"We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be."
--Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut
I genuinely liked this novel. Yeah, he's straightforward, albeit quirky, but all around it was a good food novel. I call them food novels when they fill me up on more than humor or romance or whatever. Deep novels are pretty good once in a while. Plus, I'm a sucker when it comes to history.
Hmmm. . .Maybe that's why I'm doing so much research for my novels. It's weird I don't put all I've learned into them, but I like knowing about myths and such.
Anyway, I'm going to challenge whoever reads this post to go pick up a new book--one completely different from what you normally read--and see if there's anything you can get out of it. Who knows, maybe it'll become on of your favorites.
