados. I think that someone more knowledgeable about wines and vineyards would have gotten much more out of the book. I personally found Philippe to be such an unsympathetic character and poor father that it diminished my enjoyment of their journey. Instead of chuckling at Phillipe's selfishness and petty whims, I found myself wanting to skim over the passages where he appeared. If you can muster sympathy for Philppe and Kathryn Borel, then in reading Corked, you will uncover a story of love, friendship and family.
