Críticas

This book is indeed witty. If not for the wonderful writing and use of language, I would have rated it lower, for in fact, I didn't enjoy it very much. I think the problem may have been the humor which perhaps was aimed at a British audience and the recipes, that others may have found hilarious, left me unmoved. In any case, I didn't get much of it and very little made me laugh. Ah, but the writing, the wit, that was worth the read.

Not as good as the first book unfortunately, but I also know others hold the opposite opinion. Fewer recipes and fewer laughs. I did, however, love the Amazing Grace parody lyrics. I think they were my favourite part.

This is a rather humerous book examining the relationship between two neighbours who just want to be alone - Gerald the ghostwriter and *cough* adventurous chef and Marta the composer and member or an ex-Soviet crime family.

This book is a little chaotic and all over the place. There isn't that much of a plot. Other than Gerald and Marta learning to co-exist. My favourite part was definitely the recipes, even though I probably won't try most of them. Some may seem relatively harmless (like fish cakes) but others include garlic ice cream, cat pie and otter with lobster sauce. Most of which include Fernet Branca (which I discovered is an alcohol and not a person!)… (mais)
